One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.

Just upgraded from an almost 10 year old Dell PC to a Mac.

I'm after a quick and easy way of downloading kite videos from youtube and vimeo?

Are there any extensions in Safari that do a similar job to Download Helper on Firefox?

Or am I just better downloading FF onto the Mac?

There are several ways to quickly download a video from youtube. The method I use is
1. Go into youtube and bring up the video you want to download
2. in the search bar type the letters ss after the www.
3 this then takes you and the video to "" site
4 select the mp4 format that you want and click download
5 the video will be saved in your downloads file. You can then move or save it to a external hard drive if you wish.

Not sure if this helps John

If you are used to Firefox, keep using it. Works great on Mac.
