Importing from YouTube

Hello, and TIA for help! I’ve used Audacity successfully in the past to clip short excerpts from longer videos on YouTube. I’d like to do it again, but I’m stymied at the very first step: I can’t remember how I got the file from YouTube to my computer… I’d even be happy with just the audio part. This has to be something easy, since I figured it out once before, but… Thanks for help!!

This tutorial in the Manual should help you with the audio part:

But Audacity is purely an audio editor so will not help you with the video clips …
