It's always been possible to download e.g. YouTube videos, but some of the ways of doing it are a bit protracted.
For a couple of weeks, I've been using:
It makes life easy - just paste the link, and then select which video format you want. If you only want to rip the audio, then again select the format you want. The conversion speed is excellent, as is the download speed.
The conversion speed doesn't seem to depend on the size of the video - a one and a half hour concert is done as quickly as a three minute clip.
Every ten times you do a conversion, you do get a popup, but these are easy to close and none are malignant.
I've had to buy another 64 GB memory stick to take what I've got, and the dragon and I find it much better to watch some of my collection on TV, rather than putting up with some of the rubbish programs that are on.
As an aside, our Spanish friend and masseur has just come back from a visit to the UK, and says that the programs he saw there are as bad as the Spanish.
