Want to imbed Youtube videos into your Notebook software???

~* UPDATE *~
I'm even MORE excited than yesterday thanks to Sarah's comment below so I'm updating my original post to reflect the MUCH easier and simpler way to download and imbed Youtube videos into Notebook10 documents....

Once you find the Youtube video that you want to download, type kick in front of the youtube address like this:

and then hit enter. This will take you to another screen where you will be able to download.
  1. If it's your first-time, a warning box may pop-up - just select "Run" to continue. This is perfectly safe and will not install software.
  2. A list of download links will appear. Click on the format you want (I was told to choose FLV for SMARTboards- I choose High quality) and select "Save As..."

To embed it into your Notebook software, click on Insert, drop down and click on Flash Vido File (FLV).
When the insert window opens, follow the path to where your files download, choose the file you want to insert and...


I'm sure many of you already knew how to do this, but for those of you that didn't I hope this helps you to jump for joy too!!!

Thanks again Sarah, for the tip on how to do it in a few less steps!!!


  1. Hey can also imbed flash files into Smart Notebook by typing kick in front of the youtube address and then when it brings you to the save screen, right click on the FLV file and save it to your computer. Then imbed it into the file. Just another way! :)

  2. Thanks for the info! That's what I did to start with and got the whole download page.... I tried it at school today though and VIOLA all over again... it worked! SOOOOOO much easier! Thanks for letting me know! I'm like a kid in a candy store now finding videos to embed into my math lessons. :-)
