Have any of you ever seen this website?

He does some amazing work all by hand. I find it very educational and entertaining and I'd like to show some of his work in my classes. He goes fast and has some great photography. My problem is my school district blocks utube from all the school computers. What I'd like to do is download some of his work on a finger drive at home, and take it to school and plug it into my computer and show it to the class. Is this possible? Thanks Bob

There is a program that will download youtube videos. I use YouTube Downloader, I don't remember if it is a paid program or not. My district has it installed on all of the teachers computers.

You can also use RealPlayer. You can download the basic version for free(I use the upgraded version, but I use a lot of video in my classroom). This program allows you to download and then convert into whatever format you use to show video (.wmv, mp4, etc)

There is a free Addon for Firefox called DownloadHelper. Works well, and will run in the background. You can load it up with several downloads at once. Just surf the Web as you are used to, when DownloadHelper detects it can do something for you, the icon gets animated and a menu allows you to download files by simply clicking an item.
Available at https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/video-downloadhelper/

I use Real Player and it was free. There is limited ability to edit and convert, but VLC viewer will play them without editing or converting them. VLC is the free shareware viewer that turns your video icons into a safety cone.

Also Bob, send me a 64 GB flash drive so I can send you a long overdue woodworking curriculum upgrade. You haven't seen this new stuff and I really think you would like it. Anyone who sees it thinks it is the best around.

Tom, I've had a lot of problems with my computer I finally got a new one with windows 8. I,m not sure if windows 8 is the answer yet. Anyway while I was at the computer place, I ordered a 64GB finger drive which I'll be sending to you as soon as I get it. Many Thanks, Bob Itnyre

When I asked the Costco salesman to show me a new computer with Windows 8, he couldn't get around in it himself. I'm unimpressed. It was made to work both on tablets and computers. Educators are usually lagging behind and I attended a curriculum workshop where they specifically said to save everything we worked on in WORD 2007 or PowerPoint 2007 so anyone could open it. Ha! I have heard that Windows 8 has been a financial flop and Microsoft is planning to release another version (8.1) that is more user friendly since it will reinstate the start button. I personally still use Windows XP.

Anyway, e-mail me when you are ready. woodshopteacher@NOSPAMcableone.net. Remove the obvious. I will include the shareware VLC video viewer so the You Tube video links included in the PowerPoint's will work. The videos are downloaded and saved with the material so, even though your school blocks You Tube, it will still work. You will love it. By the way, since you are middle school, any projects or curriculum you might be willing to share would be much appreciated since I will now be teaching part time at a Charter school. They only have a few scroll saws, some hand drills, a router and router table, a mini-drill press and mini-band saw. I have some donated hardwoods and some 1/4" panels. Not much to work with so I'm designing projects around them. It's going to be a challenge but I think it will also be a lot of fun.
