So you want to use a clip of a YouTube video in a presentation or perhaps inside one of your videos.
First, a disclaimer. This totally violates YouTube’s terms of service. So they *could* close your account (which is why the embedded videos below is hosted on Vimeo – to protect my YouTube account.) And it’s possibly not legal. But that’s up to you to determine – and to determine the risks (are you are posting an entire video to your Fortune 500 company website or are you using a short clip in a presentation you give in person to a small group of people?) It’s possible that you can claim fair use. But I’m no lawyer.
The process is easy:
- Open the video you want to download in YouTube
- Copy the video URL
- Open the website KeepVid
- Paste the video URL into this website
- Choose your download quality / format
