    Install one or the other and follow the instructions that come with the app.

    What does this have to do with a MacBook Air?

    I'd say at a guess because that's the platform he wants to do the extracting on ;)

    first of all, I messed up I meant I have a macbook air. Second of all, I'm a chick. I don't know **** about computers.... so thats why I am asking. So thanks.... I don't really know what to do


    watch your mouth.

    Thanks for perpetuating the assumption the being a "chick" means you can't know what you're doing on a computer.

    This is not a hardware question. You should go ask one of the software forums. "Digital Audio" might be a good place to start: http://forums.macrumors.com/forumdisplay.php?f=81

    I don't need to watch my mouth. It's a known abbreviation (RTFM), which is really accurate since most people don't even read the manual and expect everything to be fun and easy and be served in a gold plate before them.
    Anyway, to your question:
    Download iExtractMP3.
    This is an app that converts flash videos to mp3 music files.
    The flash videos can be downloaded from safari. When you're in a youtube video, press CMD+Option (alt)+A. This will bring up the activity window of Safari. Search there for a big file (2mb-5mb, maybe even 10 or more), which will be the video. Then you can drag&drop the file you want into the download window of safari (which I don't know the shortcut too, but you can open it from the tools or something).
    Ok. Your file started downloading. Now convert it with iExtractMP3.
