How can you download lessons
This was just asked on Vocabulary & Grammar sections. I have a great interest in it also since I cannot do it on line. I asked this question here since Heidita will move that here tomorrow. I downloaded the five lessons from YouTube and they play well on my machine. Perhaps if we generate plenty of interest, they may will be available for us.
Qfreed, perhaps he wants to play them on his computor whilst he is offline, not everyone has a permanent internet connection for instance here we can sit in the public library all day with our laptops and recieve the internet free via wifi which is good for pensioners like myself and anyone else who can't afford to maintain a permanent connection. Of course you would have to keep quiet in the library but you could download and then play them back when you got home.
I am not on any video capture site when I download from YouTube. My computer buffers the file while I am playing it, then if I wish, it will record it on my hard drive. The disadvantage I have not being on-line is that I do not receive any points for completion of a lesson. But, just like all of you, I am here to learn Spanish not to herd points. Also I am thanking Quentin and the rest of you for all the help you were trying to give, specially the volunteers who unselfishly give up their time for us.
I've heard that there are special programs for downloading films from youtube. Check the website below for downloading anything from youtube.com - all you need to do is paste the link from the film in the box and click on the red information below: "sciagaj film" - it will donwload to your computer as video.flv.

My point exactly. He did not download lessons from YouTube. You can copy a link from YouTube or you can copy embed codes, but you are not downloading files. Once you embed the player somewhere (whether it be a personal website, a blog site, facebook, MySpace, wherever, you still have to link to YouTube to watch the lesson.
If he actually wants to download the files to burn onto a DvD player, or an Ipod player, an mp3 player, or as you said, watch them offline, that's simple to do. But he needs to tell us how he plans on watching them for us to be able to tell him whether he needs, mov. avi, Mp4, dvd, flv, mp3, etc. file formats. If he's going to watch them on an Ipod I would send him to Itunes to download the lessons so that he would get them in MP4 format. If he wants to play them on his TV and needs them in DVD format. I might be able to tell him where he could get the flv files converted to dvd format. If he has a player that plays avi it isn't going to help him to download flash video. If he want to watch them on his computer with a specific player then I could tell him what kind of file types he needs to download in and maybe where he could get them in that format.

Then what is your question?
Do you want to play them on some other device like an Ipod or a Dvd player?
im pretty sure you dont need to download them, they are just on the website, but i might be mistaken
