A German website that is like a German-version of USMLE World! Amazing!

Miamed.de website is like a German-version of USMLE World. There are MCQ questions along with explained answers. Sometimes, there are videos too.

There are photos, e.g. ECGs, that accompany some questions

There is an explanation that appears whenever you click an answer, wether correct or false.

Moreover, there is explanation to all clinical subjects.

Unlike USMLE World, this website has explnation. It is like a textbook. Amazing especially when using translation extensions.

You can use Chrome translation extensions while reading and this would make learning easier (See this post about translation extensions in Chrome).

 

Example explanation. Notice the translation appearing for a word.

It is amazing! It is for money but you can try the full site for free for five days. It is AMAZING!!! The question bank The subscription fee is luckily not like USMLE World. There are different paying plans. For one month, it is only 18 Euro! If you tried this website, then you can easily decide that this is NOTHING!.

Yes, there are examination videos of this website that are freely available through their YouTube channel. They are the best German examination videos that I have so far seen. They are like, if not better, than the videos that accompany Macleod’s Clinical Examination. The reason is that these videos contain animations within the videos and they are high-quality videos. Their channel can be found here. This is an example video of respiratory examination:

 

More details about the website: I received this email from them today after registration for the five-day free testing period:

Can I download a YouTube playlist or a YouTube channel using IDM (Internet Download Manager)? No!

Internet Download Manager- the fastest download accelerator

Yes, you can download individual YouTube videos using IDM. Unfortunately, IDM does not support automatic downloading of multiple YouTube videos. In other words, IDM does not support downloading YouTube playlists or YouTube channels.

The following description is from the official website of IDM:

 YouTube grabber.

Internet Download Manager can record and download FLV videos from popular sites like YouTube, MySpaceTV, and Google Video. The best way of downloading webpage embedded videos from the Internet is here. After installing IDM, “Download This Video” button pops up whenever you are watching a video anywhere in the Internet. Just click on the button to start downloading clips.

Notice the green “Download This Video” button in the left upper corner of the page.

As a result, you need another program called Free YouTube Download . In a previous post of mine, I explained  how to use it to download YouTube playlists or YouTube channels . Recently, in an indication of how good this program is, this post has become the second most common generator of visitors to my Blog; 15.0% (1,010) of all visits to my blog during the last 3 months.

To download this program and to learn how to use it, please visit the following post:

How to download all videos from a youtube playlist or even all videos of a youtube channel?

Eight months after the closure of Library.nu: Are there any good alternatives for downloading free e-books?

In February 2012, the great book sharing website library.nu was closed after a court order issued by “The International Publishers Association and the German Publishers and Booksellers Association“. The question that immediately arised: Are there alternatives to library.nu?

For months, I only knew three good websites. None of them, however, was as good as library.nu. The one I liked the most was a website called the “BookFinder“. Today, I found a new website that seems to be a good candidate to be called the “Successor of Library.nu”. This website impressed me by the number of books it contains. In addition, and more importantly, it impressed me by the fact that you do not have to wait before downloading any book; all downloads start automatically without even the need for typing a CAPTCHA.  Finally, it allows you to simultaneously download multiple  books . This great website is called LegalReads.

Concerning the other “not bad” library.nu-like websites, I personally recommend the Book Finder website. Through my experience during the past months, it was the best one of all others.

Compared with LegalReads.com, there are certain problems with the BookFinder. Firstly, there is a download limitation in which you cannot download more than a specific number of books at a time (LegalReads allows multiple simultaneous downloads). Secondly, downloads takes longer time to start (LegalReads downloads virtually start in less than 10 seconds). Finally, and most troubling, sometimes, BookFinder used to give me a message that the book I wanted to download is “not available for downloading at the time being” and to “come back later“. Apart from these three minor disadvantages, my first impression is that both the BookFinder website and the LegalReads website contain the same number of e-books. Only further experimentation will reveal the difference.

There are other two alternatives. However, they are very unreliable. Nonetheless, maybe you can use them as a last resort if  you could not find the book you wanted in the above two websites:

1)  Library Genesis Project

2) Free Book Spot

Update 20/01/2013:

www.legalreads.com is now closed. In my opinion, this leaves the BookFinder as the “Heir of Library.nu”. After using it for more than 1.5 years, here is my review of it.

Below is a compilation of different books websites. I compiled them from different sources in addition to comments posted in my Blog. I feel indebted to thank “boral” who contributed a nice list of 10 popular websites. Please, like boral did, if you know about other “good” websites not mentioned in my list, then drop a comment!

Note: The websites followed by five red  starts (*****) are the best in my opinion.

How to download all videos from a youtube playlist or even all videos of a youtube channel?

Notice: I am writing this video because many medical students have contacted me on youtube asking me for instructions on how to download some videos from my channel. Namely, anatmoy videos by Dr. Ahmed M. Kamal. I responded to each person individually. However, because of being asked this question frequently, I decided to pubish a post about the topic. “The straw that broke the camel’s back was this comment” by youtube user “freehomeland”:

image

Apparently, this person is not asking for howto download my channel. However, downloading the channel is what he will certainly ask me to teach him after I tell him that the way he is planning to download the same videos is not only more lengthy, but most importantly, would cause him to download unnammed videos in a very rare format that can only be played (to my knowledge) using “Windows media player classic”. So, Mr. Homeland, download the videos from my channel. It would save you not only effort and time, but aslo,  the “quality” of the videos you are going to download. Thank you.

Two years ago, it was the first time that I first needed to download multiple videos from a youtube channel. There are a lot of programs that allows you to download individual videos like Real Player, Internet Download Manager… But I  wanted a program that could download 20 or 30 videos automatically without the need of my opening each video, clicking download, choosing where to download the video, starting the download, etc.

I remeber that I searched for hours without finding a program that could achive this goal. “There is no such program!!!” I easily deduced. At some point, I found a firefox addon that could do the multiple downloads automatically. Only to ruin my happiness, many errors occurred and downloading each video individually turned out to be much easier than using their addon.

I remember that I surrendered, “It is impossible that such a program exists” I thought. No doubt, the number of youtube visitors will decrease if every user could download all videos  of a playlist or a channel and later on watch them offline. What do you think?

But to my amazement, up to this moment, I am still fascinated by a program I found; it is called “Free Youtube Download” by a company called “DVDVIDEOSOFT”. It proved that I was wrong; there exists a program!!!

image

image

Yes, this program does not only download whole youtube playlists, but also, whole youtube channels, Can you believe that? Add to this that the program is a freeware; in fact, all the programs of this company are freewares!!!

The features of Free YouTube Download:

Free YouTube Download is one of the most usable programs on the web to download YouTube videos, single videos as well as whole collections such as:
– complete playlists and show lists;
– users’ channels;
– all videos from personal playlists (History, Liked, Favourites, Watch later, etc.);
– artist’s playlists;
– videos from Movies Category;
– videos from Music Category;
– videos from YouTube charts;
– video responses.

Free YouTube Download combines simplicity of usage as well as advanced downloading features which you can set as you like:
– download videos in original YouTube quality or convert them to AVI, MP4, WMV;
– enjoy multistream downloading;
– customize output name easily;
– save and load links from external text files;
– save download history;
– import videos to iTunes automatically;
– download videos which require YouTube authorization via Firefox, Internet Explorer and Google Chrome;
– enable compatibility with screen reading software.

Free YouTube Download contains no spyware or adware. It’s clearly free and absolutely safe to install and run.

As a thank-you for this great program and other great programs this company produces, I subscribed to their Facebook page. If you liked their program (I am pretty sure that you will), I suggest that you subscribe to their Facebook page as a small return for their great free programs. Here is the link: http://www.facebook.com/dvdvideosoft.

Finally, here is the link to the page where you can download “Free youtube Download”. http://www.dvdvideosoft.com/products/dvd/Free-YouTube-Download.htm

I highly recommmend this video. I have been using this program since more than 1.5 years, and till now, I haven’t found any thing negative about it. Not a single error did I face when I used this program to download hundreds of videos from youtube.

Anatomy videos by Dr. Ahmed M. Kamal: How to download my whole channel on watch the videos offline? For those of you not interested in “anatomy”, you can read this tutorial just an example.

To download youtube videos  and watch them offine, follow the following steps. I am sure that watching these videos offline would be easier for most students taking into considerations that the prevalence of internet use is still low in most arab countries (isn’t it?) not to mention the absence of high speed connections.

Downloading the videos certainly will decrease the number of views of the videos on my channel. This is to clarify more the fact that I did not upload these videos for fame or financial gain. This is in particular to someone who once contacted  me alluding that I might be “profiting” form publishing these videos!!!

image

What about the permission of Dr. Ahmed M. Kamal? My explanation is still the same; it is the one I wrote more than two years ago and is placed in the “Description” of each and every 400+ anatomy videos I published.

Steps:

1. If you want to download my whole channel, copy its URL: www.youtube.com/jameeljo. If you want to download specific playlist, for example, “Upper Limb”, locate its URL then copy it: http://www.youtube.com/user/jameeljo#p/c/54B41F68AF3280F1. Do the same for other playlists either in my channel or in any place in youtube!

2. Open “Free YouTube Download”.

3. Click on the “Paste Button”.

4. The program will take a short time analyzing the channel; notice the word “Checking”. You can choose the “Quality” of the videos to be downloaded. The program can download the videos in multiple formats; the higher the defintion, the larger the size of the downloaded video, and subsequently, the longer the time for the downloads to finish!

image

5. the numbe of videos will appear.

6. You can specify which videos to or not to download by clicking on the “Playlist” blue link.

image

7. Click the image button to start downloading and wait until all videos are finished donwloading. All done automatically without the need of any further interference on your behalf.

Happy Studying!!!
