Salvaging Videos from Disappearing Online Courses using Windows Based PCs

There are lots of details here, but it’s easy once you go through it once or twice, because all it comes down to are the steps below, which you can just try for short video samples without reading the rest of the post, and see if you feel like you need to read the rest of it:

  • Go to the online course as if you were going to view it
  • Hold the Windows key while pressing to get the recording interface
  • Do a few setups (or not, but if so, you’ll be familiar with after first try)
  • Start recording on the recording interface, press Play on the video
  • Stop when done recording or when episode ends and URL changes to next episode. The site keeps on playing, but your video recording will not switch, it seems. You have to leave the video to play to record, unfortunately, not like file downloads, but you can keep it on mute.

Do a few demos first for a few minutes each to get things right. Then go at it for real. Good luck!

What Was the First Video You Saw with a BILLION+ Views?

I just saw my first video with over a BILLION views! Million views is relatively “nothing” for popular stuff these days. So much so that when I was in a video with over 100K views last August, I scoffed at people who were saying I was going “viral”.

Have you ever seen a video with over a billion views?

If not, watch the one below. It’s about 191K above a billion when I just watched it Thu night, Dec 22 2016… then went to post this. 🙂

I wonder how many other videos out there have over a billion views…

Enjoy!
