Since YouTube is a website, you can only save the link to the video. The video itself cannot be saved as a file to a flash drive. Are you using the video in a presentation? As long as you save the link somewhere (you could email the link to yourself or save it in a Power Point or Word Document), and as long as you have internet, you would be able to access that link in the future.

If the link is very long, you can use this wesbite: to shorten the link to make it easier and more presentable. Just put the original video link in, click 'Make TinyURL' and a new, shorter link will be generated that still leads to the video.

If you need further help, there will be a Reference Librarian here until 8pm and staff here until 11pm. Also, you can call us at 610-558-5545.
