convert youtube avi
One of the things you will find is that youtube video is HIGHLY compressed and is made to view, not to edit
Another thing you will find is that Premiere does NOT like to edit that type of file
You MIGHT be better off with Premiere Elements... it is more designed for consumer files, as well as costing a LOT less
i I will likely never have the need to use again.
My advice is: get a professional to do it for you.
To John Smith,
Thanks, I have now dl elements and I am going to fool with it today, wish me luck.
Exactly why I am here. Because I am computer functionally illiterate, I am hoping someone here can either:
A: Talk me through the process.
B: Be convinced to do it for me. I am willing to deal. :) (I suspect it is the kind of thing that, a person who Knew what they were doing, could do it in about five min.)
For me, who has only used computers for the most Basic things.....
I have tried putting everything onto a CD and taking it to places, but each time I get told that, even though I found the thing on youtube, it is (Was) a real movie released on TV and as such cannot be touched due to copyright. (goofy, if ya ask me. I don't want to sell the thing, just watch it)
But I thank you.
I think Malick meant find a professional in your area that you can pay to do the job. I second that advice.
Which I tried to do. I would be perfectly happy to pay someone to do it.
Unfortunately, I have already talked to just about every service in my area - and each and every time, the monkey in question has quoted "copyright, can't do anything for you" (Or words to that effect) before hanging up on me.
So, I am left to the friendly folk online who know what they are doing. I sadly, do not.
Pathetic I know.
Makes you wonder who the monkey is...
Go to videohelp.com and find the section on format conversion
There MAY be a tool that will convert youtube files into a format you may edit... with, of course, not very good quality due to the fact that YT files are highly compressed
If you do find a file conversion program, I still think you should stick with P-Elements... costs WAY less, and should have all the functions you need
