As a moderator, im often moving threads around, but even I am unsure of where to put this one laugh.gif laugh.gif

Ok, so for some time ive wanted to slow down some of my favorite youtube vids so I can learn some of the more complex guitar runs.

Ive found a free application that allows simple downloading. I was under the impression I could then slow these down in windows media player, but that does not appear to be the case.

I have the speed settings bar up in media player, but there is no slider. I cannot seem to slow down these flash videos.

Any ideas what im doing wrong? smile.gif

regards
Matt aka fishface

you can do it in any better video editing software than WMP. I think even Sony Vegas can do it which we all use.

Emir is right, you should have no trouble slowing it down in Vegas. There is trial versions around, test it out and if you like it purchase it - its well worth it smile.gif

Yes you can do it in Sony Vegas, but results may not be awesome. Maybe you want to extract audio from those youtube videos and slow them down, without video?

Anyway, in Vegas, put the clip in the timeline, hold CTRL and stretch the video to right in order to make it longer and to slow it down. In project settings > audio > select best under Resemple and Stretch quality.
That should do it smile.gif

Cheers,
Bogdan

hi Bogdan,

the video is important to me, as is the audio. I can work alot out by ear, but some of the runs are just crazy and its very hand to see the fingerings smile.gif

I don't know what software you are using for downloading YT videos, but if you have the chance, try YouTube Downloader. This little software has download and convert function so you can convert flv into avi, mov, mp3 etc...

Cheapest version of Vegas is Vegas Movie Studio 9 and costs around 50-60$. If you ask me - well worth piece of software.

There's also a very easy way of downloading youtube videos:

go to www.savevid.com and put the url of the YT video on the bar there and choose in which format you would like to download the video and vola! no software needed smile.gif
