I use this one . But sadly, beyond the fact that this particular piece of software works, that is all I know on the topic.

Just to make a lier out of myself, I know you can convert them into avi, wmv, mpeg, mov, etc with this bit of software as well.

MPEG Streamclip is an awesome freeware converter that will suit most of your needs. I don’t know about 3gp… But it can easily convert flv to mp4, which is a standard video file that shouldn’t be hard to convert to anything. To download from YouTube, I use the Firefox add-on here.

To be honest, I’d recommend getting a video/mp3 player and downloading podcasts and/or books. To download YouTube videos, convert, and add to your phone will take more time then it’s worth putting in. Not to mention the fact the YouTube is an incredible, awesome, hilarious waste of time. There are probably more constructive entertainment devices for your ride to work :)

It’s a small Window, all you do is first, Copy the link on the Youtube video,
Go to the Youtube Downloader Window, Paste, then click Ok.
