  2. safeshare – The free account allows you to save up to 20 videos from Yourtube or Vimeo. You will have a video without adds and comments to show your students.

You can share your saved video on social media platforms as well.
  3. nicertube – Copy a youtube url you want to show and follow the prompts on the site and you will create a link to show your selected video without the annoying ads surrounding the youtube site.
