Sometimes you see a video on YouTube, and you want it on your iPod. I did, and couldn't figure it out, but then I did, so I decided to share it with the internet. This guide only applies to YouTube if you use the same downloading software as me, but if you want to download RealPlayer instead, it works for any video on the World Wide Web.
   Do not blame me if you get arrested or sued or anything like that. I do not believe this is illegal but it may be copyright infringment. But honestly, who cares anyway?

Step 1: Get a Download Program

   The program of choice for me is DVDVideoSoft Free Studio. You can download it at the following site: www.dvdvideosoft.com/free-dvd-video-software.htm. It is totally free and has many functions, including downloading and uploading YouTube videos, converting to MP3, converting to Apple iPod format, ripping and burning CDs, etc. If you do any iPod editing or CD ripping, it is a good program to use. And it's totally free.
   An alternitive is to download RealPlayer SP. Try some other site for this, as I will keep on doing it my way, and do not plan on using Real anytime soon.
<p>Except this method, i think you can use a converting software to rip the video such as YouTube video to mp4. mov or other popular formats, you can get more knowledge from here: www.icoolsoft.com/youtube-video-converter/</p>
<p>There're actually many ways to download videos to MOV so as to import them into iPod. You could look for Flvto.biz which provides free service for downloading clips from YouTube or other sites. It also lets users export videos to MOV, AVI, MP4 and more, getting compatible formats for your portable players.

<p>You can use total video downloader to <a href="http://www.etinysoft.com/support/how-to-download-youtube-videos-mac.html" rel="nofollow">download YouTube videos to your Mac</a> .</p>
Without written permission from the poster of the owner of the content on youtube, it is illegal to download those movies. Have fun in prison!
guess what, i downloaded my own movies to show you.
Ok, then i'm not mad at you. I'm angry at the guys who are all smug with there illegal content, and who aren't in jail yet. Hasn't anyone read those &quot;fbi warnings&quot; at the beginning of movies?
&nbsp;nice ible, very very well done, &nbsp;but i jailbroke my iphone so i hazzez free movies already :-) 5 stars btw
&nbsp;Thanks fr the comment &amp; rating. Free videos from where? iTunes?
<p>after jailbreaking i get for free:<br /> every app<br /> every tv show<br /> every movie (including ones not even in theaters)<br /> any song<br /> <br /> AND&nbsp;MUCH&nbsp;MORE</p>
Also, you get a nice visit from the police, throwing you in jail for pirated content. Jailbreaking is not illegal, but downloading pirated content is. I hope you go to jail for a VERY long time. BTW, you could just walk into a store and steal the content (cd, dvd, whatever), since it would be less traceable. Have fun is prison!
&nbsp;jailbreaking has nothing to do with getting free tv shows/movies/songs.<br /> even if you&nbsp;weren't&nbsp;jailbroken you could still get them for free.
&nbsp;what????? on my iphone?? what are u talking about.....?
Nice try 15 points for this intrucatable but on a itouch/iphone you could just download mxtube/yourtube with source <a href="http://www.sinfuliphone.com" rel="nofollow">www.sinfuliphone.com</a> thru cydia nice try though
