How To Get Free Music From Youtube, Google Video, etc...

First to download the videos you need this Firefox extension: Video Downloader For Firefox.

Next find a video with music that you want. Download it by clicking on the downloader box on the lower right corner of the browser. This will save the video on your hard drive as a .flv file.

Now download ffmpeg for Ubuntu. Now issue this command in a terminal:

ffmpeg -i DownloadedFile.flv -ab 128 -ar 44100 DownloadedFile.mp3

Now you have an mp3. To convert it to a .wav file download soundconverter for Ubuntu. Open it up. Add the file you want to convert. Click Edit->Preferences and change the result to .wav. Now you will have a brand new shinny .wav file you can burn to a cd which you got from your favorite song off of a Youtube/Google video.

PS you probably shouldn't do this since it may break some law. This was just a for your information post.
