If I load a video from the internet, will I still be able to watch it if I no longer have internet access?

Asked by Fly (8697points) June 24th, 2012

This is probably a stupid question, but I’m writing a report on this hearing for work, and I was hoping to watch the video on the train before work tomorrow morning. If I load the video up in the morning prior to leaving for work, will I be able to watch it on the train (where I have no wifi access)? Thanks for any help!

No. But if you download youtubedownloader you can download it for later.

Yes, as long as you don’t shut down the computer or reload the page it will stay loaded.

@Rarebear Thanks for the tip, it sounds like a great concept. Unfortunately, it doesn’t support the site that I needed to download from.

If you need to download just torrent replay media catcher.

Try savetube or keepvid.

Applian Replay Media Catcher will grab videos and MP3s from the web for you to store and replay on other devices later.

@Rarebear Not only did that program not work, but it also changed all of my search settings to Yahoo without my permission and I now can’t delete the toolbar that it installed or change my address bar search settings back to Google. Any idea how to change these back? I wouldn’t recommend that program to people in the future.

It also keeps reverting my toolbar search back to Yahoo even after I delete Yahoo and make Google my default. (I’m using Firefox)

@Fly Oy. Sorry about that. It didn’t do that to me, or at least on the install I didn’t click it. Try deleting the Yahoo tool bar in your control panel install/uninstall programs.

I download youtube videos all the time and convert them to .mp4 files with this program for teaching purposes. It works with Firefox and Chrome.

@Rarebear I finally got it taken care of, but it was unfortunately (and probably intentionally) not as simple as just uninstalling the toolbar. I’m sure it’s a good program for most video sites like Youtube but it’s from a government website and the government uses a completely different program for videos that was incompatible. Thanks for the help, though!

@Fly By videos I had assumed you were using Youtube. Again, I’m sorry about that.
