It's a violation of youtube's TOS to download video's from them. And it clearly is a copyright violation if you edit them and publish the edited version.
No help here for that.
The best way to backup depends on the circumstances. 125 hours of video's would be a lot of DVD's to burn to. But a lot of upload time to webbased storage also. Maybe the best: 2 different external disks, stored at different locations.
CNET Members which is the best video capture and editing software and equipment in your opinion? Windows XP Home Media Center Edition is my pc w/service pack 3.
I want to be able to download streaming videos from sites like vimeo, vodpod, youtube and google video edit them for playback and internet posting.
Price is a consideration.
Also what is the best storage or data back up system or process you would recommend? I recently had to wipe my harddrive and lost 125 hours of video research in the process. Is there a way to recover this from my harddrive?
And as i rebuild this library what would be the best way to safely store this somewhere in the event i get another virus that disables my pc?
