    I have hit quite a few dead ends looking for sites which convert a youtube link to an alternate format for offline viewing.
    To clarify the site must:
    1) ask for a url (youtube)
    2) convert the video to some alternate format (i.e., NOT just a script to retrieve the flv file.
    3) produce a link for you to download the resultant file (preferably the user should NOT have to provide their email)
    4) be free.
    5) be popup free
    (tall order?)

    I searched here and found more dead ends (maybe I didn't look hard enough?)

    Can people post their favourite websites that do this.
    I just tried zamar.com but it has two knocks - popups and requests your email address. It did a nice job of converting flv to avi (mpeg 1 according to avicodec) though.

    Exactly what I wanted! But I cannot seem to get anything to convert at the moment. An error suggesting that youtube might be down (it isn't). I used one of my own videos then the sample one suggested on the vixy.net itself http://youtube.com/watch?v=J7JmsMMIR4Y. It cannot seem to connect to the youtube server using IE7. In Firefox 2.0 I get a header error.
