I tried to watch Help! using the link on the first page, like I did with AHDN, but it won't work because of copyright infringement. I should have watched it while I was able to. Oh, well. Does anybody know how I can watch it legally?

This works in UK, while it is up. If you can download it would recommend. There's a good YouTube downloader (free version available that I use) called YTD Video Downloader. Hope this link works, and that I don't get in too much trouble since the film's about to pop here:

I don't think YouTube downloaders are legal..

There is nothing illegal about downloading video material that is not copyrighted, it is only copyrighted material that people need ask themselves a question about. We all deal with that in our own way.

Isn't Help! copyrighted? I guess it doesn't really matter; I only said that because she asked for a legal way to watch it.

Everything on YouTube is copyrighted unless the person or company who shot it/produced it specifically gave their rights away in writing, or the copyright has since run out. Help! is a copyrighted movie. So, no, unless you paid for it, it's not a legal download.

Check out my fan video for Paul's song "Appreciate" at Vimeo or YouTube.

Isn't this turning into the old argument about home-taping?

No.

Whether or not you can get away with downloading is a different question from whether or not it's legal. Downloading Help! from YouTube no more legal than downloading Beatles mp3's from unauthorized sources. You want to do it, that's on you, but someone asked for a legal source, and YouTube is not it (save for the paid downloads they've begun to make available). I know people like to labor under the impression that everything on the internet is "public domain," but it's not.

Parlance, Egroeg said that she had tried watching it using the YouTube link on the first page of this thread, and that that link had been disabled, therefore - it seems to me happy to watch it on YouTube - so I provided the current link. I also pointed out a way to download from YouTube. A program that is supported by YouTube. Should you be saying that you have never watched anything on YouTube by a recognised artist that is not on their official channel I take off my hat to you, because you type in the phrase "The Beatles" and virtually everything that comes up is questionable. I would say there is little difference between watching something you know doesn't have the artists permission to be there or downloading it. Maybe all this will get me a telling off from Joe, but then there have been lots of conversations on here about the isolated tracks and places to look and what to do when you have them. It is interesting how The Beatles seem happy to leave so much unreleased material available on YouTube, yet are quite quick to pull released material. I would always buy an official version where available, but that doesn't stop me grabbing every Get Back outtake I can lay my hands on. Like I say, if you've never listened to any unreleased, or a had a friend do you a copy of something you don't have, insisting that you won't listen until it's released or you can afford it, hats off to you. I wish I was so moral.

My favorite movie definatly has to be Help! I just loved the James Bond - related aspect, the story plt, comedy, and the house of The Beatles. That was the best set in the film.

Second favorite Yellow Submarine

Third: Magical Mystery Tour

I haven't watched A Hard Day's Night or Let It Be, but i assume I would like AHDN better.

And if you saw my love, I'll love her to.

I've seen all of them, so here's how I see it:

1. A Hard Day's Night - It captures Beatlemania at its best

2. Yellow Submarine - Wonderfully subversive, and encapsulates psychedelia at its finest

3. Magical Mystery Tour - Not a great narrative, but exists as an excellent video collection from 1967

4. Help! - A vanity piece with lots to love

5. Let It Be - A depressing look at a band falling apart.  There are a few great moments, but not a good experience altogether.

E is for 'Ergent'.

That would be my exact order except I'd flip MMT and YS. Funny enough, last week I loaded all 5 on to my iPad and I've been going through them in order because it's been probably 10 years since I watched any of them all the way through. I'm on MMT now.
