:D

Seriously though, all the Youtube audio rippers suck ass. They only work half the time, and usually spit out a 128kbps file. If it's available, it's a better use of your time just to buy the song for a buck.

I've been using Freecorder for ages

The audio grabber takes a while to work sometimes (but when it does you can record anything you can hear from the internet)
but the YouTube downloader works perfectly every time so far.
