    Hi friends,

    I have a youtube video that is a tribute/interview of my grandmother, who unfortunately just passed away. YouTube has stripped the audio because on some parts of the video there is background music. I would really like to be able to watch/download this video with the audio - does anyone know a way to get around this?

    fwiw: I don't have the original file, and downloading the video via pwnYouTube results in a silent mp4 file.

    Thanks so much for your help.

    no i'm afraid not. I'm assuming this is the grandiose work of WMG that stripped the audio. Record companies are so dumb. sorry man

    Can't you have the original uploader send you the file on a DVD? You must obviously know him or her. I'm sure it won't be a big deal to get you an original. The quality is likely to be a whole lot better too than a grab from YouTube.

    I've thought of this, but the original file is proving hard to track down...

    Well, I'm afraid you are out of luck then since YT has effectively trashed the audio from this video.

    Next time, we can hope the poster doesn't upload copywritten music within his or her projects.

    He said it was background music. Absolutely ridiculous that it's been taken down for copyright if it's only background music!

    If you are posting music online without consent from the author, you are in violation of copyright law. You are using music without paying the author royalties. Doesn't matter if it features the music prominently or not.

    That's what makes the Mac platform so good...a few quick minutes with GarageBand and you are good to go with any type of royalty-free music you can devise!
