How To Strip Audio From YouTube Videos

Filed under: technology — d April 18, 2007 @ 10:43 pm


I just found the best and easiest resource for stripping audio from YouTube videos. I hate having to download a piece of software for something I'll probably need to do only once. So instead I looked for a site that would do it for me, and voila I found one: www.vixy.net.

Just plug in the URL for the video page and in a minute or two you've got yourself a nice mp3.

One word of caution: the video I stripped was 3 mins 15 secs long, but the mp3 file shows 27 mins when I plugged it into my iTunes library. No matter to me, it still plays just fine and goes on to the next song when the 3 mins 15 sec is over.

And no, I wasn't stripping anything that I could have bought on CD or online. Well, maybe I could have bought it if I was in Romania.

Here's the song I was stripping. It's the wonderful 3-year-old Cleopatra Stratan singing "Ghita." That's Romanian, by the way. My new favorite language!

 
 

Here are the lyrics:

Romanian lyrics:

Hainita sta in cui
Afara soare nu-i
Nimic nu-i bun de cand
Ma gandesc la Ghita
Dar Ghita nu-i in sat
Eu m-am interesat
Imi pare ca-i plecat
Dupa granita...
Greu, tare mi-i de greu,
Vreau, da nu stiu ce vreau;
Stiu ca si tu ma placi
Spune, Ghita, ce tu taci?
Ori vina ori ti du
Ori spune da ori nu
Eu te rog nu ma-nerva
Ghita ce-i cu viata ta?

REF: Ghita, te-astept diseara la portita
Langa portita de la scoala
Vino da numa nu vini cum vii tu
De obicei cu mana goala
Cine te mai asteapta ca si mine
O seara intreaga numai pe tine.
Ghita, arata-mi tu o fata care
Sa te iubeasca asa de tare!

Ghita, te-astept diseara la portita
Langa portita de la scoala
Vino da numa nu vini cum vii tu
De obicei cu mana goala
Cine te mai asteapta ca si mine
O seara intreaga numai pe tine.
Ghita, arata-mi tu o fata care
Sa te iubeasca asa de tare!

Ghita, te-astept diseara la portita
Langa portita de la scoala
Vino da numa nu vini cum vii tu
De obicei cu mana goala
Cine te mai asteapta ca si mine
O seara intreaga numai pe tine.
Ghita, arata-mi tu o fata care
Sa te ïubeasca asa de tare!


Lyrics translated in English:

My coat is on the hook
The sun seems to be doomed
And nothing’s really good.
I often think of Ghita…
But Ghita’s not in town
I know, I’ve asked around
It seems that he is gone
To get provisions…

Hard, it has been very hard
Want, but don’t know what I want
Of me, I know you too are fond…
Tell me, Ghita what is up?
Or come, or please go
Or tell me what to do
So please, don’t make me mad
Ghita, what’s up in your life?

REF:

Ghita, I’ll wait for you my dear Ghita
Tonight, at our place, do come,
But when you come don’t come as you do…
Usually, empty handed, who else
Is gonna wait for you as I do?…
A whole night, just for you my Ghita?
Show me just one other girl who
Can love you as much as I do!

Ghita, I’ll wait for you my dear Ghita
Tonight, at our place, do come,
But when you come don’t come as you do…
Usually, empty handed, who else
Is gonna wait for you as I do?…
A whole night, just for you my Ghita?
Show me just one other girl who
Can love you as much as I do!
