Hi Guys,
Newbie to group here!
Salutations!

I am looking for a couple of App's to try to capture youtube and Google video's to my hard drive that I can port to iPod.

Hopefully you can spare a line or 2 of your exp of the app's goodness.. even a 1-10 scale of usefulness. 1=crap, 10 = phenomenal ..

Cheers from downunder,
Denis of Oz

You don't even need an app when your watching a video using safari go to Window>Activity> Go to the youtube drop down and look for the largest file and then double click it and it should download. Then go to the file in which it was downloaded (usually downloads folder) and rename to anything you want with an extension of .flv

What dbnoise and Toyman said above me are both easy ways to do it. If you want to use an app, TubeTV always worked well for me, but now I use the Safari thing because its just a bit easier.

the aforementioned ways are great ways of getting youtube videos, but i use a program called Tooble. It gets the video, encodes it in iPod format, and adds it to iTunes automatically. Might wanna check it out!...

For YouTube, you can use a Safari extention which puts a Download button on the YouTube page:
