      I know there are sites that do this but I was wondering if there is any software you can DL to maybe speed up the process. A batch ability would be perfect but lets not get too crazy. See I have no issue with using the websites that do this, but then its usually another program on the laptop that I need to use to convert the format to something that my phone will read. I haven't done it in a while, maybe the sites now allow you to change the filetype or convert on the fly as its downloading. Also my phone runs Android so there are a bunch of video apps that will play just about any file you can throw at it. Hell the built in video player plays just about everything I tried so far, its really good.

      The one type of file in particular would be to convert whatever YT uses to MP3. Ive done this for music that I couldn't find anywhere else, its great because I don't care about the video most of the time anyway, or its just the lyrics or nothing shown or I have the phone in my pocket, so why waste the battery life keeping the screen illuminated when Im not watching anyway...So.

      anything you recommend.?
      When I was little, my father was famous, He was the greatest samurai in the empire, And he was the Shogun's decapitator, He cut off the heads of a hundred and thirty-one lords, It was a bad time for the empire, The Shogun just stayed inside his castle and he never came out, People said his brain was infected by devils, My father would come home he would forget about the killings, He wasn't scared of the Shogun, but the Shogun was scared of him

      I don't think anybody mentioned this yet- but there is a Firefox extension that allows this.
