Recording audio from YouTube

How do I record the audio portion of a YouTube video?

Additional info:
Using Windows 7, Audacity 2.0.5

we wrote a thing about how to do that.


I finally got Audacity to record the audio from YouTube videos using the link you supplied. Now I have a different problem: I discovered that to get a decent size waveform I have to set the YouTube volume almost to max, which about blows me out of the room. My question: How do I get a normal size waveform during record and at the same time set the speaker volume to a lower output?

Forget my last post. I just finished reading the rest of the tutorial.

You might find the free service at Peggo quite handy.
