There are many occasions when you come across a popular FLV file that you would like to have as audio. First let me discuss exactly what an FLV file is and how it works. An FLV file is nothing more than a Flash video. The reason this video format was created was to deliver video files over the Internet. FLV files were created by macromedia and have become the standard for delivering video files.
FLV files can also be embedded in SWF files. Some notable websites that send videos via FLV files are YouTube, Google Videos, Yahoo Videos, and Metacafe. Of these websites, YouTube is the largest provider of FLV files on the Internet.
Everyone knows that YouTube has the largest cache of videos online. They also have all kinds of videos. Live performances and news broadcasts. This is where we will see exactly how to convert your favorite FLV file to audio. We will use YouTube as the main example, as they are the most popular.
YouTube to MP3 converter is a very popular type of file conversion. One of the ways to convert YouTube to MP3 is a Firefox plugin. Firefox has a plugin that will allow the user to convert YouTube to MP3, however I will say a few things about it. The plugin does not produce quality MP3s. It seems to have a low quality default output. However, this is still an option.
The other option and I think the best way to convert YouTube to MP3 is online. There are all kinds of websites that will provide this service to you, but I narrowed the list down to two that provide this service with the least amount of user hassle. The first Youtube to MP3 They have a pretty friendly site with some conversion options. Low, Medium and High. I always select high and the mp3 seems to come out fine. The second converter is YouTubetomp3.com. This appropriately named site uses the same principles as the other. Basically you go to YouTube or your favorite FLV website and select the video you want. Copy the URL, then go to one of these sites and paste it into the converter. They will automatically convert it and send it to the download page.
