    Best way to download a youtube video to mp3?

    Hi when I go to see the firefox addons it shows quite a list of addons that can let you download an audio stream from a youtube video, however, they all except for one which didnt work for me, want to have access to all the sites you go on. Are there any that Fedora provide that are not packed with potential spyware?

    Thanks in advance.

    Code:
    youtube-dl --postprocessor-args "-ar 44100" -f bestaudio --audio-quality 5 --write-description -x --audio-format mp3 <url>
    I believe you also need ffmpeg in this case from rpmfusion in order to convert youtube audio formats into mp3.

    Thanks all, I think I will stick to the youtube-dl. Curiously one of them with a GUI didnt actually work as it complained the link was too long. I wonder why some of them require it to use a third party website? Are they spying on what you are looking to download?

    Maybe you can add a Firefox Tampermonkey extension and a VidPaw extension on your browser. After successfully installed, refresh the Youtube video page and you will see a download button, then you can choose to download the YouTube video to mp3 format.

    I can think about Other way that do not ask to add nothing,
    and you can have allot from those and more websites like:
    YouTube, Facebook, Soundcloud, Twitter, Vimeo, etc. to MP3, MP4
    chose what you like and with click convert to the format you want and Quality that you want.
    and with click Download the file mp3/mp4.

    I use ClipGrad to download and VLC to extract the audio.
