There many sites out there where we can watch our favorite videos. One of the examples is the website called youtube, which is very popular today. It shares a large number of videos which can be viewed online by any website visitors. Just type the desired keyword on the search box. You can also upload your own videos to it and start sharing it worldwide, if you are a subscriber to the site.
Youtube videos can be download using any youtube grabber application since videos from youtube cannot be download by just directly clicking on a download button. You need to have a grabber in order to download those videos and the format is .flv (flash video file). Or just look for a website that directly converts links of the videos you want. There are lots of websites there that converts files; it converts youtube videos into your desired format.
Mostly the extension of the downloaded video that comes from youtube is .flv (flash video) format that other media player does not support and besides you cannot download it directly without using an application tool. Because of these, lots of websites and applications are now available for converting videos into different extension and that is playable in any devices. It only takes a short while to convert your videos into different format.
You need to have the file to be converted or the link of the video you want to convert (i.e. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gISE-0j8zVw). This example is from youtube and as we know it is the best site for videos. You can also search some videos from the sites you know.
Now that you have your video, copy the link which can be found at your address bar. Look for an application that can convert it in any format. There are two ways in converting youtube videos, first is by using desktop application ? these can be obtain by searching the application on the web. It is more advantageous when you are going to convert one or more file at time. Second option is by using website ? conversion is done online and only few steps are to follow, but the biggest issue to this is, it only converts one file at a time which will take long hours for you if you are going to convert a number of videos.
In converting videos using websites, they have steps and procedure to follow just like any other. Only copy and paste the URL you have selected just like the example above on the exact field. Choose your format to use as an output of the file as they have more option for you to select. After that click Start or Convert and it will take a minute to complete. It will automatically prompt you that conversion is done and ask you to check your email for the direction on how to download the converted file into your computer.
It has been an issue that normally converting file using either of the two option has advantage and disadvantage and it will depend on you to which do you prefer to use.
When done converting, check your mailbox and read for the instruction on how to download the file into your computer. Download it by following the steps. You will need to check the file if it is properly converted or to ensure that it is not corrupted. Play the converted file onto any of your media player, from the start through the end. Note that quality of the video will depend on the video you are converting. If the video is not in a good quality choose another video to convert. If the video play as you have expected then you have successfully converted your first video otherwise try again or maybe there are some steps you forgot to follow or it is on the website you are using.
