Can one download a YouTube/flv file format...if yes than how?

Which software is ideally suited to convert a YouTube to an mp3 audio format & to mp4 etc video format?

Of course, there is many application to do that, like Youtube Downloader, this include format converter.

Also, a very good downloader is Imtoo Youtube Video Downloader, but not include format converter. In this case you need to download another application like, Quick Media Converter.

May I suggest you to try Format Factory as well. It's my best pick among video conversion tools.

L' arc........I agree totally....... it seems to be the most versatile, light, freeware conversion tool that I have yet seen. Shall take me a bit to get familiar.

Hi there,

How do you compare Format Factory to the softwares of http--www.effectmatrix.com-index.htm & http--www.save2pc.com- like Total Video Converter, E.M. Youtube Video Download Tool & SAVE2PC Ultimate, and SAVE2PC convertor?

It does seem to be very versatile. My reasons for asking is that I need a software to download Youtubes, convert files to audio /video format & transfer files to Nokia N8 running Symbian OS?

Does Format Factory has the ability to perform all these...…do realize I am new to these conversions?

Hoping to hear from you,

Regards!

Yes it can convert but not downloading.

Format Factory converts faster and is on-par with paid ones. Muxing, Splitting, no watermark on output, etc. I'll let your experience with it speak for me. :)

Hi L' arc,

One more question...SAVE2PC Ultimate performs both downloading & converting than would not need Format Factory or the quality of conversion of FF is far superior to Save2pc?? :-\

For this, I recommend:

Free for video download (YouTube only): Imtoo YouTube Video Downloader

Free Video Converter

Save2pc (before called YouTube Downloader) was recommended before. See my first reply. The Ultimate edition is not free. Do you want to purchase a software for this? (Downloading & Conversion)

Thanks Llanziel..........I know you recommended SAVE2PC in the first place........I downloaded & converted a FLV file to mp4 & mp3, using trial versions of SAVE2PC, Ideal Video Convertor Pro, ImTOO YouTube downloader & Format factory....got the best results using Ideal Video Convertor & Format Factory vs. ImTOO YouTube & Save2PC.

But ideal Video convertor freeware ED. has limitations.....so need to buy Ideal Video Convertor Pro?

Only drawback with FF is that cannot download but its conversion is as good as IVC Pro.

I played the converted file Nokia N series mp4 format & was good.

What does your experience say?
