Hi, I'm Ashik. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply ASAP

Weblocs are shortcuts to websites. That means the videos are not downloaded to your Mac, instead you just made a shortcut on your Mac to those videos websites. How exactly did you save them to your Mac ?

Hi ashik
the way I did it was to play the video and then click bookmarks and then add to bookmark I Then dragged and dropped them on to the flash drive

Hi, That won't work because what you copied to flash drive was just a shortcut to the video website. You need to actually download the videos to your Mac.

Most of the videos from well known websites (like Youtube) can be downloaded to your Mac using this website -->

Can you tell me from which website are you trying to download the videos from ?

Can you download those videos using this website -->

Go to

Paste the link of website in and it will load the video. Click Next arrow button and this will load different version of Quality of video. Right click on quality you want and click Save link as and this will allow you to download teh videos
