Softorino YouTube Converter – Download Videos or Music for Free!

Softorino YouTube Converter – Download Videos or Music for Free!
6

Softorino has recently released a new tool, and they have outdone themselves again, this time with a YouTube Converter.

You might have read my Windows or MacOS X review on Softorino’s WALTR. In my humble opinion, their WALTR tool is the ultimate tool to transfer and/or convert video, music and ringtones to your iOS device (iPad, iPhone) almost instantly. So this kind-a gives you an idea of what I expect of a Softorino product …

I have not been disappointed … The new app, Softorino YouTube Converter, works super easy and super smooth. I’ve played with other tools, and online services, to save YouTube content in the past, and I never really liked any of them. Softorino YouTube Converter however is a whole different animal … in short: it’s awesome and I highly recommend it. It’s easy, very fast, and skips the annoying ads,… and best of all: it’s FREE!

Since there is so ridiculous much content available on YouTube, this could definitely become and great resource for free music and videos. Either for your iOS device, your Mac OS X computer, or your Windows PC.

So in this article I’ll show you this new application from Softorino, which Josh promised will remain free and is available for MacOS X and Windows (Windows version will be released once it’s out of beta).

You probably will not need this every day, and I admit that goes for me as well. Today however I needed this: screen recording things I’d be doing on my iOS device (iPhone, iPad, iPod).

In the past we’d need to JailBreak our iOS device, but with the arrival of Mac OS X Yosemite (10.10) and iOS 8, we can do this straight on our Mac without any extra tools or tricks – just with the build-in tools from Mac OS X and iOS, in this case QuickTime.

In this article I’ll show you how you can make a screen recording (make a video of the screen of your iOS device) with a well hidden feature of QuickTime.

Some of you might have read one or the other article at Tweaking4All, related to moving Audio and/or Video files to your beloved iOS device (iPod, iPad or iPhone) without the use of iTunes. Not many of us like iTunes, and that includes me.

As a response to one of these articles, one of the Tweaking4All visitors recommended WALTR, a new application available for the Mac OS X and Windows platform, which allows copying music, ringtones and video files to your iOS device without iTunes.

As usual, I was pretty skeptical as we have all seen too many of these “miracle apps”, especially when they are not free.
WALTR is not free either and initially, $29.95 sounds pretty steep for such an application, but I promise you: it’s worth it! It makes transferring audio and video to your iOS super fast and super simple.

So if you frequently want to transfer audio and/or video files to your iOS device, then I can highly recommend this application!
If you want to do it only once or twice, then at least consider using the free trial version.

In this article I’ll discuss the Windows version, and will give you a quick overview how to get started, and what it does and does not do, and some tips and tricks that might be helpful. I did write the same article for Mac OS X as well.

Making your own Ringtone isn’t difficult, but it can be a bit daunting at times how to exactly do it.

In this article I’ll show you how you can create your own ringtones, from music files like MP3’s or even from movie files like AVI, MP4, etc. For this we will use WavePad which is available for Windows and MacOS X for free (for home use).

Unfortunately, creating a ringtone for an iPhone can be surprisingly daunting … and in my opinion that doesn’t exactly match the Apple philosophy … oh well. It’s even more difficult than with the good old flip-phone, so much for “smart” phones.

In this guide I’ll show you how to quick and easy create and install a MP3 ringtone under MacOS X. The source can be basically any audio or video file with the trick we show here.
