    for those pixi users who have the youtube download patch, if you have a video you want as a mp3 just go into internalz then go to the info to that file and just edit the mp4 at the end of the file name to mp3 and viola it's a mp3. Ready to be burned or put into your playlist.

    This is an awesome tip, thanks! Just to clarify, I just tried this on my Pre and it worked here too (obviously).

    wouldn't that make the mp3 unnecessarily huge though?

    Yes, it is roughly 2 times larger for a song that has album art as the video portion of the mp4.

    Still a cool tip.

    yeah it would but its a fast and simple way to convert the file directly on the phone. i dont mind it, i hate having to transfer files from my phone to the pc and then back. basicly every video ive converted is going onto a cd so its just gonna get erased anyways.

    Its not converting anything. Its just changing the container type. This kind of trickery will only work on decoders that are sloppy/lazy and not checking the codec type properly. I would be very surprised to see this work on any in-car or other embedded mp3 player.

    FLV is h264 for video, and AAC for audio 99% of the time. If the device/software you want to use with these files either does not support AAC or does an actual check on the file/codec, it will likely fail to play or behave erratically.

    Its cool that the webOS player can be tricked, but that just shows me that its rather poor (not a huge surprise, doesn't support gapless or anything else nice)
