    What is the best youtube music converter? I want something that can take youtube video's with audio and convert it to something that my ipod can play

    Or would it be better to get something like limewire or frostwire?

    You might be disappointed...

    I did that same thing with a different program (www.youtube2mp3.com) and while it sounded great on my MBP, the audio on my nano was very bad. I have learned from my ways and bought a itunes card that has since been used up. I think I have 7 gigs out of the original 8 left. (It got me farther along than I thought. 45 songs, and almost 3 hours and 10 minutes of music.

    I use the program "All2MP3". It works great cause it not only converts youtube video, but it also converts damn near any other file format you can possibly think of. It's great :D I love it haha

    What was awful about it? If its the audio quality I found that searching through the various copies of the recording and looking for the one that sounds best.

    Some are poor copies of copies of poor copies if you get my drift....

    Look for the posting by the artist or from a tv performance maybe and pick Hi Quality in the conversion option

    input = output

    The sound output was aweful....

    It was all "jerky", but I am perfectly happy with my Itunes cards. Just 7 gigs left out of the original 8 on my nano. :)

    is converting youtube videos to mp3 piracy?

    if so its definitely against the forum rules to talk about it

    true but is this thread about ripping cds to itunes? and as long as piracy is allowed on this thread why wouldnt you just use the pirate bay? it would be easier and probably better quality.

    also windows firefox has an add-on that does that. im not sure if the mac version does or not. (i havnt used it since i discovered the pirate bay)

    Ripping a CD isn't necessarily considered piracy. It's assumed you OWN the CD, and if you OWN it, you can put the music on to the computer (files purchased off the internet of course are ok)

    Naturally, if you look at my iTunes library and my CD collection, well....

    True but is this thread about the legality of what the OP wants to do?

    i like http://www.zamzar.com
    it's really simple. they e-mail you the converted version of the file. like everyone else said, make sure you pick the HD or HQ version of the songs. if you get it from vevo, that's probably your best bet.
    oh and make sure you download the song from your e-mail that same day. the link to the download will expire in 24 hours.

    i wouldn't risk any P2P applications. protect your precious mac!
