Please excuse the top post, bujt you're the right guy to ask, polyt. mp3/audio files I can get. you sent me a website to get mp3's off youtube. it is probably patry my ubuntu linux and gnome, but is there a "canned" website that will grab a video? somebody has a Lot of westerns and I'd like to grab a couple.
we can get 70 billion channels with barf comcast, but I dont see any of these old/old/old movies. [ several zillion tx. ] gary ps: yeah, I KNOW they are ===mostly=== mythic. but sometimes I just need to take a bleeping break. and so far, nothingg works.
