Freepathon donation in your name for technical assistance on MP3 files.

How many of you realize how great a forum Free Republic really is not only as a home for conservatives, but a home for technical information as well?

For the first Freeper who can help me download only an excerpt of a Youtube video clip into an MP3 file, I will donate to the current Freepathon in YOUR name.

We all know there are forums out there who allow you to donate to get information on computer assistance, auto repair and virtually everything imaginable.

But we have some of the brightest people on this forum and I want to make a donation to Free Republic for the first successful instruction on how to download an EXCEPT of a video file (such as You Tube) as opposed to the who thing.


TOPICS: Chit/Chat; Computers/Internet; Music/Entertainment; Society
KEYWORDS: clip; download; excerpts; video
Please give a good example. For instance, I want to only download the last 35 seconds of a You Tube video or, let's say, the clip from 2:09 to 3:24 on a particular video.

vidtomp3.com at the link gives good directions on how to get the whole thing. But I just want a particular excerpt.

Go to “Add ons” in Firefox and get a program called “Easy Youtube Video Downloader”.

You can do some pretty things with this program.

Good luck.

Do a search for “save YouTube” on google. There are websites such as keepvid or something like that where you can save the YouTube video. Once you paste in the url, and accept the java widget to run, you are given an option to download the audio. Good luck!

Might take a few steps but.

Download entire youtube video, the output is usually a flv file.

The edit that file with one of the file editing programs out there, to the length you want, have it remain as a flv file.

Then you convert said flv file into a mp3, with one of the many converters out there. I know this is a few steps, but I'm unsure if there some all in one program for ya.

If you have a Mac and run snow leopard or better, Search online and install the Safari extension “ClickToFlash.

Once imply installed, you can then download virtually any and every video you want on youtube. Then using free quicktime, you can use “trim” to get what you want in a matter of seconds.

I made this 52 second clip from a YouTube video, for my iPhone.

I used videograbber to obtain the video and then the free version of videopad to edit. Finally, I emailed it to myself for my iPhone5.

It's funny.

Your link did a great job in excerpting the video which I wanted here: http://www.tubechop.com/watch/881025

Now, I am working on downloading the software needed to convert it to an MP3 file. It wouldn't do it directly on the file at the link at the top of this thread.

YouTube MP3 Podcaster (add-on) reportedly downloads MP3s from videos, if you use Firefox. Also says it has a way to clip files. If you use Firefox, click on “tools,” then “add-ons.”

Are you just after the audio (mp3) or audio and video?

If you just want the audio, you can record the whole thing with "Ask and Record Toolbar" and then crop the part that you want out of the mp3 using "Audacity". Both are freeware.

Not yet. One of the suggested downloads gave me a nasty adware virus and I spent most of last night cleaning it up.

So it’s not actually on Youtube? It’s on TubeChop?

The TubeChop except originally came from YouTube:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=83qxmqAI768

The chop is from the 9:01 mark in the video until the end (9:41, I think). It is a 40 second sound clip I need for another project.

To: Theoria; everyone
You are the winner! Thank you for everyone who contributed suggestions, but, in the end, www.clipconverter.cc was, by far the simplest to use:
  1. Open the URL
  2. Enter the YouTube link in full (didn't work for www.tubechop.com)
  3. Enter the excerpt time wanted.
  4. Download into an MP3 file.

No additional software to download. No freeware containing adware viruses. No frustrations of multiple file manipulations and removing junk from your computer.

Please Freepmail me if you want the donation to go in any other name than Theoria. Otherwise, it will go to JimRob within the next 72 hours.
