    Wherever I lay my hat is my home.
    I had a client call the local news station right after a "call to action" type of story where some little old lady got screwed-over by some competitor of my client.

    They hooked him up with this lady where he fixed her issue for free and they did a follow-up story(great publicity!)

    Now I am trying to figure out the best way to download, edit and re-up to Youtube and his website.

    It is a Fox affiliate station and they are not making it easy to download the video (even after he asked them about it) and you cannot post a direct link to their page as a video on G-Places.

    Can someone please help me with this issue?

    Thanks!

    Can you replay it on your computer?

    If so, Camtasia + replay.

    As someone who works for a TV station and spends way to many hours looking for this kind of thing (not that I want to... it's part of my job) I'll throw my two cents in.

    If we find our video on You Tube we normally just make a claim against it for ownership and then our ads get slapped on it. However, if it is edited in ANY form we file DMCA. If we find it on a website (not you tube embedded) without permission its an automatic DMCA.

    As I stated, I don't necessarily agree with what we do, but it is standard procedure with most American TV stations. If your client is a legitimate business, I doubt they will want to deal with the hassle of being slapped with a DMCA (and also the secondary effect of never being requested to help on a Call to Action or the like again).

    If the station continues to refuse to provide you with an authorized clip, the safest thing to do is to link to the video on the TV station's website or post a brief text summary or press release of your client's good deed.
