Does anyone know how one can take the audio track from YouTube and save it as a mp3 file or equivalent, to transfer it to iTunes?

That's reasonably easy, actually. First you need a program to record the sound as it is playing. I use Sound Forge 9 from Sony, but there are a bunch of free or at least cheaper programs available. I like Sound Forge because I have used it for years both at work and at home. It does what I want it to with a minimum of fuss and is for the most part intuitive to use. I paid about $80 for my copy at Target and consider it well worth the money.

Audacity, a free program which is liked by many is available at download.com. http://www.download.com/Audacity/3000-2170_4-10058117.html?tag=3150&cdlPid=10606824

Start the recorder then start the youtube, preferably from a downloaded file, especially if you have buffering issues.

You may have to fiddle with your sound settings in order to get the recording program to recognize the sound playing through your speakers. My current computer is the first one that I had to make those changes. Earlier simpler ones were properly set in the first place.

If this doesn't get you started, we'll talk again.

Try SUPER from here but don't download it elsewhere - converts pretty much anything to anything (apart from rubbish into good music)

Hi, "Total Recorder" is an excellent & very inexpensive recorder. I use it to record "Listen again" radio shows & streaming audio. Just open it up, hit record & it records whatever is playing through your sound card.
Sound Forge is a great programme, but a lot more comlicated if all you want to do is record audio from You Tube.

Bernie, or ?

Once you use Total Recorder and record a mp3 file, then how do you import it into iTunes?

Yes, I wonder how many folks follow the mob and buy the overpriced and overhyped iplayer. I have a Sansa Clip player, which plays FLAC and WAV files as well as mp3 etc - currently £39 in Currys Digital. It holds roughly 20 hours of music in lossless format.

Audio Hijack Pro will capture any sound stream coming out of your system, save ti to a file.

Any MP3, WAV, AIFF or CD track can be imported into iTunes once you have it saved.
File==>Add to Library, or just drag and drop the file onto iTunes.

I use Wire Tap Studio on aq Mac. There's an option to export direct to iTunes once you've recorded something. If one was minded to record from Spotify (which would, of course, be very wrong), the application can do that as well.

I think zamzar is the simplest--it's free and you don't need to get any software--the link to the converted file comes to the email address you give.

Replay A/V is from Applian

i can't wspeak the tjhe i-tunes issue,
but this makes it easy to capture/record
and convert / save files.

To olddude: To import your MP3 to iTunes, just drag-and-drop the MP3 entry in Finder onto the iTunes icon (or open iTunes app). If you mean, how do you save the file from Audacity as an MP3, then go to the Audacity File menu and select "Export..."; this allows you to save the file in various formats. You may have to download and install the LAME converter library first, and tell Audacity where the library is located (some setting in Preferences). If you just save the project, it will NOT be in MP3 format, and you can't import the project to iTunes. I normally export to MP3, then close the project without saving it. You can, of course, export from any Audacity project you previously created, so even if you missed this step earlier, you don't have to re-record to get an MP3.

Sadly, since the MP3 was created with Audacity, if you double-click in Finder to open the MP3, it will start Audacity rather than iTunes, and create a new project using the MP3 as the initial source--not what most folks really want as default behavior; bad design flaw. You can, of course, change the default application for the MP3 file to iTunes, QuickTime or some other application (through the More Info option in Finder), but it can get tedious to do that for each file. However, once you've dragged the MP3 into iTunes, it's in your library (at least under "Music"), so you never have to open it from Finder.

Alternatively you can right click or CMD click on the file and choose "Open with..." and tell it to open it with iTunes.

On my Mac, download the youtube file with Tooble or Safari. there's other ways too.
Open on Quicktime Player, export as aif. Drop into iTunes, save as MP3.

You can use some YouTube Music Downloader to help you downoad youtube audio on computer, and then sync them with your iTunes. I got lots of music in this way. lol

I download the video, then open it with Amazing Slow Downer, which extracts the audio. From there, you can export it as an mp3 and take it into itunes. Kind of a kludge, but only takes a couple of minutes.

You just paste in the urls, then sit back and let the program do all the work.

You can create AAC's/mp3's from audacity files even without Lame.

Export your audacity file as an Aiff. Then drag the Aiff file into itunes.

Go to your itunes preferences and click on "general" on top. In this pane, hit the button that says "import settings."

The next window will have a pulldown menu that says "import using" and select AAC or mp3 encoder.

After selecting the right choice in the menu, click "ok." Close out of the preferences window.

Back in the itunes library, highlight the song you want to convert. Go up to "advanced" on the menu bar, and highlight "create AAC" or create mp3."

Once the file has been converted, you can delete the original Aiff from your itunes library.

I'm not 100% sure, but I think the resulting mp3 or AAC file will open in itunes automatically, even if you don't open it in the library.

Firefox add-on Download Helper will download and extract the audio from You Tube videos as mp3.

Either go to Firefox website, click on add-on tab and search for "DownloadHelper" (all one word) or go to their own website http://www.downloadhelper.net/ where there is a link to install the extension.

The YouTube MP3 converter website that T-Bright recommended works easily, quickly and perfectly for me.

You just copy the URL of the YouTube video and paste it into the online converter and it makes an mp3 for you. You don't need to install any software to do this.
