Script Summary: Download audio content (in mp3 format) from youtube videos with the click of a button!
(UPDATED 2013/12/21 - Working again!
--Script was stuck in an infinite loop - a required variable wasn't being set on some (dead) links on youtube-mp3.org's page. Why these links are suddenly here? I don't know. Script now cycles through and searches for the live link.
(NEWS 2013/12/2 - Please be aware that a spammer is copying script titles and putting malicious code in their source. Make sure that the copy you're downloading is legitimate! As for my script, it's the one with 20k downloads and does NOT need to include Facebook in the source!)
(UPDATED 2013/10/04 - works again! youtube-mp3 removed direct linking, had to create a workaround)
This script adds a button to Youtube videos which will automatically prompt a download, in MP3 format, of the audio from that corresponding video. No redirects, no new tabs.
It uses the www.youtube-mp3.org service to accomplish this. Note that if an mp3 can't be converted by their service (aka because of copyright restrictions), this will not be able to download it either. Sorry Google's being a pansy :(
I love it already!
Please comment, rate etc! Let me know if this script worked for you, whether you liked it, and how I may improve on it! I'm interested in what you think :)
This script has been tested and works fine in Firefox, Chrome and Opera!
NOTE: Google Inc (which owns Youtube) has been working to shut down services which convert Youtube videos to mp3 files. If you find these services and/or this script useful, and wish to be able to continue using them freely, please sign the petition below!
