Download & Convert Youtube/Google/FLV Videos As iPod iTunes, .MOV or .MP3 FilesSeveral 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 Vixy.net - 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.
