    Are there any good programs for downloading (converting) youtube videos to touch? I know I can get youtube by wifi, but I would like to have some videos on my touch without having to go online.

    It depends on what format video you want.

    The regular Youtube sends FLV videos which are pretty low quality and not iPod compatible.

    the Youtube application on the Touch retrieves MP4 videos from google's video servers which are (of course) iPod compatible and a bit better quality.

    I cheated the system by running my own Squid proxy for HTTP requests - I also have a php script that parses the access.log from Squid and provides me a page with direct links to the MP4s I looked at previously with the iPod Touch. These get downloaded via Safari and dropped into iTunes.

    Here's an example of a direct link in Squid's access.log:
    Code:
    1191112042.912    210 192.168.1.2 TCP_MISS/206 365 GET http://vp.video.google.com/videodownload?version=0&secureurl=sAAAALxRpszUgTK_K_xaZ04iy5vlvENAx3C4tqI6MTR4hw_TFxVdqR-D86i0f4PFfUxdsA9ROGmiaSKF4FXCjHlB-JqYYv31-03O3VaOHfJkjgC-tvApa_WSCa8zFuN0JKi2B6VZWJP9kIyGXumJqSaApQa5ZwK9uxiIVWByNT2wEq7vaFy3nMUPZIqyUYbAOVzg7RDYe3Abq47_wFsSBpXy2uuSMnJwax4p5mXg0XN8oG-yDuELlJokPceCIzyd78vRpA&sigh=r32NG1l17MmtP-gAL1ZyYKOu_XY&begin=0&len=360000&docid=8413274325605565656 - DIRECT/72.14.209.176 video/mp4
    You have to parse the URL out of that - no big problems.
