Converting Flash Video to WMV

Lately I have downloaded some videos from youtube with real player 11. When I was ready to put them on my Creative Zen Vision M it would not put them on it. I tried this with another computer and had the same results. Does any body know how to fix real player 11 or know of a free no limitations program that can convert flash video to wmv format with decent quality? Please Reply

I am taking advice on this from other Moderators.

I understand that YouTube videos are subject to copyright, and cannot be downloaded without YouTube's permission.

While there appears to be software available to do this, if I am correct then this subject cannot be discussed in these forums because it breaches Forum Policy on copyright matters.

I will lock this discussion until a decision is made.

Sorry. If you feel I am mistaken, you can contact us through the "Report Offensive Post" button at the bottom of this post.

The consensus is

that downloading YouTube videos contravenes their Terms of Use, so I regret, but this discussion must remain locked.
