How to Make YouTube Videos Your Zune Videos


Visitors: 233

Zune videos are probably the best kind to have. It boasts of large screen of the player as well as the awesome sound that it produces.

Subscriptions - One can also get free or monthly subscription videos from sites but what about all those amateur and funny videos that everybody has been watching on YouTube? There is no way to stream the videos directly on the Zune player but with the right tools and processes, you too can have the YouTube videos played on your Zune.

The Format

Remember that all Zune players play one of three formats: MOV, WMV (which is the Microsoft Windows standard codec), and MPEG4. YouTube videos are never on this format. In fact, YouTube videos are more likely to be in the 3GP format that is recorded by mobile devices from phones or in the FLV format that is actually Flash-based video.

This makes the video lighter and therefore easier to stream online. But the beauty of this is that the videos on YouTube can be ripped and therefore can be converted into Zune videos that can be used on the player.

What You Need

Online Connection - To get all these FLV videos, you will need access to YouTube and thus a computer and an Internet connection. You will then need software called YouTuber Video Downloader. Once installed, right click on the icon and then select the New Download option. You then add a new download by copying and pasting a link of your desired YouTube video into the box next to the word URL. Choose a folder where you would like to save the video and click OK.

Freeware Online - Now, the next thing you need is a freeware and this can also be downloaded for free online. This software can convert FLV files to MPEG4 and it can also convert many other types of formats. All you have to do is configure all the settings so that the output of the video will be MPEG4. Select the flash video that you downloaded from YouTube and drag it into the empty space in the software. Click the Encode button and just wait for the file to be converted.

Sync PC with Zune - Now, once you have the video converted, all you have to do is sync your Zune with your PC. Make sure that the new MPEG4 is in the folder where the Zune checks for videos. This is one of the best ways to get videos that you want from YouTube and if you can find videos from other sites in the FLV format and download them, you can go through the same conversion process to make them playable on your Zune. A simple sync of the converted files and you can enjoy your new Zune videos downloaded from YouTube!
