    Re: HOWTO: Download YouTube Stereo MP3s

    Well...i couldn't get this thing to work so i found an alternate .
    Programs called "Sound Recorder".It records what ever sound your computer is outputting here is the code to install it

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install sound-recorder
    after you done installing it go to (did mine with 7.04)
    Applications>>>Sound&Audio>>> Sound Recorder

    go to youtube.com,stream a video with sound

    Open up sound Recorder

    Record from input: MIX
    Record As:CD quality, lossless .OGG

    hit record as soon as the video starts playing or or record 3 secs earlier before the video starts to play once your done recording.
    File>>Save as>> <name>.ogg

    have fun

    Why don't you explain why it didn't work. I bet I can unstick you. Also, note that the audio you download from YouTube is mono, not stereo, and that my script used a tool to simulate stereo as well from the sound file.

    I just can't seem to get it to work. I tried running the latest version, and it just crashes when I try downloading anything. Any ideas?

    Okay, try this:

    * Are you using the script version or the version with the GUI? Try the version with the script, first, and that way we can see the error result.

    * Have you installed the requirements as mentioned for the script?

    * I had this problem, previously, when we were using an alternative means to capture that FLV file. We fixed that and now we have a line that points to rd.cache.l.google.com for the FLV. That seems to work.

    * When I see your error result from the script, I'll be able to suggest the fix. It might be a requirements or permission problem.

    Thanks.
    Perhaps it's the video. Does this happen with all the YouTube videos you try? If so, then tell me what version of Ubuntu you have. If not, then shoot me the URL for the YouTube video and I'll see what happens on my system. Also, how do other MP3 files play on your system -- do they work okay or have static and beeping too?

    Are you using a 64bit version of Ubuntu?

    Do you have a multi-processor or non-Intel kind of processor?

    What kind of sound card do you have?

    Re: HOWTO: Download YouTube Stereo MP3s

    Yeah, this happens with all the videos I try, I'm running the standard (Not 64 bit) Feisty Fawn. Here's the URL for the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uWvrtA-UV0c. Other mp3s play fine.

    I have an Intel Pentium 4. It's not multi-core, but it's got hyperthreading, so Ubuntu treats it as if it has two cores.

    My sound card is SB Audigy2, by Creative Labs.

    Thanks.

    Re: HOWTO: Download YouTube Stereo MP3s

    I tried your URL and with non-64 Feisty on a P4 system just like yours except that I have a sound from the Dell motherboard. I used the project from here...

    http://code.google.com/p/yt2mp3/

    ...and made certain I followed the requirements instructions:

    * xulrunner - retrieve from Mozilla.com
    * ffmpeg
    * lame
    * mpg123
    * mpeg codecs++
    * ecasound
    ++ = get this simply by viewing the video in Firefox on YouTube's site and then get the mpeg codec for MP3 playback.

    I did this on 3 different kinds of PCs and the result was all the same. It always converted it into a simulated stereo MP3 and not chirps, whistles, and static, but real sound. Sounds like something's still not right in your OS or perhaps with a funky setting in the BIOS. Try another comparable (or perhaps not comparable) PC and see if that helps.

    BTW, are you overclocking?

    Perhaps your sound card has an IRQ or DMA issue?

    What do you mean by "viewing the video in Firefox on YouTube's site"? I think that might be what I'm doing wrong. Am I supposed to be viewing the video while the program is running?
