With the popularity of video sharing websites, a modern day geek simply can’t allow him/herself to not have a number of tools used to get the most out of your experience with those websites. Sometimes you’re after a video you’ve seen on YouTube and want to have it saved on your computer – or you may have been looking for a particular song and only managed to find it on YouTube. In any case, there are some nifty little programs out there that can help you greatly!
To get the most out of any video sharing website, you’ll need a good program to download videos from it. YouTube usually has the most popular videos, so you’ll probably spend most of your time downloading your videos from there. Make sure you examine the options of the program carefully though, in order to ensure that you’re converting the video properly and getting the best quality out of it.
Afterwards, you may wish to extract the sound or music from that video – this can be a complicated process if you don’t know what you’re doing, but the right tool for the job can make it very easy – a good program to convert videos to MP3 files can save you a whole lot of effort and time, and make the whole deal easier for you in general. Just make sure that, again, you familiarize yourself with the program’s options so that you know what to expect from the file you’ve converted!
