Hmm, never even thought of all the handy handyman stuff that might be on there. I learned a great deal about painting by watching YouTube vids though. Something that strikes me time and again: just what a total stranglehold on human creativity a few big publishing and music companies had in the past. They basically decided what we got to see, read and listen to. Now, suddenly, there are a bazillion hugely creative people online, freely sharing everything from their music to knowledge to homemade movies. I suspect this will end up being a far bigger threat to the current film and music industry than any amount of piracy.
Of course, the clever operators will learn how to use YouTube to their advantage instead of running around getting videos deleted for copyright infringement.
Now you replied while I was editing my previous message, so perhaps you missed it, so here is the edit again:
Edit: One problem with ClipGrab: it doesn’t tell you how big the file is that you are going to download. Since I have a cap on my internet data, this is important information to me. I also notice that I now suddenly get messages from something called McAfee WebAdvisor, i.e. once again they installed software on my computer without asking or telling me.
