I reread a couple of your articles last night on saving and burning video.  But I think you've mentioned doing a bit of that since those were written.  Still using Appian?

I don't do much of it. But wanted to send a youtube video to our youngun in college.  To play on her laptop. But would like to keep the size down smaller than the 8 MB or more that most seem to be...but keep a decent quality. Possible?? 

There was a popular thing at download dot com that I tried out. Worked...but then froze up the desktop big time afterwards. So I downloaded an Appian trial.

Thoughts?

Indeed. Since I've tried a half dozen more and the url=http://pcnet-online.com/content/general/burn-internet-video-to-dvd.htm]Replay Converter[/url] is still the best I've used by far along with being the easiest.

I just downloaded another one the other day but haven't had a chance to even install it yet, don't know why I keep looking, guess it's to find something that I know is impossible; improve the video, but I do.

Yep, it's funny how viewing a video on a tiny window on your PC can look much better than a full screen view of the same video on your TV, even if you understand the format/dpi issues.

Yeah. I did view the video last night after saving and converting with Appian. Then I hit full screen (that's on my laptop, 15" widescreen). Ugly ugly ugly.  I may play some more, maybe not.  I don't do it often enough to make it worthwhile to buy, unless I find other advantages to it. wink wink
