“vConvert.net allows you convert an Online video like ‘YouTube videos’ to more popular formats like wmv, mov, mp4, mp3, 3gp etc. vConvert.net converts FLV to MPEG4 faster and less lossy than a typical transcoder.
When you submit a url, it will download the file to server and convert to the video format. Then you can download the converted file. ”
This service allows download into a number of formats. In addition to Ipod MP4, it supports WMV for windows, 3GP for Mobile, and Mac MOV format. Or if you are interested in only downloading the audio track into MP3 it can do that as well. They support the direct flv download also. I somehow expect that the list of supported formats will continue to grow.
It appears my initial iPhone hints assessment was wrong — I thought we’d only see a handful of iPhone tips and then it would fade into the background. Instead, there are now 15+ iPhone-related tips in the queue after only a week. I do expect things will slow down as we move forward — just like anything new (iTunes 7, etc.), the iPhone is getting a lot of attention right now. However, I felt that this volume of tips merited a new iPhone section, to make it easier for folks to either see just the iPhone tips, or to not see them at all.
You can use the Hints by Topic drop-down in the sidebar to easily see just the iPhone tips. If you’re at the other end of the spectrum (and you’re a registered user), you can set your preferences so that you never see iPhone tips. Just visit your account’s Preferences screen, and place a checkmark next to iPhone in the Excluded Items section of the page, then click Save Information.
And yes, I’m very much looking forward to October, when I expect we’ll start seeing a flood of hints on Leopard, iLife 07/08, and iWork 07/08 (assuming those are also released with/near 10.5). But after 26 months and 938 tips on 10.4, there’s just not a lot of top-secret 10.4 information to be found. So until 10.5 comes out, we’ll have the usual mix of application tips, AppleScript and Unix tips, and yes, now iPhone tips as well
