Thanks for the link Keith - I was just wondering if anyone has had any success converting some of these videos to mp3. Given the time constraints in PMR I was hoping to double-up on tasks and do some exercise while listening to these questions and answers, given that the most useful data pertinent to reducing our entropy is contained almost exclusively in the audio. :)

Dom,

YouTube now has a Download button beneath the video screen, which has a drop-down menu of different formats, including MP3, so it's nice 'n' easy to do!

Thanks Arthur,
I have had another crack at downloading the audio, but there does not appear to be a link. I suspect this this is because of the geographic region I am in. The only viable alternative that I can think of it to manually connect a piece of recording hardware to the headphone port and to try and record it in real time, as one would have done twenty years ago! Thanks anyway.

As far as I know, the download option is only available at a select few videos on Youtube.

However, there are literally dozens of way to download and convert Youtube video to audio. There are both software and websites such as http://www.flvto.com/ or http://www.video2mp3.net/ (Search for FLV to mp3 or Youtube to mp3 in Google for more). Since it's a very long video compared to the average, it is not practical for a website to download it, convert it, and upload it to you. I recommend the software then, such as dvdvidoesoft, another option is the Firefox addon called Video Downloadhelper which can basically download all videos to your computer, it can also convert them to audio with an additional install of a converter.

Thanks Specialis,

I can see a couple there that I have not already tried, which I will give a go, considering I am using Firefox. Cheers,
Dom

That's interesting - the download option is there on all YouTube videos I try here in UK, including all of Tom's I've checked. The option is a fairly recent addition - only within the past few months, and I presumed is a reaction by YT to the many programs now available for the purpose of downloading YT videos, i.e. "if you can't beat 'em, join 'em!".

Maybe geographic, as Dom suggests, in which case it may soon be rolled out everywhere.

Hmm, are you sure the download option is from Youtube itself? It seems strange that it is available on all the Youtube videos you try.. as the option tends to be available when the owner has given the license (creative commons) to it. For example, with this Boston video it says "License: Standard YouTube-license" below the tags (you have to expand the info box). Can you tell me what it says there, or maybe take a screenshot? This Khan Academy video is an example of a video with creative commons license, it should be available for download in MP4 for everyone. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=52ZlXsFJULI

I have also tried to use "UK internet" through a web proxy, it didn't change my options.

We should figure this out :)

Edit: "Downloading videos from YouTube is not supported, except for one instance when it is permitted."

Whew.. finally got it. The VideoDownloadHelper add-on for Firefox allows you to save the MPEG-4 version, but not the mp3. Then if you import the mp4 file into Audition you can save it as an mp3! Took some time, but it was worth it. Thanks!

Is there a way to do this in Chrome?

There is no download button for youtube for me. It doesn't matter if I use IE or Chrome, I don't see any link that allows downloading.

There are many tools available for Chrome as well as for Firefox.
look under Preferences --> Extensions or similar

For Chrome, this for instance:
https://chrome.google.com/webstore/deta ... lkdm?hl=de
(may be the wrong language for you as I pasted it from my localized search)
I did not try it because Chrome is not my main Browser.

For Firefox, which I use mostly, there is "DownloadHelper" for instance, which lets you download from almost any site - not just youtube.
I use it and it has helped me a lot!
