Default Download Videos From Youtube, Google, and Put Them On Zen V Plus

Thats right, you can actually do this and add them to your player

first go to youtube (or other video sites, like Google Video) and find a video you want.

next copy and paste the URL

then go to www.keepvid.com and enter the URL there

Download the video onto your Hard Drive

make sure your downloaded file's name ends with .flv

Open Up Creative Zen Video Converter (Or Any other converter you wish)

Convert them to any file type supported by your player.

you can use the converter that comes wiht Creative Media Source, Or Media Explorer, I coudlnt find any free ones on the web, and as for your question about games, there might be a hack like that in the near future, i know my friend managed to get a few extra games on his nano

I first learned about this via the javimoya blog months ago. Then I found keepvid. (I'm sure I posted about it here somewhere.) I've added tons of videos to my iAudio 6. I have fewer videos on my Zen V+ (the files are so much bigger).

I like the Zen V+ video converter, it's quicker. Unfortunately, I can't edit videos; but, with the i6 Jet Audio video converter, I can.

Cool

Unfortunately I can't get the Creative Video Converter to recognize the file. When I downloaded the video, which is a .flv file, the program complains that it is not a valid source file. Any suggestions anyone?

the hackman, I use the Riva FLV Encoder. When I'm ready to convert I change the .flv file extension to .mpg and then let the encoder do its thing! Once the conversion is complete I then convert the file using the Creative Media Explorer converter. Works like a charm.

Sounds like a lot, but I think it's worth it.

yes, you could try what mp3undgeroundfan said, unfortunately i dotn have an answer to your problem, just make sure that you rename the file so that it ends with a .flv??

example: when you download the video from keepvid, it saves as someething like get_vid, instead rename it to something like: musicvideo.flv, should work then

Yes, I was able to transfer a couple of experimental Youtube videos using the Riva FLV encoder and the Creative Video Converter. Thanks for your help everyone.

You're right, after downloading from keepvid, you must add .flv. But, Creative Media Explorer won't recognize this. So then in Riva FLV you must change the extension from .flv to .mpg. Creative Media Explorer will recognize .mpg and convert the video.

Good for you, the hackman!

Default Converting flv videos to mpg

I've been using Keepvid.com to download videos as .flv, and they play well in Riva Player. Certain ones will not convert properly to .mpg. The video is fine, but there is no sound. I've tried to convert from .flv to .mpg using Riva Encoder, Creative Zen's converter and other software. Still no sound. Any hints?

you can also go to http://ares.mp3.es and download it and do the same thing. you pull up ares tube (the program) go to youtube, google video, etc. find a video, and when you find one you like click the little plus sign in the top right corner and then click download. I don't knoow if it works for Zen, though, it was meant for iPod, but I use it for Sansa e200R. Lol, I'm on the wrong forum it's my little bro who has aa Zen V

Default Converting flv for Zen V plus

Ive used the unplug extension on Firefox to save youtube videos as flv format. To get the Creative Video Converter to recognise these file types you can download Replay Converter from Applian Technologies and install. This seems to install various conversion codecs. After installing this the Zen V+ VideoConverter will recognise flv files!
