As part of my checking the National Library of Australia music score collection (see my reply to Alfor's Iris de Cairos Rego postings in the Women Composers area (viewtopic.php?f=11&t=201&start=140#p28583), I found that the NLA has put out an iPad app called 'Forte' which accesses their entire and extensive collection of sheet music. Not all, of course are by Australian composers, but there is a great deal of good stuff to be had.

'Forte' is available free from the iTunes store.

I tried very hard to find a suitable place to put this question......

Youtube-SCORES

How to, if ever possible, to print scores from Youtube.
I am referring to those with scores, for example, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uCIkwyAXzag
(I do not need this one, we had uploaded it sometimes ago).

Any computer expert can help??

Thanks.

In Windows 10, what I do is this:-

1. Open YouTube video and start to play it.
2. Press 'Pause' during first visible page of music.
3. Press 'Gear' button at bottom right of YT screen.
4. Select highest quality resolution (1080p).
5. Press keyboard's 'Print Screen' key (may require 'Shift' key also).
6. Minimise YouTube screen.
7. Open 'Paint'.
8. Select 'Paste'.
9. Select 'Select' and box the area showing just the music.
10. Select 'Crop'.
11. Select 'Save as'.
12. Give saved image an appropriate filename.

Repeat the above process for every page of music shown in the YT video.
Previous versions of Windows may require slightly different operations in
'Paint', but they'll be broadly similar.

Finally, compile a pdf from the saved (and maybe cleaned up) set of images,
using Irfanview 64.

The Bodlian Library in Oxford has finally entered the 21st. century!
However, their images of sheet music seem to be very small.
Does anyone please know how to access them properly please?

Thank you Fred. Let's hope beta soon becomes alpha!

Btw, apologies for spelling Bodleian incorrectly and saying please twice.

I'm not sure how long this has been online, but the National Library and Archives of Quebec has quite a few scores (just over 3000 at this writing) available for download: piano, vocal, choral, etc. A lot of it is probably available elsewhere, but I haven't had a chance to fully explore it as of yet. There are quite a few Canadian composers and publishers represented. Here's a good starting link:

http://numerique.banq.qc.ca

In the dropdown use Quebec heritage/Musical scores then either leave the search box blank to see all or enter a term to find something specific and hit the magnifying glass. Some items have a padlock icon and are only available for viewing onsite. Enjoy.

using Irfanview 64.
My recipe was
1. Download the video from YouTube as mp4 (many method, but jdownloader is a reliable free option)
2. Open the video using VLC app (available on all platforms, freeware)
3. Use its frame export (Video > Take Snapshot) for each page
4. To assemble the exported images, either:
a. Use Windows Print to bulk print them all into a single PDF
b. Paste them all into a Word doc, and save that as a PDF
c. Drop them into "Not another PDF Scanner 2" app (freeware) and export as PDF.

Sometimes I just reset it directly in Musescore.
