The sharing sites to watch video directly on Internet video clips are very popular. Most often if we need just a MP3 audio of a Youtube video, we use to download the video and than we extract the MP3 with some softwares. If only the audio portion of a video you want, such as an excerpt from a concert or music clip of your favorite band, you can easily retrieve it. 
The free and VDownloader will allow you to automatically download music from a YouTube video and convert to MP3 format. You can then listen as you like on your computer, copy it to your portable media player, burn to CD Audio, etc..

Configuring VDownloader:
VDownloader is in the form of a ZIP archive that you can download for free . After downloading, you must unzip the archive and then run the Easy set.
First download VDownloader and save it on your computer.
Click Extract all files.
In the wizard that appears, click Next.
Once extraction is complete, click Finish.
The folder containing the installation program VDownloader is open. Double click the file vdownloader_setup.exe.
Click the Run button.
Select your preferred language and click OK.
Click the Next button.
Select the I understand and accept the terms of the license agreement and click Next twice.
Uncheck CreateAuctions Channel Desktop Icon and click Next.
Check the option Do not install TuneUp Utilities is selected then click Next.
Click the Install button.
When copying files over, finally click the Finish button.

Teach me how to download

Hi Leon.Welcome to the world of 'Help! What's happening now?"
The problem with downloading is that it means different things to different people. To some it is the act of pulling something off the internet to use on your computer, like a program or a photo or brochure, to some it's getting photographs off a camera and into the computer. to some it's buying music, apps, books, & videos from the itunes store or Amazon to use on your computer and to others it can be dowloading whole films from a torrent site.
In general terms it's the act of getting someing off a website and it's done in a number of ways. But it always starts (with a few exceptions) with you clicking a button on a website that says "download".If your mac is still set up as it came out of the box, then all downloads are automatically placed in a folder called "Downloads" which is located in your Home folder (the house folder with your name underneath) in the USERS folder. It should also be in your dock adjacent to the trash and also in the side-bar when you open a folder.
What you do with the download after you have received it depends on what it is.
If you buy something off the iTunes store or App store, then the computer will do everything for you after you commit to buying it and will sort everything out and put the file whereever it is meant to go.
I think it would be best if you can find someone to talk to so that you can see what to do - it's a lot easier than trying to follow my rambling!

Sandisk 16GB Cruzer with U3 download to iMac ???

If the file is an .exe, then I recommend getting a wine based launcher such as Darwine. Try running it in Darwine, Wine or a similar program, if that doesn't work, then try formatting it to FAT32 (usable by both Windows and Mac [But you can't transfer files over 4 Gigabytes in size if you need that] ) or NTFS (and downloading MacFuse and the NTFS / 3G plug-in to be able to read and write NTFs on Mac) and not using the programs that came with the Flash Drive.

Downloaded a film plays ok through vlc but when i convert it there is no sound. it says i need an ac3 audio code 8192 . im on a imac os.

The Apple-supplied version of Quicktime lacks certain proprietary codecs that belong to other companies. VLC contains these via some licensing arrangement that is not clear to me. You can augment the installed codecs by installing a free package called Perian. Once you have done so, the audio to the files you have already downloaded will probably begin playing just fine.

Not running programs downloaded

please check the file extension,

if it's .exe(if no icons show up for the game ), mac may not support it directly, you will have to download cross over chromium from here

it doesn't guarantee that the exe will work, since mac uses .app instead of .exe
