Cool Youtube Converter

Today on The Frank DeCaro Show, Frank's guest was the fabulous Christine Ebersole. One of the clips he played was the super gay "The Revolutionary Costume For Today," which I decided immediately upon hearing it that I must have for my collection. I searched and searched, but couldn't find an MP3 of it anywhere.

What I did find however was this cool little site that will automatically convert YouTube vids into the format of your choosing: AVI, MOV, MP4, 3GP, or MP3. It was easy as pie and the result sounded exactly like the YouTube vid!

Now, for your enjoyment, Christine Ebersole!


  1. I've got some experience with downloading YouTube flv files and what I use is a command line utility called ffmpeg to convert the files for editing, far quicker and more robust than the converting websites IMO

  2. More robust? Definitely.

    Quicker? Possibly.

    Easier? Not even close, especially for non-computery folk. I didn't have to download the FLV first, and there was no mucking about with command line syntax. Just paste the URL in the box and go!
