After 4 years, my trusty 4th gen 40gb iPod (grayscale) died on me. Thankfully, the Apple store is currently offering 10% off on new iPod’s if you recycle your old one…So I got the 6th gen 80gb Classic and I love it!
There are two things you’ll need to download YouTube videos. I myself use these free apps:
1. Fast Video Download – a Firefox plugin to actually download the YouTube video.

PC Users: You can use Videora iPod Converter.
For more details, you can read The Complete Guide to Converting Video to iPod Format on the iLounge website.
