Tawfiq, re. downloading videos. There are a number of video grab apps out there. The one I use for things on YouTube is this...

I'm not talking about YouTube videos, I'm talking about these videos of the Dhrupad Festival in the link given by me. These are not downloadable with any of the programmes I know and Wondershare also doesn't work for these. When you found a way to download them I would be very interested in that programme.
