With my Dopod 838 Pro now able to watch mpeg four video’s. I am able to take advantage of downloading and watching Youtube videos. I thought originally of downloading/purchasing software, but after a quick Google search I found Convertube. Its free, and I don’t download that many Youtube video’s. But for the odd occasional Youtube video, it does its job. I could register for $4.99US a month if I am using the website on the regular basis.
I have recently found dedicated software that can reside upon mac os x and windows xp. These software also convert the .flv youtube format to any format I require.
