It could be that I have the mencoder.exe file packed into the video2mp3.exe file.

I am glad I found this post. I am always trying to find the best site to rip Mp3 audio. I have used a few of these conversion websites but they always want me to fill out an annoying survey or something. I did find few sites that do this online. Youtubetomp3.com appropriately named does free Youtube to Mp3 conversion. And Makeitmp3.com. Has anyone used the firefox add on for Mp3 conversion? Also does anyone know where you can rip Mp4 out of Youtube video? I can't seem to find a site that does that. Mp3 will not work with my ipod :mad:

I can add mp4 output capabilities to Video2MP3.  Maybe we'll have to call it Video2MP#.  =]

Hmmm...now that I think about it.  Are you wanting something that will convert the YouTube video to an MP4 video?  Or, do you want something that will extract the audio portion only of a YouTube video to MP4 format?

As an aside, I thought all iPods could play MP3s?  My daughter's Nano plays them just fine.

Also...there are PLENTY of coverter apps that will take a YouTube Flash video (FLV) and convert them to MP4 and M4A formats.  I'm not sure I really need to re-invent the wheel here...

You own video2mp3.net? About the ipod it seems mine will not work with the Mp3. Only Mp4. Strange

No, I don't own http://video2mp3.net.  I wrote a standalone application (that has the same name) that you can get here:

I looked at your app. Very easy to use and efficient.

@skwire: Yes, thanks for this. I have just tried it out. It's the sort of thing that you don't know you might need until you try it.

I have a dock item for Video2MP3 in LaunchBar Commander on to which I drop video files, but then to look at the results, end up opening the directory containing Video2MP3.exe.

Thought it might be convenient for the created audio files to end up somewhere else.

Two obvious possibilities:

  • the directory containing the video files (my preference)
  • some user-specifiable fixed location

What do you think?

I was thinking it'd be nice to hear some sound when Video2MP3 completed, so I tried something like:

Code: [Select]
Video2MP3.exe somemediafile.avi && mplayer.exe somemediafile.mp3

but didn't have much luck -- mplayer.exe starts up before Video2MP3 finishes.

Any ideas on getting this sort of thing to work?

Tried using Video2MP3.exe from cmd.exe:

Quote
C:\TEMP>Video2MP3.exe some.avi

Processing seemed to happen but didn't find an mp3 file in C:\TEMP (this is with Video2MP3.exe and a suitable config.ini in C:\TEMP).  After looking around a bit, found it in C:\.  Do others confirm this sort of thing happens in their environments too?

I realize that readme.txt has:

Quote
    1) Drag & drop a video file or files onto this executable file.

But perhaps it could work from the command line too?

Without looking, I'm going to bet that providing the full path to the video file will make it work how you'd like.

Seems like it was a good bet as that worked here.

Is that good enough for your purposes?  (Honest question...I'm not trying to be a cheeky bastard  :D
