Part 1: Ricky Jay Card Throwing
Part 2: Michael Moschen (Juggling)
Part 3: Megan Rysell ("Georgia Magnet" act)
Part 4: Michael McGiveney (Quick Change)
Part 5: Great Flydini (AKA Steve Martin)
Part 6: Bruce Schwartz (Japanese Wheel Puppets)
Part 7: Shakuntala Devi (Mental Math)
Part 8: Antonio Diavolo (Automaton)
Part 9: Jaime Turner (Glass Harmonica Player)

Never criticize someone else until you have walked a mile in their shoes. Then, when you do criticize them, you will be a mile away from them and you will have their shoes.

Awesome! Thanks for the links!

Jeremy,
I'll give you instructions based on keepvid.com. It looks as though it's basically the same thing.

-Enter the address of the video, select "YouTube" from the pulldown tab, and click "Download."
-After the video has loaded, right-click on "Download Link," and select "save as." Give the file a new name, and save to your desktop or whatever place you'd like.
-Once you've saved it, right-click on it and select "rename." Add ".flv" to the end of the name.

You'll have to download an flv player to play them on. I've tried using conversion programs, but haven't found any that have worked yet. Usually, the video converts, but there is no sound.

Btw, if you watch the video on YouTube before you download it, there will be no download time!

Best
Michael J.

I looked for Steve Martins Flydini act else where and they are all removed also.... I wonder if it was his appearance that prompted the removal of the others?
