downloading tuts and tips

Sancin | Posted in General Discussion on

I am putting this message on several discussion lists so you may see it there if you visit the same ones I do. Does anyone know how to download the video clips found on various sites like Yahoo, facebook, etc? I want to keep a file on sewing tips and techniques and tuts, but don’t want to sign in and watch all the adverts all the time. ­čśĽ And I want to take a CD to my sewing room where there is no internet connection.
Thanks in advance.

    What on earth is a "tut"?

        Ah Ha!  I should have been able to figure that out, but it just never occurred to me.  Thanks so much for the translation.  There are so many of these "short-cuts" that I don't know yet.  But, thanks to folks like you, I'm learning.  Thanks so much for taking the time to respond.  I appreciate your thoughtfulness.

          I thought 'tuts' was the stuff not to do so that no one would go 'tut-tut, bad'.

            LOL!  That is very funny.  Thanks for the giggle ...as I had forgotten about that.  My grandmother did a lot of that when we were kids.  ;-)

            Finally........I know why my niece is called 'tuts' by her university friends.  She just finished her 5th yr university and she would 'teach' or give 'tutorials' to her friends.......Wow.......and to think I would find this on a sewing forum..  Gives me my giggle for today too.

            As I was the one who started the Tut I should also mention that when I was a teenager, the events of the summer was to go to TUTS in Stanley Park - Theatre Under the Stars. Maybe some of you remember that - today's teens would probably find it so tame, but, when driving with one of my cousins we love to belt out some of the Broadway tunes we first heard there.

            >>>Inside Every Older Person Is A Younger Person Wondering What Happened.<<<

            Your Personal Quote is particular apropos right now, as I have a birthday coming up next week ...and I am in a daze ...truly "wondering what happened"!  giggle.  What a great quote, Sancin.  Thanks ...you've give me a good laugh, albeit ironic.

    Are you using a MAC or a PC computer?

    My MAC automatically stores downloaded videos in an Attachments file, but I use Favorites on my PC.

    Why don't you just bookmark them into a special "Tute" folder and click them open when you want to see them? That's what I do.

      Thanks for the suggestions - I have found an answer. Can download with RealPlayer, and/or FireFox add on - both work. I want to put this info onto a CD or stick to use on a computer that will not be connected to the internet, thus will not be able to open on line when needed. Again, thanks.
