I'm sure most people will laugh at this, but it's how I have done it! Take a line out from your computer to a sterio unit with a tape player. Plug into the aux in or what ever works for you. Then tape it (record). Then from your headphone jack on the sterio unit play it back into your computer, and down load it, using any of the recording software, I think windows has one. Turn it back into an mp3 - and there you go!!! Hey - stop laughing - that's what I do!!!

Tim... Are you looking to download the video or just the audio to your iPod ?

I use Audacity to record all kinds of audio, and then create MP3 files via Audacity exporting. I use Audacity (available for free download) for lots of harp-related stuff, like extracting solo's and bits and pieces, and also for slowing down and changing pitches.

I ain't got a clue about videos, since my iPod is an older version that does not support videos.

Hey Schaef - that sounds way easier than my way - well, I said don't laugh - probably would have had more credability if I spelled stereo correctly.

I use a program called "Any Video Converter" for just this purpose. Download it for free from CNET.

You can also record sound files directly off the web. Just connect a wire from your computer's headphone jack to the mic input and record with Audacity. Simple!

Hey Tim,
go download this program, it's free

I use it all the time to put Adam Gussow lessons and Jason Ricci's lessons on my iPod.

Jaybird... If you set Audacity to "Stereo Mix', you should be able to record directly without connecting anything to the mic input. At least that's how I do it on my laptop.

The other Audacity settings are "CD Audio" and "Microphone".

I'm currently using version 1.3.5

1) Copy the URL of the YT you want to convert.
2) Go to
3) Paste the URL in.
4) Tell it what kind of file you want to get back
5) Wait until it tells you it's done--and download
the new file format to your drive.

No Brainer--free--works great. . .

I use a program called tubesucker, it is free. You search You tube from it's desk top and can down load for free and convert to loads of different media types.
The files are clear and not to big.

Have used it for months and had no problems

Just another online option to add to the list. I use very straightforward. Most YT clips can be downloaded directly as mp4 for dropping straight into iTunes. If you only have the .flv option, you can download a free converter from the site too.
