There are many occasions where 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 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 video file delivery. FLV files may also be embedded in SWF files as well. Some notable Websites that deliver video through FLV files is YouTube, Google video, Yahoo video and Metacafe. Of these websites YouTube being the biggest supplier of FLV files on the internet.
Everyone knows YouTube has the largest cache of video online. They have all kinds of videos as well. Live performances and news broadcasts. This is where we will get into exactly how to convert your favorite FLV file into audio. We will use YouTube as the primary example since they are the most popular. YouTube to Mp3 conversion is a very popular type of file conversion. One of the ways to cnvert YouTube to Mp3 is a firefox addon. Firefox has an add on that will allow the user to convert YouTube to Mp3 however I will say a few things about that. The Add on does not produce quality Mp3’s. It seems it has a default low quality output. However this is still an option.
The other option and I think it is the best way to convert YouTube to Mp3 is online. There are all kinds of websites that will do this service for you but I narrowed down the list to two that provide this service with the least amount of hassle to the user. First YouTube to Mp3 converter is Makeitmp3.com. They have a pretty user friendly site with a few conversion options. Low, Medium and high. I always select high and the mp3 seems to come out fine. The second converter is YouTubetomp3.com. Appropriately named this 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 either one of these sites and paste the URL into the converter. They will convert it automatically and send you to the download page.
A few words of advice for rendering the highest quality Mp3. No matter what method you decide to use for your YouTube to Mp3 file conversion ensure you select the highest quality Video you can. By selecting the highest quality video you will get the highest quality Mp3. Even if you select a high quality conversion from one of these sites. If your video file is low quality the Mp3 can only be equal to or lesser quality. Hope this helps.
