I’m on a bit of a Safari plug-in kick this week it seems. Today, I’m looking at CosmoPod, an extension that lets you download online videos from places like YouTube and then convert them to an iPod or AppleTV friendly format.
CosmoPod adds a button to the Safari Toolbar that becomes clickable when CosmoPod detects a video format it can download (FLV, Windows Media (mms) and Real Media stream (rtsp), WMV, DivX, …). Click that button and the download begins…then then conversion (MPEG4 or H.264 encoding)…then the naming and adding to iTunes if you so desire. You can also convert videos from your hard drive just by dragging and dropping.
CosmoPod sells for EUR6.90.
