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.

Alright, I've been using your browser conversion tool for a couple of days now and I'm beggining to notice some problems, first of all the downloads (The link given after conversion.) finish prematurely. I've had this happen on 3 computers so I know it's not me all of which had different versions of windows and all with different internet connections all of which are of the appropriate speed. Another problem I have noticed is that when successfully downloading it has worked fine on the computer but when syncronized to the Zune I've noticed some sort of skipping lag, colours mess up etc. the frames don't flow like they're suppose to as if playing the video and haveing a scene you just watched show up (translucently) behind the video currently playing. This has happened to 3 out of 17 of my downloads and all of them were from different submitters. Over all it's a great program and extremely useful. Thanks for making such a convienent tool and hopefully you'll find out what's wrong.                                                                            With Respect,Extra Terrestrial.

wait, so if you save the mp4 video in the "My Videos" folder on your computer, and open the zune software, it'll automaticly open it, and convert it to wmv?

No, that occurs during the sycronization of the MP4 to the Zune.

Problem
I downloaded it as MP4 for iPod/PSP (MPEG + ACC) {after it was done converting} and got an error when I tried to play it in the zune media player.


" Zune software encountered a problem while playing the file. "
Did I do something wrong??

The problem that I talked about earlier, the downloads finishing prematurely, is probably what you're running in to, for some reason when you begin the download, randomly, it finishes the download, all though all the material that was trying to be downloaded wasn't...It's strange and definetly beyond my level.

I had the same problem (error) when I downloaded the link just by clicking on it and then clicking save.

Instead I tried right clicking on the link and choosing the 'save link' option and it works fine now.

Everyone who is having problems, can you confirm your screen looks like this before you convert?


Also, don't press anything until the file is done, pressing a link or something could mess up the progress. Just let it go.

i use the same site but converting to mp4 for ipod psp degraded the quality significantly.  what i did was convert to avi using the web site then convert to wmv using the windows movie maker that comes with xp. the quality is much better.   just a tip if anyone would like to try it....

windows movie maker is in start, all programs, accessories, entertainment....

I like mediaconverter.org better it gives you options as to what video and audio formats, bitrates, and what not.  the only thing is if you dint sign up there's limits on how big a file can be and how many you can convert a day.
Oh you can also use it to convert files you already have on your computer.   Grin
