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.
