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
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
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.
Step 3: Step 2: Download Your Video File
It all depends on what specific video file you are searching for. If, for instance, you are trying to find the latest episode of Comedy Central's Futurama, I'd suggest trying to find it on zShare.net For High Quality movies, I suggest downloading them from Stagevu.com. Still, for all encompassing downloaded videos, I suggest trying to find it on MegaUpload.com, which is a great place for searching for movies/ tv shows. However, they do not provide you with a search engine for browsing videos, so to search MegaUpload, go to 4megaupload.com
Step 4: Step 3: Convert Your Video
If this is your first time using Videora, you will be asked to specify which type of iPod/iPhone you have. It doesn't really matter which one you choose, they will all be in mp4 format. For me, I just chose iPod Touch 3rd Gen.
First, Open up the Videora iPod Touch Converter program, and at the top left corner select "Convert". Next, right under Convert there should be a toolbar that says Progress, Video File, Downloads and Console and select "Video File". Next in Select Mode, select Normal Mode, for the easiest and simplest conversion process. After that it's pretty simple, you will be asked to specify an output folder, check Video Settings, and name your Video File. Unless you want to rename your video, just keep hitting Next until you reach a button called "Start Converting".
Your video is converting now! Now, depending on the length of your video, the process may take anywhere between 2 minutes to 2 hours. To view your conversion progress, just select View Conversion Progress. When it finishes, iTunes should open up automatically.
Step 5: Finally, Import Your Video!
So there you go, how to download and save movies from the internet onto your Apple Device! I hope this helps!
