    Is is possible to take YouTube videos from the internet and put them on your iPod? If so, what programs / websites are needed? I cannot seem to find one that works on a mac..... :apple:

    You can download Youtube videos from the Activity Monitor in Safari then use iSquint to convert them to an iPod codec.

    I was going to say if you have Firefox use the flash video download extension, continue with iSquint as it is godlike.

    I downloaded iSquint, seems pretty cool. When I have the YouTube video that I want to put on the iPod, how do I save it to the computer using Safari so that I can then convert it using iSquint?

    Tubesock is your best alternative, however it isnt free. It downloads and converts all in 1 step, you just copy and paste the video URL into the app.

    In Safari you go to Window then Activity Monitor and try to find the video there.

    Can you explain this? Im just curious what you are talking about because Activity Monitor to my knowledge has nothing to do with downloading anything.

    Yea, I thought it was confusing at first but then I found it. In Safari you go to Window and then Activity and then you find it that way. You're not finding it in the Activity Monitor feature.

    Thanks Highcroft for explaining it to me. I would have been searching and googling things for hours. haha. :apple:

    Clicking Window and then Activity, you need to find the file and then double click it.

    There's a website that has a downloadable app called Tooble: http://www.tooble.tv

    Great app. All you have to do is copy the link from YouTube and paste it into the app and it'll download it for you!
