    I occasionally need to slow down a youtube (or generally, any on-line) video. I am not able to locate software that will do this for my iMac.
    I did come across something for Windows called Enounce.

    Any recommendations?
    Thank you

    why would you want to slow down a youtube video?....ummm.

    Anyway wouldn't it just be simpler to first download the clip using a dowloand manager to your computer and then you can do what you want with it. (eg changing it from .FLV to mp4 or MOV so you can watch it in slow motion on your wide screen T.V.)

    Specifically I'd like to slow down some videos to analyze the bowing patterns of some violin playing.
    If I could change the YouTube clip into an mp4 file, could I then slow down the video?
    Thanks,
    Stacy

    Yes, you can.

    Use something like TubeTV to download the youtube vid an convert it to an mp4. Then in Quicktime player open the movie and go to:
    Window - shows a/v controls
    and slow down the playback speed

    slow down you tube video

    Thanks for the suggestions. I'm pretty new to OS10.5.6 so I have some investigating to do. I have visual hub and vlc media player, which may be able to download a youtube video and then convert it to the correct format.

    I have a flashplayer.xpt file in Internet File folder but I can't find a flashplayer application.

    I never knew that QuickTime had the slow down control. I'm the kind of computer user that finds a couple of safe pathways and sticks to them, relieved that the machine doesn't crash.
    Thanks again. Any other suggestions would be appreciated.

    yeah Quicktime is very powerful under the hood. That's what I like about Mac stuff. The complexity is there if you want it, but if not then things will still work fine, and hopefully in an intuitive way :)

    I don't think Visual Hub or VLC can download and convert flash movies. They are great at what they do do.

    Here is link for TubeTV:
    http://www.chimoosoft.com/products/tubetv/

    It's free. You can download and convert many flash video types to flash or for iPhone, iPod, Apple TV, or just to your Mac. Very useful. Then you can have the video on your Mac and watch it whenever you like without going online.

    I downloaded TubeTV app & it has worked so far. Thanks.

    One point - it seems to automatically format for iPods. I would like it make mp4 and I don't see an option for that. What's the easiest way to create mp4 files from YouTube (using TubeTV?).

    Thanks again.

    Enounce is coming out with something called MySpeed for Mac in May. You can test the Beta now.
