    Have any of you used sites like these to download Youtube video to put on your ipod?

    http://www.techcrunch.com/get-youtube-movie/

    http://keepvid.com/

    http://www.savevideodownload.com/

    I have an iPhone so I have Youtube on it, but the quality over edge is so crappy that I want to download the videos, convert them and put them on the phone.

    I am still (for the next 1.5 months) on a PC so obviously I am worried about viruses, or I would just try out the sites.

    Are there any other ways to do this?

    Please help!

    I was thinking about this today actually....it would be nice if the iPhone could save youtube videos, not download them so you can put them on your computer, but just in the cache. When you have finished watching a youtube video there is a button saying "Save in Cache". You should only be able to save a certain amount but it would be great for those conversations where you say "Oh, I was watching this great youtube video last night.....".

    you can download directly to your ipod touch/iphone if you jailbreak and use mxtube. (can find it in the installer.)

    if you have a mac you can use tubeTV for downloading youtube and converting to ipod format.

    not sure if there is a windows equivalent of tube tv, but its an awesome app.

    I'm on a mac now, and use tube tv. I used one a site like that when I had a pc, and they worked. They were a bit slow, and the download didn't always work, but I'd trust it.

    if you ever get a mac think about iSquint, a great little program for changing the files to MP4.
