Dear @adam and @Johncdvorak I wanted you to know that @PhoneBoy and I just got off the phone together. I needed a motivational "go get em" and he was awesome. NA brother love should have production credits! I feel like a new man! Huzzah!

@PakkonenCT youtube-dl handles most of that for you. Usually can use a -f 140 to get a .m4a audio only file out of it. use -F option to see what formats are available. Also anything you can play in PotPlayer can be recorded as audio or video right off its menus. VLC is a bit more cumbersome to use for clipping from but can do it all too.

FFMPEG is the core engine of most tools & you can cmdline option it a lot too.

@TurdFerguson @Klaatu @PakkonenCT I've searched "youtube mp3 converter" to get an online converter that works before.

@HiroProtagonist @TurdFerguson @Klaatu
Mostly trying to avoid installing all that third party extra shit that some try and bundle

@PakkonenCT @HiroProtagonist @TurdFerguson Most linux systems' package managers know how to install youtube-dl by name. Otherwise its just python code (minimal extra shit) and the windows version is a standalone .exe of that code so you don't have to install python under windows.

Yeah @moshguy my 3rd url is to the page listing those 150+ sites yt-dl knows how to fetch from.

grab & install youtube-dl for your OS, play w/it for familiarity. It will make sense and then ask your next question.

@PakkonenCT @HiroProtagonist @TurdFerguson @moshguy You can ask DDG "m4a to mp3"
duckduckgo.com/?q=m4a+to+mp3

and find a bunch of sites to turn a .m4a into an .mp3 if you need to
or run it thru ffmpeg.exe if its installed.

ffmpeg -i myfilein.m4a myfileout.mp3

ffmpeg.org/download.html
Bear in mind a lot of tools like VLC install their own ffmpeg you just need 1 compiled with codecs for m4a and mp3 or install an official distribution which comes with tons of them.

@PakkonenCT @HiroProtagonist @TurdFerguson @moshguy
This .bat script to tell VLC to convert .m4a to .mp3 folder at a time
gist.github.com/navinpai/13890

vlc -I dummy -vvv %1 --sout={acodec="mp3",ab="192","channels=2",samplerate="44100"}:standard{access="file",mux="raw",dst="%1.mp3"} vlc://quit

will convert a file, replace %1 with the .m4a filename in both places and run it off the command line.

A bit pricey

What is the purpose of filling up a water bottle to the top? It always spills on you

What do you guys use for capturing and cutting up youtube videos for audio conversions?

In 1950, the US military conducted a test to see whether San Francisco's fog could be used to help spread a biological weapon in a "simulated germ-warfare attack." ...This was just the start of many such tests around the country that would go on in secret for years.
