Ripping Youtube Videos to MP3 Using Command Prompt

When you found a good song from Youtube, you just gotta download it. But your just too lazy to use an online converter or download the video and convert it manually using a software.

  1. Download youtube-dl

  2. Use this command in command prompt or shell of your choice

    youtube-dl.exe --extract-audio --output "%(title)s.%(ext)s" --audio-format mp3 --audio-quality 0 INSERT_URL

  3. Replace INSERT_URL with Youtube video URL, eg.

youtube-dl.exe --extract-audio --output "%(title)s.%(ext)s" --audio-format mp3 --audio-quality 0 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1GHN9HyObSc

It will download the video and convert it to MP3 with the highest quality.
