Ytconv.net added new 3GP video format

Yes, YtConv.net already supported 3gp video format. The new 3gp format is subsidary.
What’s the different from the old 3gp:

  1. different video resolution. it’s 240p, the video size (width x height) is 320×240
  2. better video quality
  3. guarantee that you will not get any ‘server is busy’ message that you usually see when converting to the old 3gp format. The 3GP video is taken directly from Youtube server, therefore no need to convert it first.
  4. faster conversion, in fact, it’s instant after grabbing progress is completed.
  5. in many case, the file size is smaller than the old one.

However, there are some drawbacks:

  1. the video might not be playable in old phone (I haven’t tested it on old Nokia phone, the video is playable in Nokia Asha 303)
  2. the grabbing progress take longer than the old one. That’s because the 3gp video taken directly from Google/Youtube server without converting it in YtConv server.
  3. monotonous audio channel (this is default from Youtube) and the audio rate is only at 22KHz. So, the audio quality might be worse from the old one.

If you are using YtConv advanced tricks, the “hq” parameter for this new 3gp format is 6

Pro tips using YtConv.net

YTConv.net is a website that provide free service to convert your Youtube video into an mp3, mp4, flv, 3gp and avi. The converted video then can be downloaded into your PC or mobile phone.

Tips #1 : Access YTconv.net faster simply by changing “youtube.com” into “ytconv.net” in your video URL.
Example:
you want to convert this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YVw7eJ0vGfM into an mp3, you just need to change word “youtube.com” from the URL into “ytconv.net”, so, your new URL would be: http://www.ytconv.net/watch?v=YVw7eJ0vGfM
Open this new URL into your browser, see what happened 😀

Tips #2: this is complementary for tips #1, suppose you want to convert to other format other than mp3, you need to add “&hq=” into your new URL. This is the full list of “&hq=” value:
&hq=0 –> convert into mp3 (192kbps)
&hq=1 –> convert into mp3 (256kbps)
&hq=2 –> convert into flv
&hq=3 –> convert into 3gp
&hq=4 –> convert into mp4
&hq=5 –> convert into avi

Example:
you want to convert this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YVw7eJ0vGfM into an mp4, you just need to change word “youtube.com” from the URL into “ytconv.net” and add “&hq=4” into the URL, so, your new URL would be: http://www.ytconv.net/watch?v=YVw7eJ0vGfM&hq=4
Open this new URL into your browser, see what happened 😀

Tips #3: bypass Adf.ly ads. If you, for some reason (such as: the countdown counter did not work), do not want to see adf.ly ads when you click on “DOWNLOAD” button, then do not click the “DOWNLOAD” button. Instead, wait for 60 seconds and then the download will start automatically without needing to see any adf.ly ads.

Tips #4: always download the file from ytconv.net using download accelerator. It is compatible for most common download accelerator. If you don’t want to install any, you can always use DownThemAll add-on for Firefox.

 

That’s it for now.. I’m tired…
