3 steps to convert YouTube video to any format directly

Post by stanley » Thu Mar 06, 2008 6:00 am

There are several things you need to make sure.

1. You have installed/upgrade to MediaCoder 0.6.1.4068 or later
2. You know how to set-up all the parameters of MediaCoder. At least you know how to convert a video file on your HDD to your desired format with MediaCoder. If not, please leave all the settings default (to make sure choose Revert All Settings in File menu).
3. You have a reasonably fast Internet connection if you want a good conversion speed, because the streaming and conversion/transcoding are done simultaneity (the flv file is not downloaded to your HDD), the bottleneck of the performance is usually the network speed.

Now let's start.

Step 1: Get the URL of the YouTube web page containing the video you like.

Step 2: Start MediaCoder, click Add button, choose Add URL and enter/paste the URL in the "Add URL" dialog box.

Step 3: Make the correct transcoding settings (be sure to specify an output folder) and click the Start button. If there is nothing wrong, the YouTube video will start to be converted.

And that's all. After the conversion is done, you should be able to find the converted video in the output folder you specify.

Hoping you will enjoy this. You can also convert audio only with video disabled in MediaCoder. This should also work for videos on Google Video, MySpace and tudou.com. Please note that this cool feature is still experimental and it is possibly that you can encounter problems. Please send you feedbacks so I can improve.

Does your internet connection require proxy?
