How To Download YouTube Videos

Summer is almost here as schools are starting to close, and that means people going to camp, beaches, vacations you name it; We are all on the go. Many of us take our iPods because we can’t live 1 minute without it, but what about all the videos on YouTube that we watch for enjoyment; how can I get that on to my iPod for me to take on the go? Click the “More” button for the answer.

YouTube videos onto your iPod or other video playing device= one simple FREE download: the YouTube Downloader. Just follow the steps below.

  • Download the YouTube Downloader here. (Don’t worry bout viruses btw, for one, I use it and my PC is fine, and, if that isn’t enough for you, 1 million+ people downloaded it too.)
  • Go to YouTube and go to the video you want to download
  • Copy the site address (URL) from the top of the web browser (where it says….)
  • Paste the site address and make sure the circle “download video from YouTube” is checked.

  • Select the spot you want to save to a place you’ll remember like the Desktop, for example).
  • Click the circle “Convert Video {previously downloaded} from file” and from the list, click which file type you wish (video designed for cell phone, iPod, iPhone/iPod Touch, just sound)
  • Delete the original file so you don’t have confusion with the two now different files (old is saved .FLV)
  • Add file to iTunes by going to the Add File to Library under File
  • Go to your converted file (saved where other file was saved)
  • Add file to iPod/ iPhone

    Interesting – but you can do it with your Real Media player too. You can activate the download bar for any video & define a folder to store the download YouTube videos.
