This is great, but just one question.  After I use the online site to download the youtube video, is there a good free program I can use to convert that into wmv?  I know the Zune does it automatically, but I'd rather have a permanent .wmv file, so I could burn it to a dvd and add it to my Zune later on, without having to get Zune to transcode it all over again.

If you converted it to .mp4, Zune software should recognize that and allow you to play it in the Zune software. And it should automatically convert it to .wmv for syncing to your Zune.

I've tried it and it synced okay. Can you confirm that you converted it to .mp4..?

I've tried this with several YouTube clips and it's downloaded the file and synced to my Zune.

Can you try again, and verify that:
 - you're setting the Convert To setting to be MP4 for iPod
 - the file is being saved in your My Videos folder on your PC

The Zune software should detect the video, and it will convert it to .wmv before syncing it to your player.
