Part 1. Download YouTube video music to iPod with free online YouTube Converter

The first method is using a website to convert YouTube video to iPod for free, Of course, you can also convert other media videos.

This is good for you when you only have one or few files to convert or you can't install the programs necessary for conversion. My favorite is Zamzar converter. With this online YouTube downloader, you don't even need to download the video file to your computer.

Step 1 Enter the URL of the YouTube video you want to download to your iPod to the box.

Step 2 Choose the format you want to convert YouTube videos to (iPod accepts mp4 video. So choose the format 'mp4').

Step 3 Enter your email address and make sure you will get the converted YouTube file with this email, then click 'convert'. The output file will be sent to your mailbox after the conversion.


Another free online converter I like is media convert. But you can't convert big video files using free online converters. It is up to 100MB. And the quality of the output files is just so so.
