Ubuntu Convert YouTube Video to MP3

Having recently heard an acoustic version of VV Brown’s Shark in the Water I wanted an audio file I could listen to until it is released in 2 weeks. There was an acoustic version in a London Cab on Youtube so:

  • I grabbed the youtube video using youtube-dl (get it with Synaptic)

    youtube-dl “http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kcgffz72b_8”

  • I then used WinFF (get it with Synaptic) to convert the FLV file to an MP3
  • I then used Audacity (get it with Synaptic) to trim the audio file and add a fade at the end
