Here is another site you might want to try Zamzar. - simply add the url where asked and then the conversion you want, and the nice Zamzar folks will send it to you by email :)

Here are some other nifty tools: for superior search apps - try IckStuff or Google Hacks.

And last but not least, FreeMusicZilla will allow you to download any streaming media from the social websites (Windows only).

You will find other helpful tools HERE.

Hey there -

There's a news story on the CBS news website I'm trying to download (strictly for personal use.) I tired file2hd but was unsuccessful. The web url is:


Any idea how I can grab this vid file? If not file2hd then perhaps another program?

You can use Zamzar

There's another firefox extension called download helper that will grab-->convert-->save any embedded video you come across. If you hate ending up with some video extension like mlk you can get the finished video in whatever format you prefer.

      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
