Aiight, so a couple people have asked me... "HOW THE HELL DID U GETZ THOSE MOVIES ON YOUR I-Pod?!!!" so, I might as well tell all of you. For it to go on your iPod, however, your iPod needs to be able to store video. To download your favorite youtube video, simply follow these steps:

1. Download Mozilla Firefox
http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/landing/better/?utm_content=0705features&utm_source=google&utm_medium=ppc&utm_campaign=0507lndgpgtest&gclid=CI2WyYKepJICFRwqagodSSNbQw
It's absolutely free and convenient.

2. Get the Download Helper add-on.

Click on Add-ons in the blue header. Then, type in the Search bar: Download Helper.

It should take you to this. Choose the first one.

After clicking, scroll down and you'll see the install button. Click on that.

3. Go to a video source. Example: Youtube, break etc.

Click on the the dropbar icon in the top-right hand corner of the screen and choose the .FLV file. DO NOT CHOOSE THE OTHER ONES (YOUTUBE-blablabla) You also need to be on Firefox for this to work. NOT IE.

From there, simply choose where to download. If you want it on your i-Pod, though, you need a converter. What I use is:

4. http://www.dvdvideosoft.com/products/dvd/Free-YouTube-to-iPod-Converter.htm or you can use any other site. This site is free AND it doesn't imprint on your video. Many other free products imprint their logo on the video. Follow the steps provided.

Last, but not least...
5. Go to iTunes and go to File ==> Import and choose the MPEG/mp4 file, NOT THE .FLV file.

If you need any more assistance, I'll be free to help you.

You're converting a movie into a mp3?!!!Wtf? Do you mean mp4? Or are you seriously trying to convert a multimedia file to an audio file?


sorry bout that. If you're converting to an mp3, then stop immediately. Find one that goes to mp4/MPeG/M4V

maybe he's just trying to rip the audio from the video, and technically it is converting the video to mp3, it just rerenders it, but only renders the audio. I have a proggy on my laptop i use for that but cant remember what its called.

If you're extracting the audio, then it's going to take a long time if the program you are using is browser based. If you're trying to get a video onto your iPod or just on your desktop, then you should convert to mp4.

If you're converting to mp4 it should take 10-30 seconds. 22 minutes is a long time compared to that... lol xP
