Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet
So basically if you want to get a YouTube video onto your iPod, you
should know the video format that your ipod can read. iPod plays videos
only a handful of video formats, none of which are overly common for
standard sized videos (.mov, MPEG-4). Most torrents are AVI videos, and
it would be easy to lose the HD quality of a Blue-Ray when converting to
MP4 format or other accepted formats.
If downloading YouTube videos, FLV is the format of choice-which does not play on iPod unless directly connected to YouTube.
So you need to you find out some way to convert video you download if you ipod can not read this video and then put it to your iPod.
As with everything on the Internet, there are like 10 different ways to do this! You can either download a YouTube video as an FLV file and then convert the FLV to MP4 through by the converter software. Or you can use some free online tools to do the whole thing for you!
I tried many ways to do that. By far the easiest way to do this is using a ipod touch video converter software to put youtobe video into ipod.
Here I will show you how to put youtube video to ipod.
Step 1: After the download finished. Install iPod touch video converter and run this software. If you want to run this software on your Mac just download DVD to iPod touch Converter for Mac.
Step 2: When you come into the main interface, you can note two menu bottoms with 'video to ipod' and 'dvd to ipod'. Just click 'video to ipod'
Step 3: Click the 'Open file' to import the video you want to convert and Click 'Output' to set up the file you want to put the video after conversion. When you finish this setting,click 'Convert' to start converting video to iPod MP4 or H264 files.
Note: Before converting, you can click 'Advance -> Video settings' to set 'Video format', 'Resolution', 'Framerate', 'Output Quality'. If you'd like to convert video to H264 files, please set 'Video format' to 'H.264 FQ Variable Bitrate'. 'MPEG4(.mp4) FQ Variable Bitrate' is the default value. Certainly, you can also set 'Audio Bitrate', 'Channels', 'Sample Rate' and 'Volume' in 'Audio Settings' page.
Step 4: When the conversion completed. Transfer the iPod videos to iTunes by draging or clicking "File -> Add File to Library". Now, you can enjoy them on iTunes. Then hit "File -> Update iPod" to sync to your iPod.
