    How to download a youtube video to mp3?

    Hi when I go to see the chrome 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 all.

    Re: How to download a youtube video to mp3?

    I've had pretty good results with a two-step procedure, Raiser. First I use youtube-dl to download the video.
    Code:
    # youtube-dl youtube-url-of-your-video
    Then I extract and convert the audio to mp3 using ffmpeg.
    Code:
    # ffmpeg -i "input file name downloaded from youtube-dl" -acodec libmp3lame -ab 192k -ac 2 -ar 44100 "Output file name.mp3"
    Hope that helps.

    Jihosoft 4K Video Downloader can help you do that. You may suspect its function because of its name. In fact, Jihosoft 4K Video Downloader is more than just a video downloader. In addition to downloading videos from YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Dailymotion, Tumblr, and other websites, it can also convert videos to MP3 format, and keep the audio in high-quality.

    The whole process of converting YouTube to MP3 is very simple, you just need to copy the link address of the music video you want to download, then paste it into the program, and check the Convert to MP3 option in the next pop-up box, and then tap Download, the software will automatically extract the audio from the video and save it to your computer.

    Or else, in a single step,
    youtube-dl -x --audio-format mp3 youtube-url-of-your-video
