HI JellyWoo, thanks so much for sharing the ideas.

It is totally free but would take a lot of time to download and convert youtube videos to our needed format. For me, I am using this WVCU: http://mp3.about.com/od/Audio-Editors-And-Converters/fl/Wondershare-Video-Converter-Ultimate-Review.htm, it saves a lot of time.

Thankyou for this - both the link and the instructable which convinced me to give zamzar a try.

I had used several different programs to do the conversion and none had worked properly - or if they did they were painful to use. Zamzar worked perfectly.

If you guys like messing around i sugjest you hack your ipod with ipod wizard. ipod wizard can change the background picture to anyone of your photos but you need to resize them. look on youtube, thats how i found how to hack my ipod.

i'd rather use vixy, though i downloaded the beta version but i scanned it for virus
and it was clear. And giving your e-mail to random websites is not really the smartest thing to do =P

Zamzar! I used zamzar before i saw this and im like only crap someone posted a zamzar instructable. I don't use it any more because i found out about a addon for firefox that directly downloads youtube videos to your desktop, you have to use ipod videora converter if you want it to be in itunes. If you don't want to download software i recommend this to all, but if you don't mind software get the fast video downloader addon for firefox, and get videora which you can also use to convert movies to itunes.
