If you’re a fan of the Dinosaw weekly updates, you’ll notice I use a bunch of short video clips. These are all used under what’s known as “fair use” as I use them to report on an article, invention or whatnot. Often the videos are on YouTube. I used to screen record them, which was a real faff, but eventually came across 4k Video Downloader. What a time saver! Literally, just download it (it’s free), paste the YouTube URL and it does the rest. I then just open the video in Quicktime, trim a bit out and whack it in Powerpoint.
There’s a bunch of little applications which really help out, just when you need it and 4k Video Downloader is definitely one you need in your armoury.
