Does anyone have any experience in the above or know of a program or website that works & does not try to install malicious software of virus's on to your pc ?

I do not wish to use Tube Mate as this is a video down-loader I want to be able to to download just the audio so I can listen to some conspiracy's whilst I drive my truck for further research.

You shouldn't need to. There are lots of ways of streaming Youtube as long as you have wifi. If you just want audio then Youtube is the wrong place to start. Have a look at Spotify or iTube as a start point. If you genuinely need more than they can give you on mp3 then you really should be buying albums (y)

Oddly enough I asked my 16 year old tonight as I needed some stuff for the upcoming meet.

He showed me how to do the audio but doing the video is not easy and requires software purchased or as you say malowared to death.

The starting point is wrong. Youtube is video. MP3 is audio only. Trying to convert video to audio is pointless. Find what you want in an audio format and convert that.

Audacity is a free program which will record whatever is coming out of the speakers on your pc. Just start it up and then play the track on YouTube. Audacity will record it in its own format but it will also make a copy in mp3 or indeed more or less any other format you might want.

It is an open source program and quite safe but check when downloading it and clear any check boxes for free offererings such as Google toolbar.

You can get it safely from here:

Kind of reminds me of when I was a kid trying to record radio programs & not making any noise :D

You can set the source on audacity, microphone etc. Just ensure you have sound notifications turned off otherwise you might get a beep if you get an email!

But if there is a specific way to download the sound directly from YouTube with the link thebig1 gives that would be better. Audacity just has the advantage it works with anything which comes out of your speakers, such as Internet radio. The disadvantage is you have to listen in real time to make the recording. But it is easy to edit the track afterwards and remove any bits you don't want.

For many years I have used dvdsoft studios...............you can download as a video or as you said just the audio in MP3 version............................many radio shows on You tube that have give hours of listening.You also don't need to record in real time.

Not found any malware but when you install it does try to install all kinds of partner software............select the custom install and be careful what you agree to.

Thanks I will ok into these....

So yestery day I downloaded the DVDSOFT webby1 suggested but just to be on the the safe side as I couldnt just scan the .exe file I initiated a full system scan before I went to bed.
Ive not long finished installing it via custom settings 4 of which to prevent any non wanted files & browser extensions being installed & gave it a try.
Test run the mp3 & this works fine & changed the output folder to one of MY choice & it looks good easy to use & relativley quick so we will see.

I would use Audacity as previously mentioned. Very flexible and high quality possible.
