Letter Re: Archiving How-To Videos From YouTube

Dear Jim,
I would like to commend you on your new book, “How to Survive the End of the World as We Know It”. It has a plethora of great information and a welcome addition to my preparedness library.

As far as Internet information available for preppers, YouTube has an abundance of information ranging from food storage, weaponry, survival skills and many other topics. The videos are very useful. I would like to let everyone know that there is a simple program that they can use to download and convert YouTube videos for reference and/or storage. The YouTube Downloader enables all YouTube videos to be downloaded to your PC.

Why is it useful after TSHTF? I suspect that many of our readers will still be able to use their laptops or other handheld file storage devices even if the grid goes down using alternate power / recharging sources. The YouTube videos can be stored on your PC, i-Pod or other similar devices for future reference, or they can then be burned onto a CD or DVD for future reference. In today’s digital age, even though printed reference materials are best, they are becoming obsolete.

I also wish to point out that I found the LDS Preparedness Manual available in .pdf file format that you can download and keep for future reference. This is probably one of the best reference sources regarding long-term food storage I have found. Thanks for all your hard work, – W.M.
