Free YouTube to iPod Converter is a simple and easy-to-use software solution that combines video downloading and conversion to allow you to grab your favorite videos from YouTube.com – the popular online video website – and transform them into formats that your iPod, PSP, BlackBerry, and other similar portable devices can play.
Free YouTube to iPod Converter offers you a really intuitive and easy-to-understand interface where you can complete the whole process, from pasting the YouTube URL of your desired video to getting the video file ready to be copied to your favorite device, all in just a few clicks. There is a big area where you can paste your previously copied URL. The program will automatically analyze it and will add it to the download list, displaying some information about it, such as the video title and its duration. It supports batch processing, meaning that you can enqueue several videos, which will be downloaded and converted one at a time.
It also provides you with buttons that will paste the URL directly on your clipboard, and that will remove the selected video(s) from the list. The next section allows you to select the destination folder and the filename. You are allowed to automate the filename generation on a separate window – here you can define a prefix and a postfix, include the original YouTube video title and date, and select a separator character. You will be given a preview of the resulting name.
Finally, you can select the output device among iPod, iPhone, Apple TV, PSP, BlackBerry, MP4, 3GP and MP3, as well as the desired level of quality from a list that varies depending on the format you selected on the previous list for that specific device – typically, somewhere between High and Normal quality. The MP3 format, of course, allows you to extract the audio of your chosen YouTube video. The "Download" button permits you to launch the whole process.
The download and conversion processes are relatively fast, and the program allows you to select the task priority. The converted files are generated exactly as expected. Undoubtedly, this is a great software tool.
