Finally took the time to figure out how to store youtube videos on ipod touch and am really enjoying it.

Thanks to RealPlayer11 that comes with RealPlayer Downloader that downloads videos available in browser (including youtube videos).
However, the downloaded video will be in .flv format, which is not supported on ipod/iphone. So, I need a something that can convert .flv file into .mp4 file. A friend suggested an online converter to me but it took forever to convert a file (maybe just an individual case), so I gave it up.
And I found iSquint – a freeware that does that work perfectly well. The conversion is fast and there’s this microwave “ding" sound when conversion is finished. Somehow I really do enjoy that sharp “ding"!

Well, these are actually nothing new just that I didn’t bother to put videos on my ipod touch. But that night I suddenly wanted to put some videos of Philippe Jaroussky and Yo-yo Ma and many others on my ipod touch, and so I took the time to figure out how to do it. 

I know I can tap on that “youtube" icon on the ipod touch to watch youtube videos but 1) it needs internet connection; and 2) it takes time to download a video. I’d rather have them stored. Besides, some videos may be removed after some time due to whatever reason… having them stored is safer =P

Got the letter from Exam Authority yesterday and finally got to know the day of execution. I’ll have my LRSM piano exam on October 10, which is in less three week’s time. I needa submit a 1800-word program notes but I haven’t written a word yet. One good news is my teacher said I should do just alright in recital part. 

I’m basically taking the coming 2 weeks off from work (except studio and those students who are also taking exam soon) and concentrate on practice. Pray that I can really concentrate on practice and not something else. And I got to finish writing that program note before next Tuesday so that I don’t have to worry about it anymore. 

I’m trying to finish migrating from my old PC to the new iMac. Hopefully things can be done within the night (it’s 3am already). Palm synchronization messed up and I lost all the contacts on the palm. No idea if it’s palm’s fault or mac’s fault, or maybe my fault. Well, all I care is to have the problem solved. 

Oct 10 is the day of execution, a day when I take a ride on another roller coaster, an even more exciting one.
