Spread the word – coconut wireless goes digital

There was a Comments exchange on Coup FourPointFive between Anonymouses (anonymice? anonymii?) that is too good to allow to disappear into the ether. The best way to spread the word of Mara’s YouTube broadcasts to those of us who without internet access. Read more below, and please feel free to circulate.
Do keep checking in to Coup 4.5 for the latest developments. Those guys really have their finger on the pulse.

http://www.keepvid.com

k, steps of doing that please, for some of us that are not familiar with it.

May 18, 2011 10:09 PM. @ anon 9:34.  Ok…these are the steps:

  1. Go to the ‘Keep Video’ website by typing in http://www.keepvid.com in your browser address or just go to google and google keepvid either way it will take you to the website.
  2. Once you’re there, copy the video’s url that is: http://www.youtube.com/watch? v=n5o7sffmRGQ  or  http://www.youtube.com/watch? v=CFLnV01a2p8  and paste it in the blue url box
  3. Click download and you’re on
  4. It will give different options of format to download in…you can choose which ever one fits you  Note: you fill find that there is also an option for saving the mp3 format of the video that is the sound only…….this will come in handy for phones with no video…
  5. Once you’ve downloaded, connect your phone to your computer and save the videos in it.
  6. Once you’re done you can start sharing media file around…walla…job done!  Note: you have to download the video one by one….
