Download & Convert Youtube/Google/FLV Videos As iPod iTunes, .MOV or .MP3 Files

Several days ago I blog about how to download Youtube/Google videos which are in FLV format. The solution works for one of my friends and then he posted another question to me on how could he download audio files from Youtube? Since I have no requirement of downloading audio files from Youtube, I have never ask myself this question or seek a solution to it until now.

So, while "googling" for a solution I learnt that there are tons of tricks that let you download flash videos from Youtube or Google videos in either FLV or AVI format. However, not many solutions are available to convert these videos or audios until I came across - a website that automates the whole process with a difference.

With Vixy, you can download Youtube videos directly as a Quicktime video or an audio-only file in MP3 format. Vixy is effective in extract the audio portion from the Youtube video for you too! Very cool! When you submit the url of the Youtube video, Vixy will download and convert the video format. Then you can download the converted file. Honestly, how cool is that?

And like Keepvid, you still have the option to download in the standard Windows AVI format with the DivX codec or the MP4 format for the video iPod. The choice is yours...

Apart from Youtube Videos, Vixy can help you covert any FLV file to AVI/MOV/MP4/MP3 format online. However, be mindful of the size of the videos you are converting as it could take more than 1 pot of coffee to complete the conversion process.

I would like to thank Philip Ang, for asking me this question. Philip, now you have the solution and many more people will benefit from this knowledge.

Making Optimum Choices in Life

I was asked by one of my business mentees I am currently mentoring, "How do I make the most optimum choice in life when I am bombarded with possibilities all the time?"Life is full of choices. This choice, that choice, both choice or none of the above. THAT's a whopping 4 choice!  Choice can open the door to a whole new possibilities, not only at cross-roads on our path in life, but in each moment, giving us access to the bountiful of possibilities with which we can paint our world any way we want it to be.  We can choose a new action, thought or feeling at any time, and create an entirely new reality as a result.  Every choice has an impact or consequence, to a greater or lesser extent, each one like a pebble dropped in a pond; the ripples, the ramifications, spreading out into your future and other areas of your life. Even one small choice made today that shifts your life by a minor degree can take you to an entirely different future than the one you are heading, opening …

The 4 Essentials of Effective Leadership

I read this article written Mark Raciappa, ActionCOACH and I totally agree. His communication is clear, concise and it resonated with me. Mark says;
I remember a bumper sticker: “Either Lead or Follow—But Get Out of the Way!”
Interestingly, in my company, I say something similar and it goes like this "If you can lead, lead. If you can't lead, follow. If you cannot lead or follow, get out of my way!
Mark continued to write that, when our role calls for the former, here are 4 important things to keep in mind:1. Great leaders communicate. Realizing that good communication is a 2-way street, we must be responsible for our part. That being said, true communication is the response that you get. Whatever form you choose (verbal, mail, e-mail, etc), if you don’t get the outcome you seek (from a “willing” recipient), the responsibility lies with the sender. Great leaders confirm, gain commitment, and solicit feedback to improve the process.2. Great leaders make decisions. Far too ofte…
