How To Download and Store Video

[ad]Dear Computer Lady,

I wish to download and store video tutorials from youtube and others.

How can I do this??

Please try to help me out, Robert

Once you have installed Real Player, every video that can be downloaded will have a small menu pop up with options for saving the video.

Perhaps others can share what they use in the comments section below.
