How to Download YouTube to PS3 and Watch Offline

Love playing these Grand Theft Auto IV, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, Assassin's Creed 3? Want to watch some prevue clips on YouTube before go to the cinema? Have you ever wanted to just sit on your couch and watch YouTube on your TV? You can make them now with your PlayStation3! Although PS3 is a video game console, it does more than that. First, it's able to play Blu-ray discs, DVDs, CDs and even any video and audio files in the supported formats which can be stored on its internal hard drive or an external memory storage. Users with a PS3 console that has an Internet connection can not only play games, but also enjoy favorite YouTube videos using PS3's default web browser. To watch YouTube on PS3, simply open the web browser on PS3, and then enter the URL: www.youtube.com/tv and now you're good to go!

However, not all PS3 game consoles can connect to Internet, and offline YouTube playback on PS3 has a smooth and better video experience. Therefore, a YouTube to PS3 downloader is required. You can take a look at iSkysoft iTube Studio for Mac. It is a professional YouTube downloader and converter app which allows you to download any YouTube video to PS3 on Mac, and keep the video in the original quality. Let me introduce the way to convert YouTube to PS3 by simple words.

Since YouTube videos are in FLV format, which is not supported by PS3, so you need to download YouTube video first and then convert to Playstation 3 compatible formats such as MP4. You can easily accomplish these with iTube Studio for Mac, see below.

On your Mac, download and install iSkysoft iTube Studio. When complete, a Download button will be added to any video in the supported browsers, including including Safari, Chrome and Firefox. Make sure the corresponding extension has been installed in Preferences.

YouTube to PSP Tips:

1. If you already have many existing FLV videos on your Mac, you can also convert to Playstation-compatible format after imported to the library by Library > Add FLV files to Library.


Transfer YouTube video to PS3 with Memory Stick Card

Playstation 3 supports many types of card, but Memory Stick is recommended for better compatibility. SO connect your Memory Stick to Mac via a card reader. Then a drive will appear on the desktop. Double click it to put the Converted YouTube files into the Video folder. It's better not to use subfolders. On the PS3, scroll over to Video in the main menu and select it the YouTube video you want to play. Have fun.
