Sorry I see my error

Thanks Richard, The opening of the file seems to take forever, but once I have it open it seems to be working better.Is there anything I can do to prevent this happening again?I have a problem on another mac. I download bits of video from you tube and have always used ant.com as my video down loader. It has stopped working and I have reloaded it several times. I get a box come up saying that the video thread cannot be picked up., (or words to that effect).I have spoken to ant but they cannot help.
Have you come across this before, is it a hardware problem and if not can you recommend a different down loader.Thanks for your help.look forward to hearing from you.barry

you can use this site Tony

https://www.onlinevideoconverter.com/video-converter

I also advise once a month to do the following

Then start the Mac and hold down the Command and R keys at startup.

Hold these keys until the Apple logo appears. After your computer finishes starting up, you should see a desktop with an OS X menu bar and an OS X Utilities window

choose Disk Utility from the Utilities window, or from the Installer menu if you're started from an installation disc.

Click the First Aid tab.

Click the disclosure triangle to the left of the hard drive icon to display the names of your hard disk volumes and partitions.

Select your Startup Disk (usually named "Macintosh HD").

Click Repair. Disk Utility checks and repairs the disk.

To avoid the issue you had today

    What Customers are Saying:

    Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
