Sending out our Mini-thon dance video reminds me about the challenges of using YouTube with younger students - those inappropriate sidebar videos, the rude comments, the video suggestions at the end that raise a cry of "Can we watch that one next?" When I investigated options several months ago, I found the site ViewPure, which strips all the junk away and leaves you with just the video. It's easy to use - I set up a bookmark for the site on my bookmarks bar. When I want to save a video on ViewPure, I start playing it on YouTube, then hit the "purify" button and it reloads the video into the ViewPure site. From there, I can copy the URL and use the link as needed, for example added to a smartboard page or my class website - or even this blog! I just ran across a blog post from Richard Byrne called A Handful of ways to display YouTube content without "related" content. I was happy to see ViewPure there, as well as some other options. Has anyone tried, or is willing to try out some of these other options?
