      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.?

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