youtube to audio convertoer (MP3)

Postby tlcmd » Fri Jun 07, 2013 8:51 am

After searching this forum, I found the latest post re: a youtube converter was around 3 years old. Any current suggestions for the best free youtube to audio converter (MP3, Ogg Vorbis)?

Thanks,
tlcmd (aka Dick)

There are some options available. I don't know if you downloaded those youtube movies to your local hard disc.

Ps... BTW you are only allowed to do this with videos you uploaded (generally). More on that ;

Here is a link to maybe have another option to extract audio from your youtube videos
http://www.catonmat.net/blog/how-to-extract-audio-tracks-from-youtube-videos/

You should have ffmpeg already installed on your box, from the "multimedia repo", if not install it, if desired.

It's basically like this, for example:

Code: Select all

$ ffmpeg -i "name-of-video.flv" -ab 160k "name-of-video.mp3"

The -ab 160k is your desired bit rate of the mp3 track.

This tool/command can convert ogg to mp3 and vice-versa; just replace .mp3 with .ogg as the final extension.

Hope this helps. :wink:

"avidemux" (in repos) - as the name implies - can extract the raw audio from videos; I'm pretty sure you can make it convert the audio to mp3 by selecting mp3, rather than "copy", in the video conversion options (left side of main GUI).
Adobe Audition (under 'wine')can open .mp4 video files as audio; "audacity" (in repos) might be able to do the same.

Code: Select all

sudo wget http://youtube-dl.org/downloads/2013.08.02/youtube-dl -O /usr/local/bin/youtube-dl
sudo chmod a+x /usr/local/bin/youtube-dl

Code: Select all

youtube-dl http://URL/name-of-video.flv
avconv -i "name-of-video.flv" -ab 160k "name-of-video.mp3"



Or perhaps every file in your current directory ending flv

Code: Select all

find . -name "*.flv" -exec avconv -i "{}" -ab 160k "{}.mp3" \;

For mp4 to WAV try:

Code: Select all

faad -o ~/out.wav ~/in.mp4

I do it like this because the tools are always included in Mint...
mplayer -novideo -ao pcm input.flv # makes a wav file called 'audiodump.wav'
sox audiodump.wav -C6 audiodump.ogg norm -1 # makes a loud, hifi, compressed version
The half-life of a running drive is around six years...there's a 1-in-3000 chance that yours fails today.

The way I do this is by first downloading the video using a Firefox plugin called Flash Video Downloader, and then extracting the audio using WinFF (a GUI for FFMpeg).

As disadvantages, it's a 2-step process, and it can be a little time consuming.
But I find this way handy because I keep the video file and can also resample the audio if I want to (ie change the bitrate).
It also permits the creation of settings templates, so I have one for audio with good quality and another one for conferences or talks I just need to listen to once and then delete, doing it quickly at 24Kbps audio bitrate.


All done from the GUI with one hand on the chin and another on the mouse... :roll:
Bye for now,

Just to let you know that now I'm happily using the Firefox add-on called Flash Video Downloader. Apart from the drop-down options for downloading the video in different resolutions, it allows one to download straight down the audio MP3 from that video. Click - click (wait) and you shall have the thing. No conversion needed, unless you want to change the bitrate.
Bye for now,

I know a lot of people posted some good converters or add-ons but here is one online that I use a lot and had no problems with so far named Faasoft Video Converter.
