View Full Version : No audio after downloading and converting youtube videos

11-17-2009, 08:26 PM
I have tried various ways to download youtube videos (download helper via firefox, vixy.net) but every time I download and convert, there is no audio. Regardless of what format I convert it to. Is there a trick to downloading/converting a youtube video WITH audio? Thanks.

What type/quality are you downloading it as before conversion? Is there audio before you convert it?

I use the youtube downloader, a standalone application and it works just dandy.

I use YouTube to MP3 Firefox Add on and never have any issue with it

you may just be missing an audio codec

Download this codec pack if you haven't already http://www.free-codecs.com/download/k_lite_codec_pack.htm

When downloading video's from youtube I found that it is best to use a firefox extension to do it. I use "Easy Youtube Video Downloader". It downloads the file as an .flv. I then use "Total Video Converter" to convert it to a usable format.

I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

They might be right about the codec issue. I just use the realplayer downloading tool to download videos off YT. It's pretty easy and it also lets you convert to .wmv and other formats
