How To Download And Extract Audio From YouTube Videos

A countless time that I’ve got a song in the background of a YouTube video and questioned, “Now, why isn’t that on my iPod, yet? Oh, right, because Best Buy doesn’t carry the album because it’s not in the Top 40. Foolish me.” There’s always a way of downloading from torrents, but for those of us a little leery of deciding for ourselves whether torrents are trustworthy or not, here are two exciting programs.

Free YouTube to MP3 Converter, VidtoMP3 or ListenToYouTube will download the audio from YouTube video for you (in either standard or high quality) and also convert it to MP3 file. A few clicks of the mouse later, you can save the file and drag it to your iTunes or MP3 device.
