In this website along with sharing and watching videos, you can very easily download your favorite videos and can watch them offline or when you are away from your home.

    But the main problem you often face in watching YouTube videos offline is that these files are available in flash video format which is not compatible with many popular media players. Therefore, in order to make these videos compatible for any player you may take the help of software which can be easily found on the internet.

Then you have to select the format in which you want to convert the video from the list of options available. For example, if you want to convert the FLV file to MP3 format then you may select the option of mp3 and have to press the option of “convert video”. It will take some time to convert the video to mp3 format depending on the size of the file. Moreover, you may convert your favorite YouTube video to mp3 even before downloading the file on your computer. With the help of these applications you may convert videos directly from the website.

    You can get an FLV download, and then windows movie maker is great for stealing the music from the videos. I cannot remember the name of the downloader software, but once you do that, import the video and copy it to the "audio" portion in WMM and save. Linux wise, I am not sure what tool there is, but any video editor should be able to do the conversion.

    There is a very good site that downloads Youtube videos. Although it also offers a conversion from Youtube videos to .mp3 audio files

    The site is called Keepvid. I will post a link once I have the requirements to post a link.

    You just copy the URL and choose what format, quality, etc.

    I would be cautious about using those youtube to mp3 websites. One of the main sites seems to be in a bit of trouble with Google because it may not be so legal to turn copyrighted videos into mp3s.

    Why do we need to go this far just to convert a youtube video? If I remember rightly, we can do the same thing just as easily with a plugin.

    Does this website allows you to upload a certain file, then convert it & download it converted?

    I use a Linux utility called youtube-dl. The syntax is easy youtube-dl URL and it downloads a html-5 video to the folder you run the command from. After that I use any of several conversion programs to change it to whatever I want. No need to rely on third party sites at all.

    Nice to here that but I personally use any video converter or zamzaar for converting any file to any other format whether it is a video file or an audio file.

    You should try YouTube to Mp3 Downloader, it downloads all your favorite music from YouTube straight to your computer in a wide variety of formats. Free YouTube to Mp3 Downloader is also very simple to use. Simply copy and paste the YouTube URL into the YouTube to Mp3 Software and have your favorite song downloaded in just a seconds.
