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.
