Providing “Audio Only” – Part Deux
If you use the Firefox browser, then get the “Download YouTube Videos as MP4 and FLV 1.3” extension.
Installing this will add a button on the YouTube site to assist you in downloading the video in either MP4 or FLV format. Install, restart Firefox, visit YouTube, select the video format in which you want to save, and download.
I have a registered copy of Cucusoft’s Video Converter Suite, but if you don’t already have an app, get the free VLC media player. Follow the steps listed in the article below and you will easily have the mp3 audio file ripped from the original YouTube video:
Copyright and permissions aside, but adhered to, technically, it doesn’t get much simpler or “freer” to set up a simple system to rip the audio for your YouTube videos and be able to add the mp3 (audio only) file to your blog posting. Install one free extension to your Firefox browser, download and install a free app to your Windows System… viola!
and the ripped audio only (approx. 2MB file size).
