Kickyoutube.com and Youtube Downloader both work.  They are a bit slower than they used to be, though.

Or, if you use Firefox, install the Video DownloadHelper (link below) and download YouTube videos (in MP4) right off your web-browser (it even retains the title names).  Then, use SMC to convert and put the video into your Sansa Fuze.  The whole process is really quite easy.  I know some people don't like SMC.  But, SMC does this part of the conversion quite well.

Certainly, the YouTube police has made the site much more oppressive.  However, there are some old, arcane stuff (including music) which they don't put down.  Also, if you're quick enough, you can catch some stuff before they delete them.   YouTube is not what it used to be.  Our big brother, Google, has made it almost intolerable.  But, it does contain stuff that is free and you can put your own videos up to share.

But this is not Google's fault. The content industry and other performance rights organizations are constantly threatening to sue Google and are forcing them to delete and geoblock videos and to install content filters.


And it is our responsibility as citizens of supposedly democratic countries to fix the ridiculously outdated copyright laws that allow them to do do this. So stop blaming Google.

I use Youtube for songs and occasionally videos with the Any Video Coverter.  I learned about that program here, and it's very handy.  I guess it still works, but it's really slow.

Everyone's entitled to their own opinion.  I've just downloaded a handful of Chet Atkins videos and part of the enjoyment is watching him strum that guitar.  He's fantastic.  I'd like Sandisk to add a repeat function for videos.
