Convert Youtube video to .mp3 locally

with one comment

Yes, there are online services that do that for you, like video2mp3, but where’s the fun in that? Besides, those services might go away, they might be down when you need them, or they might start charging you money.

Instead, you can do it on your machine, using youtube-dl (written in Python). Download the script and run it with the --extract-audio command-line option. You’ll need also ffmpeg, lame and libavcodec-extra-52
