How to Rip Audio From Youtube | Extract Audio From FLV Video
Here’s a question we received a while ago: how to extract audio from Youtube video? On some occassions, people don’t just watch youtube, they listen to it. Instead of having to load the video every time when you just want to listen to the music, you can extract a piece of audio file from the youtube video. Instructions in this post will guide you on how to extract audio from a FLV formatted video, and how to download video in FLV format from Youtube (so that you can extract the audio from it).
If you already have a FLV file and want its audio to be extracted
Most of the FLV video players (or whatever video players that support flv videos) we know, do not have any built in function to rip the audio from flv video. Here we’ll show you several tools that are specifically designed to do the extracting job for you.
FLV Audio Extractor
FLV Audio Extractor, as what its name implies, is simple tool that lets you extract audio from any flv formatted video. It supports batch extraction which means you can extract more than just 1 video at a time. All extracted audios will be in MP3 format. It is a freeware, so you can download and use it legally for free. It supports Windows 7, Windows Vista and Windows XP.

FLV Extract is a portable and simple-to-use freeware that can rip audio from any flv file you drag and drop onto it. It will begin the extraction automatically when you give it a flv file. With this software, not only you can extract audio, but you can also choose to extract video, timecodes and audio at a same time from a flv file. Its only weak point is that it doesn’t support batch extraction. You will have to repeat the extraction if you have multiple files to be extracted. It supports Windows 7, Windows Vista and Windows XP.

If you haven’t downloaded any flv video yet, here’s how you can download video from Youtube
There’re lots of tools you can use to download videos from Youtube. Most of these tools also support other video sites like Hulu, Dailymotion, Metacafe, Megavideo, MySpace Video, Yahoo! Video, etc. Two of such tools we recommend are SaveVid.com and KeepVid.com. Both of them are online based downloader. You just have to enter a video link and click the download button. The service provided by these sites are completely free. So if you come across any site that requires you to pay for either downloading their videos or using their service, do not pay anything to them.
