YouTube channels are a wonderful way to keep up-to-date.
The White-House, TED, or some nice music players (i.e. Playing for change) – all use YouTube channels to stream some great content.
Watching this content offline – could be a great use of your time in some situations…
The problem is, that YouTube doesn’t offer an easy way to get this channel on your MP4 player.

Lucky for me – iTunes together with RSSHandler – offer a solution just for that.

Simply copy-paste the channel’s URL:
i.e. http://www.youtube.com/user/whitehouse
Into the RSSHandler: http://www.rsshandler.com/converter

And put the resulting url:

http://www.rsshandler.com/flvrss.rss?feedurl=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Frss%2Fuser%2Fwhitehouse%2Fvideos.rss&format=18
Into iTunes as a new PodCast.
Start downloading the different videos of the channel (iTunes handle this for you).
And sync your iPhone with these videos (again, iTunes did a wonderful job).

Voila.

Obama video addresses are now offline-copied to my train rides…

Fun 🙂
