Whats the best way (ahem-Free way lol) to get youtube videos to itunes?
not really possible -- techincally you could use a screen cap program... but...
keepvid works well.....you need to download something called isquint and convert the file from a .flv to ipod / tv format. then use itunes to import away!
hope that helps
Tubesock. Costs $15 though. Works very well. Little slow, but does the job. Bit like myself.
4 apps to do it:
I use PodTube - it's free and has been error free for me
I discovered that Podtube created a directory folder within iTunes - which was handy - but I moved them into the 'movies' pre-designated folder (after the last iTunes update) - so I could utilise the preview and artwork features.
YouTube to iTunes
I use TubeTV (free) then put it into garageband, delete the video track, 'Share' with iTunes then just change info... a little long winded but hey, it works!
wow, so many responses. I download the video, using Safari, then convert it fo r iTunes.
This can be done the free way, or the roughly $20 way.
Free way: Download iSquint, drag and drop it, select "Add to iTunes", and hit convert.
Download Visual hub, pay for it, and use that. It does what iSquint does, and also has a lot more features that are often called upon by me or whoever else uses the program regularly.
Make sure your video is fully loaded. Then download the program iSquint. Then on the youtube page, go to the tab Window then select Activity. From there find the largest file possible, usually a few MB. Double click and it will be downloaded as "get_vid." It will be in your downloads folder. Open up iSquint and drag the "get_vid" to iSquint and start the conversion.
It doesn't have to be fully loaded. the loading you see is the buffering for the video player on the site. Double clicking the link in the Activity window opens a new window with a direct link to the video -- which then begins to download from the beginning regardless of how far along the youtube player has loaded.
I use Tooble, as it can interface with my account so I can see my favorites.
