Shhh …. it’s Quiet Tube!

Ever wanted to show your class a You Tube clip, but held back because you didn’t want all the ‘extra’ stuff that surrounds the clip? Too scared of what may pop up in the suggestions area, or in the comments section? Well, there is something you can do to remove all of those hassles …. just be quiet! :)

When You find a You Tube video you would like to use, simply go to the address bar and type the word ‘quiet’ in front of the You Tube in the address.  This would mean your address would go from this:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?hl=en&v=D7o7BrlbaDs&gl=US

to this:

http://www.quietyoutube.com/watch?hl=en&v=D7o7BrlbaDs&gl=US

What this does, is remove everything else from the page …. easy!

Below is an example of the normal You Tube, and then what you will get if you use Quiet You Tube:
