    Huh? Are you trying to upload a Seseme Street video to YouTube? If so, make sure that you have the legal rights to do so first. What exactly do you mean by "from here"? Could you give us a little bit more information?

    And in the future where you need to add something like that, use the EDIT function.

    EDIT: Or do you mean that you want to download (opposite of upload like you said) a YouTube video to your computer?

    Sorry, no, I had posted before about transferring YouTube videos to a program for our iPod, etc... Anyway, I don't even know how to upload a video to put on our desktop! :( How embarrassing.

    So in all, we would like to get a video off YouTube to enjoy when we want.

    Okay, that clears things up, what you will want to do is to take the link from the YouTube video, and go to a website like vixy.net and plug the YouTube link into the box on their website, then you want to change the conversion box that says Converts to: and make it say MOV for Mac (MPEG4 + MP3) and then hit Start, it is that simple and will download to your computer.

    No problem, note that I have had some problems with that site in the past where it tells me that it has a problem getting the video. After waiting an hour or two it usually works fine.
