How to Use YouTube Safely
UTube Safety Mode
YouTube is now offering parents and teachers more control over the content they see with the announcement of Safety Mode
. When you opt in to Safety Mode, you're choosing not to see mature videos and comments that aren't against our Community Guidelines
, but may not be appropriate for someone under 18. Like Google SafeSearch

You can type the word 'kick' to download YouTube videos. After clicking on the desired video, you insert the word 'kick' in front of the word 'youtube' in the YouTube link (for example: http://www.kickyoutube.com/sarahscoffeemaker1346?). After doing this, you'll be taken to a site that will ask what format you'd like to download the video in, such as MP4 or Flash.
