    I was converting a 2-part piece from YouTube to Mp3. The first part, which was 18 minutes, worked successfully, but part 2, which is around 22 minutes would not convert to mp3. I tried several sites and none worked.

    Wondering if there is a 20 minute limit on doing this???

    Any recommendations on a site I can sue which will work?

    Thanks!

    Audacity can record anything your computer is playing .... until your HDD gets full

    Cool. So will it convert to mp3 like I am used to doing? I just want to eventually store my files on itunes and Windows Media.

    Thanks.

    To have Audacity export the audio to mp3 ..
    You must download the "lame_enc.dll" file from HERE .... (lame v3.99.3)
    and place it in the Audacity program folder.
    The first time you export to mp3 ... Audacity will ask where you put it :D

    Not going well. I tried the online video converter and that didn't work.

    Tried Pazera and there are many links to choose from. Not sure which one.

    I'm running Windows 7

    Downloaded Audacity and the Lame and it is totally confusing.

    I'm just looking for a simple program to convert a 22 minute piece of music from YouTube to mp3. Any more help appreciated

    I don't understand your question. I'm not too advanced with this, so am looking for someone that can explain this and walk me through it step by step.

    As I indicated in the OP, I'm having trouble converting a YouTube file to mp3 and suspect that the problem is that the file is too long (22 in.). Just did one successfully that was 18 min.

    The Audacity is totally confusing. Pazera had many links, not sure which one works, also confusing.

    Came here for help, so appreciate any advise for someone that's not advanced.

    Thanks.

    What problem occurred?

    Do you have the file saved in pc?

    Can you provide a link to the video you want to convert?

    You can also try a screen recorder to record the sound of the video you are playing.

    The problem was a generic message saying that the download was unsuccessful. Tried it on a few other conversion sites with the same result. Again, the 18 minute file (Part 2 of what I'm trying to save), worked easily.

    Did not save file to PC, but here's the link: I always just cut and paste when I do the conversion.

    Not sure how to do screen recorder; my computer skills are just basic, so I usually have good luck getting help here.

    Just trying to update my ipod! Thanks!

    So it's the link? Let me try some other files over 20 minutes and see what happens. Thanks.

    There also may be the same music on YouTube under a different file

    Thanks!

    Would this work? Didn't play it though.
    Looks same except that reversed tag.Don't know whether it would make some difference.



    Paste the link of this video to online video converter and select mp3 as output.
