    YT MP3 Ripper

    YT MP3 Ripper 14th Mar 15 at 4:25 AM
    Can anyone recommend a good YouTube audio ripper, preferably a website into which one enters a URL and then downloads the audio?

    I used to use VIDTOMP3, a site that I was a bit dubious about but seemed OK providing you ensure you don't agree to download any of its free software. Now it seems to be the source for me getting advertising software on my laptop so won't be using it again.

    Just tried this but rather than an MP3, it downloaded an exe named the same as the video.

    Are you sure this site is OK? Looks a bit suspect to me.

    I use www.youtube-mp3.org
    Works well for me. I think there is a limit on track length though of 20 minutes from memory, so you can't just download a whole album in one go.

    When you've found a Youtube clip you want to download the audio for, click on Share and copy the URL that comes up, then paste it into youtube-mp3 . The resulting mp3 file can then be saved to disc and then opened with iTunes or whatever.

    If you are a firefox user, videodownloadhelper is a good add-on, nice shiny new version 5.

    This site allows the option of downloading either full video or audio only for a youtube url - no time limits.

    Offliberty looks good. However, is there a way to get it to just extract the audio without having to wait for it to extract the video too?

    yes - after you enter the url and click the button - the audio link should appear by itself as the yellow 'right click here and save link as' button

    (with a 'i want video file' and 'go back' button below)

    e.g.

    Isn't it amazing how people are allowed to upload whole albums to Youtube (I found almost any album I can think of on YT, usually with a slide show for video), but s site like Pirate Bay gets hounded to death for similar?

    Wonder how much longer they will exist?

    News on 27th Sept:
    "Sony, Warner Bros, and Universal, have filed a claim against YouTube-mp3.org and its German operator Philip Matesanz, in a federal court in Los Angeles"

    Who needs a website when there are a 1001 browser addons that will do the same?

    Regarding the court case, that shouldnt take much to defend, the content on youtube is freely available to watch/record is it not?

    They need to redirect their court case towards the website storing the copyrighted material (YouTube).
