campfire songs - youtube to mp3


hey all,

my cousin put on youtube some videos shot this summer of my nieces / nephews singing by the campfire; someone at work mentioned I can play them in my car if I get an application that converts them (they are on youtube) to mp3s.

Does anyone know a good linux app for converting youtube videos to mp3s? preferably freeware, I'm broke ;-)

tks! -red

Try using youtube-dl

Hi, find and install package youtube-dl in your particular distro. Once installed, open a terminal and type the following:

Code:
youtube-dl -f 18 "(put youtube URL of video you want to convert here"
and remember to keep the quotes around the URL. This particular format will download and convert the .mp4 format to your hard drive and then just use any media player to open and play it. Hope this helps.

wow, tks @younique; at the risk of sounding even more ignorant, how do I find the youtube-dl package for my distro (xubuntu); search online?

From the way you phrased the response, I get/got the sense that it may already be part of the distro I'm using ?!?!?

tks in advance; if other newbs need the help more, I can try to learn this stuff online.

cheers -red

You might try this link:

http://www.youtube-mp3.org/

The page is in German, but should be easy to use nonetheless. You simply put the url of the YouTube page into the textbox and press the button beneath. The thing starts converting and afterwards there's a link in the box that says 'Herunterladen'.

Click it to download the mp3.

Hope it works for you,

Traviata

@RedBullion, you are correct that it's already available to your distribution, Xubuntu. To install it most quickly, just open a terminal and type in:

Code:
sudo apt-get install youtube-dl
(FYI, Enter root's password as it asks afterwards, if not sure of what password to use)

Confirm the y/n prompt and it will download and install. Done. Then proceed to enter the first command and URL I posted earlier for each video you want to download. Here's the official URL for much more detailed info to get more in depth of this program's features, or find documentation, etc. http://rg3.github.io/youtube-dl/

Have fun.

interestingly enough, vlc can also do this, under 'media', pick,'convert/save', click the 'network' tab, paste in the youtube video's URL, click 'convert/save', select 'audio/mp3' under the 'settings' drop-down, enter a destination file and hit 'start'

In Firefox you go to tools select addons and on the search bar type youtube and it will list a bunch of addons that allow you to download youtube files to your hard drive. Select one of them and enjoy.

There in each addon listed appear a little brief description that you can read before you install so go ahead and read them to make sure they do what you are looking for

Good luck to you
