How To Download a Video From Youtube to A2K

Reply Tue 14 Apr, 2020 12:58 pm
Often on A2K, there are discussions where a member will download a song from Youtube. I am afraid the my computer learning curve has gone flat, and for the life of me, I can't seem to figure out how to do it.

What I can do, is copy and paste the URL. What I want to do is copy the video, so that another member can play the song. BTW, I use an iMac.

Any suggestions gratefully appreciated.

Enclose the youtube video link as follows:
The link is placed between the two bracketed youtube things.

Thanks, guys. I really think that I am going bonkers. I saw the explanation, and it sounded so familiar. Then I remembered that I used to do it all the time, years ago. Now, it completely eluded me. Thanks again!

O.K. Now I am able to do it. But there is something peculiar going on.

I copy the url from YouTube. (That is what I am talking about. I did NOT capitalize the Y and T in YouTube , but it came up that way anyhow.)

I type [/youtube] at the end of the url. The spelling is correct, Small letters for the y and t. I then go to the front of the url, and type [YouTube] I noticed that it comes out in small letters until I put in the bracket. Then the y and t become capitals. Each time I have to change the 2 letters.

It is annoying as hell. I never remember that happening in the past. Any explanations?

It has happened to me at times and it may have had something to do with the browser being used.

Hopefully, someone more internet knowledgeable can offer an answer and/or explain the reason.

(and yes, it is quite annoying)

sounds like an autocorrect issue, maybe...

@Region Philbis,
I can see that.

I detest so much of the autocorrect.
