Extract / Rip audio from youtube videos (.flv)

Three step process.

1. Download the youtube video from either
http://www.youtubex.com/ or

2. In ffmpegx, change your target format into quick preset of Movie Audio to MP2, and change the bit rate to 384 and Sample rate to 48000. (The reason why I choose to convert to MP2 first is because I want to get high quality AAC at the end of the day.)

3. In iTunes, convert the MP2 file into AAC 192 VBR Mono since youtube videos are already in mono audio.
