Downloading worship videos

Sometimes broadband speeds (especially wireless connections) are just not fast enough to play a video clip live from the internet. Embarrassing pauses happen.

What you want is to be able to download the clip so that it is available on your device for reliable use.

Sure, there is useful free software out there. But why not do it in the cloud? Savefrom to the rescue! Just go to the video you want and copy the address, then go to¬†http://en.savefrom.net/ and paste it in. The site will ask you what kind of download you want – usually you’ll want the best quality available.

Here’s an example that you might want to use as a meditation, post-sermon or post-communion song during the Christmas season. Top drawer stuff!

Music: August 3 – “Feeding the 5000”

Not counting the women and children! (Hmmm).

Lectionary hymn and song suggestions are posted on that page for August 3. As per the last post, the latest dates are now posted first for your comfort and convenience. This week I am featuring a couple of suggestions from www.sixmaddens.org, a huge Australian RC collection of Lectionary suggestions, song examples/backings, links to lyrics etc. It’s the search box which is really useful. Tasty!
