Youtube Music

Post#1 » Mon Feb 02, 2009 2:49 pm

A friend was telling me about a tool you can use to rip music off youtube videos. I know of tools that you can download youtube videos to your computer but is there one that you can use to take just the music off it?

There are many ways, but I use one of these two:

The quick and dirty way:

Code: Select all

mplayer -dumpaudio source.flv -dumpfile destination.mp3

A slightly slower, but sometimes better way:

Code: Select all

ffmpeg -i source.flv -ab 128 -ar 44100 destination.mp3


Of course these require you have either mplayer or ffmpeg, both of which were designed under Linux, but also run on Mac and Windows.

Exactly as written. I don't think there are GUI equivalents of these, so you'll need to do them from a shell (or command prompt).

You could also try throwing them directly into the "run" box in windows, but I don't usually do that. The way I'd try it on windows is to bring up a command prompt (toss "cmd" into the run dialogue), and type what I have above into that. Again, you'll need to install one of those two to make it work.
