Slik lagrer du Youtube-favorittene – VG Nett om Data og nett. (Norwegian)
I read this in Norway’s biggest (or second biggest (don’t know which)) newspaper some time ago. I have earlier saved youtube videos by using freeware like DVDvideoSoft to convert directly from youtube to iPod or other formats. But this seemed like a real easy solution. I don’t know how popular it is, but I had never heard of it before. The article is in *cough cough* Norwegian, but the synopsis is quite easy… 🙂
1. Find the URL / address for whatever youtube video you want to save
2. replace “youtube” in the address with “kickyoutube”.
3. Pick the format you want and save it.

vixy.net : Online FLV Converter : Download online videos direct to PC / iPod / PSP. It’s free.
This is one of the most excellent I have visited lately. It converts your youtube/google videos to a format that is playable on iPods, iPhones, mobiles etc. It even works, it’s free and it’s online! There’s a desktop version with ads, if you prefer that, and I guess that can be used for converting whatever you have on your harddrive as well.
Watching movies on your cell phone is a pretty nerdy and tedious task, if you ask me, still, I have done it now. And it sort of was ok to watch a movie on the train. I have also found, that there’s a lot of instructional videos to download and look at. Another good feature is to catch up on tv show watching. Right now I am working my way through Family Guy! I bought the DVD and converted with 3gp converter. Works as a charm.

It’s not all fun and games, but this one is bound to cheer you up! It’s a Norwegian skit, by sometimes funny and sort of celebrated comedians… I think they really nailed it on this one. Someone (I don’t know who) has put subtitles on this one for all you no-Norwegian-speakers out there (what? No habla Noruego?) to enjoy!
