What software to download video

  Eileanbeag 12:00 14 Apr 2014

As my son's internet connection is very poor he would like to download and save video tutorials particularly re Adobe video editing. Can anyone suggest the best way to do this?

The snag here is the poor internet connection. Videos tend to be large and regrettably the only suggestion that I can make is to improve the internet connection.

what he thought of doing was to download to Tablet and then transfer to computer - would that work?

Maybe this could be helpful worth a try

Thanks - will pass the link to him

The download speed to tablet is likely to be the same as the computer. I don't see the point of adding another step.

The reason for downloading to tablet is that he can do this through free wi fi. His internet connection is such that he can not be sure of completing any download which can be very frustrating.

Thanks for link. Have tried quite a number but am getting Can't open file after I download. Can't find solution to this. Any advice would be appreciated

Are you trying to open the downloaded file a tablet or a pc?

What message comes up when you try open the file? What file type? Example video tutorial .avi or .xvid or even .mkv ?
