I download YouTube video with an "Ant" plugin for Mozilla and reencode it to a Video CD mpg then strip an mp2 from it with about a 15 year old version of TMPGenc freeware.

There could very easily be an easier solution. One might be YouTube's mp3 download site but I must've maxed it out because it's 'Out To Lunch' for me (apologies to Eric Dolphy)

Ripping audio from videos and streams can be tricky. I used to keep up with the techniques, which change over time. But to make it easier I use a freebie like Audacity, Audiograbber or an old copy of Cool Edit Pro I've had since Hector was a pup. Cool Edit Pro is the best of the bunch for entry to mid-level audio editing, very low resource for contemporary PCs if you can get it to run. But it was bought by Adobe several years ago and renamed Adobe Audition. You can still find old versions of Cool Edit Pro online with an activation key, but beware of malware sites. However it works very well for realtime recording of audio streams, or off my shortwave radio. But by now the latest version of Audacity may be just as good, and it's legitimately freeware, no need to jump through hoops.

Audacity would be my choice. Also, there is DVDvideosoft. They used to be free, and still are technically, but the pay versions have the full features. The nice thing about DVDvideosoft is you can go to a video site, like Youtube, paste the file path into the program and it will convert to a audio file. This is faster than recording in real time.

Yeah the old Pazera freeware I use for the initial video reencoding to mpg has been bought by somebody and my McAfee anti-virus software doesn't like their site. That's why I didn't mention it before. And a google on that reaffirmed that a couple years ago or so.......But I got mine malware free and backed it up threefold.

Hmm, I didn't know Audacity could be used for that, how do you do it?

I have found a plugin for firefox that allows me to download mp3. I forget the name though, there are so many out there with names all so similar.

Note: Google = Chrome = Youtube, so I think you can count on the universe of Chrome apps/plugins/extensions/whatever, you can count on them not having a lot to offer for stealing from utub

Yeah, if you can use an extension that extracts the audio that's the easiest solution.

Using Audacity and other software to record while playing varies a bit with the OS, but usually involves opening the audio properties in both Windows and the audio editor/recorder to find the right combination of settings to simultaneously play and record while monitoring without feedback loops.

I haven't used Audacity in years and the latest version may be more sophisticated. Cool Edit Pro had outstanding tools for equalizing and audio levels. But there are also tools to automate that process within preset parameters -- Winamp and others had those plugins/extensions.

Audacity records in real time during playback, it doesn't strip audio out of a video file/flash movie as far as I know.

Yeah I use an older version of TMPGenc to do it with a reencoded downloaded video and there's no fuss no muss about it doing it that way. It just splits an mpg into mp2 audio & mlv silent video files when you drop a finger on your mouse.

I'll be darned if I can distinguish any quality difference between mp2 & mp3 either. They both play on a PC from any data disk using Winamp lite.
