thanks for the step by step tutorial.
Have another easy way to get mp3 from youtube videos.
In my browser, I pick up the youtube url, then paste it in, check mp3 download url, then download it to may disk. No need to convert to another format.
But there are other more automatic method, if you can use a Linux-based device.

To get music from YouTube, you can try the following way:
Use Streaming Audio Recorder to record the songs you'd like to save from YouTube. And then you can convert the recordings to MP3 or any format you like.

Besides, you are able to get music from Spotify and Zune without DRM protection with this tool.
