I have tried and tried but have been unable to download The Wood Whisperer’s videos and am unable. I have e-mailed Marc and he said they are not locked in any way but they will not download from his site. If I can find them on YouTube they seem to download ok.

I use to use VDownloader but that now fails every thing. I now use Easy Downloader which is ok with YouTube videos but copying and pasting the web address from Marc’’s site fails every time. It says there is not video to download.

Any help??

Here’s what I did to download the videos. Select any of the videos and it will start to play. Press the pause button. Below you will see a link that says “Show Notes/Hi Res Versions”, click on it. Another window will open up that is the notes for the episode. You should see two links that say “Click Here For The Small Video” and “Click Here For The Large Video”. Right click on either of these and select “Save Target As…”, (this is using Internet Explorer). Simply select a folder to download the MPEG 4 video to, no need for any additional software.

I think you should download them via a program that is designed to do such a thing, like iTunes. I know that Marc has his videos available through iTunes, so if you download that program (you don’t have to have a Mac or an iPod to use iTunes), you can automatically download TWW videos when they become available.

I use a program called Miro to download his and a lot of others. It also is a player to view them with once downloaded. When I get enough of them to fill a DVD, I then transfer them to a DVD for offline storage. You just set up the RSS feed and once added, it will check the sites each time you start the program. You can also specify the time interval to check while the program is running. I believe it is one hour by default. Website is
