1) Hook one computer's sound output to the sound input of another computer.
2) Play YouTube video.
3) Record on 2nd computer.
4) Save as mp3.

Suck it, YouTube.


1) Select "Stereo Mix" in control panel
2) Select wav as recording device in control panel
3) Open "Audacity" or other recording software
4) Play youtube video
5) Press record
6) Save as mp3

Suck it, newb

I added a couple of steps you missed. I knew about that method already. I bypassed it because since it's software based, the music gestapo could probably figure out a way to kill that off too. Of course they could kill off any recording capability of computers if they really wanted to, but there's always tape if you really want to go old school. My point was: as long as you can hear it, you can copy it. I was using a bit of snark.

swahnhennessy: They deserve it for naming their software something that dumb. There's plenty of other ways to do it, though I don't know why you'd want to.

I've wanted to show video clips to my classes a couple times but youtube and other streaming video sites are heavily locked down by the district. Sometimes the network can get slow.

Whenever I show clips now, I like to download them ahead of time to eliminate any problems that might come up.

Once you send the 1s and zeros to someone, they can and will be replicated with ease.

So what about the creators of browser plugins that do the same thing? Will Google block any browser with downloadhelper or similar add-ons from their websites?
