How to Record Sound off of Youtube Videos
How to Record Sound Off Youtube Videos For Free
I've been spending a lot of time on YouTube lately watching a lot of music videos that play my favorite songs. It occurred to me that maybe there was a way to record the sound off the YouTube videos and save them as MP3's. So I did a bit of online research on what tools where available and found a pretty nifty one that plugs right into your browser--one that allows you to simply click a button at the top of your browser window when you want to record a sound off a YouTube video.
It's called Freecorder and you can get it here:
Simply go to the link above, download the software, install it, and you will be able to record sound off YouTube videos very quickly. Best of all, it's completely easy to use, and 100% free. In case you get a little confused about how to use it, I've put a basic demonstration below.
Once you install it, open up your browser. At the top you should see the Freecorder bar that looks like this:
Now go to YouTube and find the video that you would like to record the sound off of.
Simply push the button on the Freecorder bar that I have circled in the image below.
A little window with a radio wave going across it pops up and lets you know that it is recording.
Close it when the video is over and it will save the audio as a Mp3 file. Go into your Freecorder folder (where ever you saved it when you installed it on your computer) and you will find a newly created Mp3 file that recorded the sound off the YouTube video.
