    How can I record a ted streaming talk? As far as I have seen these are free videos and there also is the download button, but I click the button and nothing happens, it doesn´t download. Do I need a special ted recorder to download these videos?
    Any help is appreciated

    Hi, I just went onto TED's website, picked a video and random and clicked download. It pops up asking if you want subtitles or not and a continue button. Clicking continue opens up a mp4 in another window. Here you can just go File -> Save to get the video.

    Also welcome to the forums :)

    Try using a different browser just in case.

    Hi,

    Lots of free tools and online tools also to record ted streaming videos or any other streaming videos from other sites.

    Thanks a lot.
    Tried the different browser and it worked :) Didn´t think of that
    Smart tool the Audials tool - could be something if lots of downloads are needed

    I use a Firefox plugin called Download helper. Been using it for years because my internet / computer is rubbish. Whatever you do don't download the converter, it puts a massive QR code in the corner of the screen and you can just use VLC.
