Convert YouTube to Samsung compatible format

YouTube saves its video in FLV format so that anyone can play it with Adobe Flash Player regardless of operating system. To play the downloaded YouTube video on Samsung phones, you have to convert FLV to Samsung compatible format. Here MP4 with 640*480 resolutions (even higher if your phone supports) is recommended. So go to the “Downloaded” tab, and click the “Convert” button to open the format list. Then select MP4 as the output format and start converting the video. The conversion time is based on the size of the movie and video file.
