How do I extract a song from a youtube video?

The movie has been uploaded to youtube, but I don’t want to download the entire the movie. All I want to do is convert a couple minutes of the audio track into an mp3 file so I can burn it onto a CD. Is this possible? I have Windows Vista, and I believe I installed Audacity from the .exe installer.

Yes, you can use the Capture Sound Playing on the computer.

Not all computers can do this, so you may need to add software – and the whole process happens in real time. It’s not like downloading a file.


Thanks! I’ll check it out.
