Something else you can do with Linux.

For Linux users only.

How to d/l videos from Youtube.

Open terminal:

First you have to install youtube-dl with this command:  sudo apt-get install youtube-dl

and give in your password.  When installed close terminal.

Go to youtube and search the video you want to download and copy the URL.

Open up terminal and type in:  youtube-dl(space) Video URL <-- Copy/paste the Video URL from the browser's navigation (address) bar into terminal and hit enter. Remember the space!

It will download to your Home folder.

Now for Linux and Windows users.
I imagine all here know this but just in case, if you want just the audio from a Youtube video copy/paste the url here and click "Convert". It will convert entire albums;-).

Thanks. Ghost.

I use two add-ons for downloading videos from anywhere and converting to mp3:
Flash and Video Download
Youtube Mp3 Downloader using youtube-mp3.org.

I'm very satisfied with them.
