downloading youtube audio
Greetings - I want to download some youtube audio as MP3 - and see there are various software options, some free and some for $$$. I would not mind paying some $$$ for a good software - any advice or suggestions?
Im always leery about downloading free stuff bc Im never quite sure what else might be in it, all that spyware and creepy crawly stuff. Is this a legitimate fear? Im a newbie - this is the first home computer Ive had since 2002 and Im finding it's a whole new world!
I see mention of Audacity here but I have Windows 7 so it wouldnt work for me (dont want to mess with the test version).
(BTW Im talking about mostly highly obscure non copyrighted 50s r&b and 60s psychedelia that is unobtainable from anywhere else, for my own personal use. )
