What it is: YouTube hosts millions of videos, but sometimes you just want to capture the audio portion and save it as a file.
One of the most popular video sharing sites in the world is YouTube, where anyone can post videos for the whole world to watch and enjoy. While many of these videos are only useful if you can view them, some of these YouTube videos can be handy just for the audio portion alone such as concerts, individual songs, or speeches.
The simplest way to capture audio from a YouTube video is to use a free online service such as one of the following:
The basic idea is to visit YouTube and capture the unique address of the video you want. Then visit one of the above online services and paste the YouTube link into that online service. With minutes (depending on the length of the YouTube video), the online service will display a link that will let you download an MP3 audio file of that YouTube video. Now you can listen to your favorite YouTube videos just as an audio file alone.
