i need help downloading the ffpmeg file that turns the nfiles to audio so that i can record. the youtube videos do not work, they are not acurite videos
Please see: Installing FFmpeg - Audacity Support
Just to be clear, FFmpeg isn’t for “downloading” or “recording” from YouTube or other online audio./video.
If you have already downloaded a file to your hard drive (like an MP4 audio/video file, etc.) then FFmpeg allows Audacity to decompress and open the audio.
Recording Internet audio as it’s playing does not require FFmpeg.
