I read somewhere that it is possible to rip youtube videos (music only) without the need for converting it into an mp3 as such.

The online conversion process (naturally) results in loss of quality, and (apparently) it is possible to preserve the original video’s audio quality via a direct rip. If so, how would it be done and what format would it be in anyway?

thanks

    I think the YouTube Downloader is paid and they might be getting it confused.

      Oh I’m four days late but yes. The YouTube downloader also downloads audio, I didn’t realize they had a separate program that only downloads audio. Weird.
