YouTube Video: Download and Import to iMovie

If you've always wondered how to get a video from YouTube into your iMovie project, well wonder no more! I put together a simple and short tutorial on how to do this. The video has no audio, but the steps are simple:
  1. Use FireFox
  2. Install Video Downloader add-on
  3. Go to a YouTube video
  4. Click download arrow at bottom of FF
  5. Upload the saved .flv file to ZamZar and convert to .mp4
  6. Check your email and download the converted file
  7. Import the converted .mp4 file into iMovie
  8. That's it!
Watch the video here (it may take a while to load, it's 13MB!):
