Easily Download YouTube Videos to Your PSP
As we’ve already learned, it isn’t possible to watch YouTube videos on a PSP due to the browser being unsuitable for viewing Flash format content. This isn’t a major problem, however, as YouTube supplies content in different formats and a variety of resolutions.
As well as FLV, YouTube also keeps a copy of each video in MP4 format; this is useful for viewing clips on portable devices or computers where FLV isn’t practical (for instance, it might be blocked by a system or network policy) and it is a simple task to take advantage of these MP4 clips and view them on your PSP.
To begin, open YouTube and find the clip that you wish to download. Open the page hosting the video in your PSP web browser and then select and copy the URL. Next, open www.keepvid.com.
KeepVid is a great website that effortlessly allows you to download a YouTube clip simply by pasting the URL into the page. You will see the space where the URL for the clip should be pasted, so drop the address of the video into the field and click Download. A few moments later you should see that a selection of downloads are available; these will be in the various formats that the video can be displayed in, and one of them with be an MP4 file.
Select the MP4 file and download it to your PSP, and in just a few short moments you will be able to enjoy your selected YouTube clip on your portable games console!
