Getting audio off youtube?


#1

What do you use to download audio off youtube?
Just want to get some samples


#2

These two sites



#3

If you are a (happy) Mac or Linux user, it is easy to install and use youtube-dl which does everything what one could come up with in this context. Unfortunately, for Win users I suppose it is not trivial to install it.


#4

On mac, soundflower.

On Windows, look up VB Audio Cable

Audacity works well with both, but getting VB straight into FL studio seems to always be a pain in the arse for me.

it’s still ez on windows, just download the standalone exe then do shit like:

list formats:
.\youtube-dl -f https://youtube.com/videourl

download highest quality:
.\youtube-dl -f best https://youtube.com/videourl

either add the exe to your PATH (google this) or go to the folder with the exe, hold shift, right click, open powershell/cmd window here, then run the command you want. no need for the .\ bit if you’re not on win10

will probably need to install ffmpeg if you wanna do shit like auto convert to mp3 and stuff

youtube-dl is sick. only criticism is that it’s named badly. it supports about a million sites https://rg3.github.io/youtube-dl/supportedsites.html

or yea just record a clip using audacity
