downloads you will need

Mediastore FLV Player (optional)

Free video to ipod converter (Manditory)

if typing in link do not include[]

Step 1: Download Video

Go to youtube and go to the movie you want to download go to the address bar and copy that link then go to www.videodownloadx.com which is a free online service which allows you to download youtube videos by pasting that link into the download bar then close the ad that will appear. Then look down below for a loading sign or a picture of the video then click download. I would download it to the desktop.Then the download will start.

Step 2: Rename

ok so when your download finishes you will have this thing called get_video or something. anyway rename it to be whatever you want and make sure you put.flv after the name so (e.g. xxxxxx.flv)

Step 3: Convert

Now this is where that free video to ipod converter comes in handy.Open it up and click input file, then click on your video and then simply click convert, then there it is, on the desktop you will find the video in mpeg4 format.if you click on it quicktime should open up and it should play your video. and if you keep that flv video you can play it with the mediastore flv player program simply by dragging and dropping the video on it.

Step 4: Actually Putting It on the Ipod

If you have it (probablly) open itunes and go to File>import and then look for that video in the mpeg4 format, click on it then it should be imported into itunes and then drag and drop the file into your ipod.

Step 5: And Your Finished

Thanks for looking! Please comment after you've read it and tell me what you think!

    it is legal because when you agree to youtubes policy you give up your rights to copyright so now the public domain can copy it.

    No, it is perfectly legal i've downloaded many youtube videos. it's safe.

    but you could get music videos and add them to your ipod when they are usually $2.00 (on itunes) so wouldnt that be illegal?

    ya it's still legal unless you go to a huge movie theaterand play it (basically it's ok for personal use)

    it is legal as long as you dont download enything copywrighted if you do its infingement but noone cares anyway

    But iTunes is missing a lot of videos, too, so...

    how come this worked the first time I tried it , but won't work now? I just get a pop-up that tells me my video is unrecognized....

    Yeah!! It worked!! Thank you, thank you, thank you! I'm an oldster, not a techie, new to all this, and yet I could make this work! You rock!

    thx man you rock too

    if you go to vixy.net they have a coverter that you can download. it's a one step conversion process and takes about 15 seconds a video. it seems much simpler than this one.

    I tried that, and it did not work. That's why I'm here.

    what don't you get?
