Download & convert YouTube videos for iPod
Learn how to download videos from YouTube and convert them for iPod on Mac
Recently I was just wondering how do I download videos from youtube to my computer so I can play them on my iPod? Finally I found a free YouTube downloader tool called Free YouTube Downloader for Mac. This software is a totally free application for Mac OS X that accomplishes this task quickly and easily.
After YouTube videos have been downloaded with Free YouTube Downloader, then use the iFunia iPod Video Converter for Mac to convert the YouTube videos to iPod compatible video formats for playback on your iPod.
Things you'll need:
Step 1: Download, install & run Free YouTube Downloader for Mac
Provided that you've already download these two programs: Free YouTube Downloader for Mac & iFunia iPod Video Converter for Mac. Next step is to install the program. Now run iFunia free YouTube video downloader on your Mac.
Step 2: Add YouTube video URLs to download
When you find some videos funny and you'd like to download and save to your hard disk, just copy the video URL on the address bar of the browser and paste it into iFunia Free YouTube video downloader window. You're able to add multiple YouTube video URLs as many as you want.
Step 3: Run iFunia iPod Video Converter for Mac and add YouTube FLV video files
Now run iFunia iPod Video Converter on your Mac and click the big button "Add..." to add YouTube FLV video files, you may add as many YouTube videos as you want to convert to iPod MP4 video.
Only the titles you checked will be converted. So if there're some YouTube FLV videos you don't want to convert, you need to uncheck them or 'Remove' them from the right-click menu. 'Clear' in the right-click menu means remove all titles in the list.
Step 4: Set the output MP4 video format for iPod
There are almost all common iPod video formats available for you to choose to convert to. Here I set the output format to 'iPod Video2(640*480) MPEG4 Normal Video (*.mp4)' and the audio codec as default. Remember that the output file size mostly depends on the Bitrate you set. Larger Bitrate, larger file size.
Step 5: Start converting YouTube FLV video to iPod MP4 file
Now you may click the big button "Start" to begin converting YouTube FLV videos to iPod MP4 video file. Once the convert is complete, iFunia iPod Video Converter for Mac will place a new version of your video on the desktop (depends on the output folder setting). Double-click the new MP4 video file and play it to make sure it looks as you expect and sync videos to your iPod.
