YOUTUBE AND MP3'S

Post by NEILL » Tue Jun 10, 2008 12:05 pm



There has been a lot of discussion in the last week regarding Youtube and
gleaning mp3's from the videos.
Well, here's what may seem to be a dumb question to most, but how is it done ??

Gleaning!?? I take that you mean making an audio form a video or MP3
You must have a recorder program.I got mine from "Bitlord"
Video takes up too much disk space

What Smokalotapot says is true - and you can find a number of shareware programs on CNet. Another thing to remember is that when mp3 files are uploaded to YouTube as the backdrop for videos, the sound is degraded. When you rip the sound files, you lose that much more quality. So, your end product will be fair quality at best.

It's really quite simple these days. I have a rather large vinyl collection (largely influenced by CFNY during my university years) which I am loath to re-purchase in order to listen to on my mp3 player. At first I was recording my albums through my amp onto my computer as .wav files, then burning them to CD's along with the cover art. But that process took so long that I gave up long before I had gotten through my good records!

so now I just go onto Youtube, copy the url of a good quality video, then go over to Google, do a search on 'Youtube to MP3' which will bring up a host of converter sites. The best one is usually the first in the listing: paste your URL into the box (it's self-explanitory once you see it). Submit the conversion and in a minute or so you will have an mp3 file produced. The site will then prompt you to save it to your computer (usually goes to the download folder).

After that all you have to do is add it to iTunes or copy to your generic MP3 player. Presto, you have a playable version of the tune that you already shelled out good $$$ on. The only caveat is that the quality varies depending on the Youtube post. But that's not too hard to take considering the quality of broadcast that we were used to back in the day :)
