How to Free Download YouTube Videos to iPod Nano
There are numerous websites that offer streaming videos. Among
them, YouTube is the most popular. Since iPod Nano doesn’t support
YouTube yet many people want to watch YouTube videos on iPod
Nano, the following guide details how to download online YouTube
videos to Apple iPod Nano.
1. Use free online FLV Converter to download YouTube to iPod Nano
2. Use free YouTube Downloader to download YouTube to iPod Nano
What you will need:
Vixy or ConvertTube (free online converter)
Clone2Go YouTube Download (freeware)
1. Use online FLV Converter to download YouTube to iPod
Vixy is a totally free online FLV converter. You can use it to
download online YouTube videos to:
It is very easy to use. Open http://vixy.net. Go to YouTube.com and
simply copy and paste the URL of the video you want to watch on
your iPod Nano to the URL box. Select the MP4 for iPod/PSP
(MPEG4 + AAC) profile from the "Converts to:" drop-down box as
shown above. Click "Start" and vixy will convert the YouTube video
to iPod Nano MP4 for you.
However, there are some drawbacks of this online FLV converter.
First, it converts only one YouTube video at a time. That's to say, it
doesn't support batch converting YouTube videos. Secondly, you
have to download the converted video after the conversion. So it
takes a very long time to eventually get the output video, especially
when you have a long list of URLs needed to be converted. Third,
errors like "URL resolve error" occur occasionally due to the heavy
load of this website.
Also, you can use ConvertTune, which is also an online YouTube
converter. Since it is based on the same principle as vixy, I don’t
intend to elaborate on it. Let’s take a look at its screenshot:
2. Use free YouTube Downloader to download YouTube to
In this part, you need Clone2Go Free YouTube Downloader to
get the YouTube videos downloaded to your iPod Nano.
You can download it from
http://www.clone2go.com/products/youtube.php and install it.
Click the "YouTube" button on the main interface. In the pop-up
window, copy and paste the URLs of the YouTube videos one by one.
There will be a list of the added YouTube videos, which will be
downloaded automatically one by one. And the downloading status
is clearly shown on the list. After the status of all of them indicates
"Completed", you can check the output folder to get the
downloaded YouTube video (.flv) files.
In this method, you still need to convert the downloaded YouTube
videos to the format iPod Nano accepts. There are lots of freeware
programs that can do the trick, such as Super, and then transfer
the video files in iPod Nano format to iPod Nano with the sync of
iTunes Library. Or, you can use Clone2Go DVD to iPod Converter,
which has already embedded in the function of downloading online
YouTube videos. You can read the tutorial about how to rip DVD,
