Odd how someone who would never think about stealing anything thinks this is ok. 'Everyone does it'

Ask any software or web developer how they feel about 'Pirates'
Your response was expected.
I do find it interesting that you quote me before making your post. This entire thread (not just my post) is about how Escape owners can save the orientation videos on their computers for future reference without having to be connected to the internet. Anyway, I feel pretty safe in saying that nobody on this forum is going to pirate these instructional videos for their own personal gain. ETI owns the work product. If I thought for one minute they would care about me making a personal copy of their videos, I wouldn't do it. Reace states in his first orientation video the purpose of making the videos is for Escape owners to use the videos as a reference. My guess is ETI doesn't use the videos or YouTube as a source of income. But that's just a guess. All that being said, it still doesn't make it legal. So let your conscience be your guide.

Downloading content in the “public domain” for personal use is not illegal, unless expressly forbidden by the owner of the content, which in ETI’s case is not forbidden.
If you distribute the content for personal gain, then you move into legal problems.

My point was that YouTube does not allow their site to be used as a conduit to download any kind of content. I don't know YouTube well at all but I think they have a 'premium' membership or something similar that will allow that, or so I've been told.

I, like others, would like to see the videos on ETI's site for download.

I have all the individual video files and thought I would try uploading them, one at a time, to the files section of the forum - anyone who wanted them could download them from there. But the files section only accepts PDF or DOC files, not video files.

Perhaps that has something to do with why ETI doesn't put the files on their website. Videos vs PDF,s etc...

Any thoughts?

I'm an old 'bare metal programmer' hobbyist since I turned over our farm to the next gen. but have never done any applications/websites. I like to bypass the OS/BIOS and go direct to the hardware. (Intel Assembler required, unless you like C++)

I'm Nowhere near as efficient as the OS but lots of fun.

Never worked a single day at my EE degree but I still remember a few things

Videos are massive files. Most forums won't allow them to be uploaded due to the cost of the storage necessary to host video. You can embed links to the videos which keeps them hosted where they live and most services, youtube included allow you to embed the video links on a website or post.

MacX YouTube Downloader

For Mac users there is MacX YouTube Downloader. I have used it to download instructional videos from ETI and others for reference when I'm not connected to the Internet. There is a free version and a paid version. I have the free version and it works fine. The program saves the video by default as MP4, though you can select other formats.

Read thru this thread as we are picking up our new 19 late May and I was going to start watching the videos as time allows, but what a great idea to save them to a drive. I just checked my YouTube account, which is free, and they offer a one month trial which appears to allow downloading. After the month it's 11.99 per. Gonna give it a try.

I've had YouTube Premium for several months. Within the YouTube App for mobile devices, you are able to download & save videos for 30 days for viewing within the app. The videos are stored encrypted on your device and must be viewed through the app. Once downloaded, as long as you stay a YouTube Premium member, you will be able to view the videos offline.

Interesting, so were you able to save them to a thumb drive also?

Once downloaded, you can save them anywhere.
