Youtube Downloader
« on: September 14, 2011, 06:02:08 PM »
I want to download an album or two that is on youtube but is out of print and/or can't be bought on CD, and both burn the music to a CD and also put it on my Mp3 player. Anyone know a free downloader I can use? I've tried several from cnet that claim to be completely free, but there's always a catch (e.g. you'll be part way done downloading a song and you'll suddenly get a message that says: "Oops, did we forget to mention that when we said we were free what we meant was that you could only download half a song for free? Please buy our modestly priced $79.99 software now!")

Did you try this? It's what I use and I haven't had any problems with sudden, unexpected costs.

I know you you can download Youtube videos with the site, Voobys.com . Simply replace the "youtube" part of the video's web address with "voobys", then download the clip to your computer. It should be easier to find a free mp4 to mp3 converter.

Note : Many of my posts (especially the ones antedating late 2012) do not reflect charity, tact, or even views I presently hold. Please forgive me for any antagonism I have caused.

You can always record from "speakers" instead of mic.

If you have a windows deal, this should show you how to do it:

This is hackish and reliable way of doing.

I rip videos and audio from youtube in with some stuff in OS X.
If you have PMed me, the mods have taken my ability to PM away. Please see my email if you wish to contact me during my time of trial.

Real Player has a video downloader.
