Download & Convert Movies for iPod/ iPhone in a Few Steps

Picture of Download  & Convert Movies for iPod/ iPhone in a Few Steps
I'm a long time user, first time actual poster on, so I'm kind of new to this.  As my first Instructable I really wanted to post something that was easy to do, as well as useful to have.  However, as things sometimes go with me, I got distracted by the "BlagoBlag" and fifteen minutes later I was instead looking at downloading various cartoons on my iPod Touch.

That's when I decided, for my first Instructable, I will weigh in with my personal take on how to easily download and convert internet episodes, and various media on an iPod Touch and iPhone in just a couple of simple steps.

Step 1: Materials

This isn't really a step, but more of a preliminary check list. This should all be fairly obvious and very simple procedure. All you will need is:

1) Computer (with internet access, obviously)
2) iPod/iPhone (no need for explanation here)
3) iPod Touch/ iPhone connector cable

Step 2: Step 1: Download Videora Converter

As you might already know, not all types of video format files are playable on Apple mobile devices (iPod Touch, iPhone, iPad, etc).  Instead, these devices can only play video files that are in a .mp4 video format

When a video is not an mp4 file and is in other video formats (.wmv, .avi, .flv), I use a free downloadable program called Videora iPod Conveter, that can convert most every media video file into an iPod Touch/ iPhone readable mp4.  It's a free program and is one of the clearest and easiest video conversion programs I've encountered.  The program also comes packaged with an optional YouTube Downloader app, which is specifically for downloading and saving YouTube videos.  I highly suggest downloading that as well, for all of your YouTube conversions.

I hope you know that what you are doing is highly illegal. The converting process is legal, but even just watching those PIRATED shows/movies is illegal. There are very few websites that have legally posted movies/tv shows, and even those don't allow you to legally download the content. One of the few websites that lets you watch the content (and is completely legal) is They make a deal with the film/broadcasting company to show the movie/show for free, and Hulu pays them to. The way Hulu gets money is through ads. With those pirated sites, you may as well just walk into a local video store, and steal a movie. I suggest to anyone reading this instructable to not watch pirated content.

Meh, as much as I would like to stay here and debate with you the reasons why "illegal piracy" is completely subjective and the laws enforcing said "illegalities" are ill-defined, I'm too lazy so I won't. Besides, my main reason for posting this Instructable was just to show how one could download a video, ANY video, on your iPod or iPhone. But thanks for your comment.
It's actually pretty clear cut - if you didn't pay for it (buy, rent, watch the ads, get from a friend, etc.) then it's illegal (about 99.999999999999999999999% of the time)

lol, I hear you, I had vista and NOTHING used to work! Now I upgraded to windows 7 pro and my computer is faster than ever and I'm using 50% of the RAM versus 80-90% on vista
