Is there a plugin for Seamonkey that works for downloading youtube videos ?

I actually only need the audio portion.

Thanks.

You could try this site rather than an extension/plugin -- https://ytmp3.cc/en13/

    Image This option, is NOT a plugin or extension, for SeaMonkey.

    But you can use youtube-dl to extract the audio from YouTube videos (in flac, mp3 ... etc)

    Example:
    Code: Select all
    youtube-dl -x --audio-format flac --audio-quality 0 [URL]

I don't get it.
You're download BOTH the audio & the video (& they do download separately, at that) & then only keeping the audio portion & then transcoding that into flac.

Why not simply download only the audio - in one of the native formats already available on the site?

m4a & webm (opus) audio are directly available.
Code: Select all
ytdl.exe  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=myifiXG1WUA  -f 251

Downloads webm (opus) audio only.
(I long ago shortened youtube-dl to ytdl.)

    ImageThe answer is quite simple.

    I am NOT interested, in any of these audio formats:

    Code: Select all
    format code      extension                           resolution note
    249                webm              audio only tiny   53k , opus @ 50k (48000Hz), 2.49MiB
    250                webm              audio only tiny   71k , opus @ 70k (48000Hz), 3.33MiB
    140                m4a               audio only tiny  130k , m4a_dash container, mp4a.40.2@128k (44100Hz), 6.90MiB
    251                webm              audio only tiny  137k , opus @160k (48000Hz), 6.84MiB


    In this particular case, I want a FLAC file Image

I hope you do realize FLAC is a file format created during post-processing conversion (in this case). YouTube doesn't offer FLAC format/quality to download. It means you can convert WEBM to FLAC after download. But in both ways it will not improve quality.

Correct.
No native flac on YT.

You are (in your case) downloading (both the) video (webm), (&) audio (webm), then immediately discarding the just downloaded video part, then converting the audio part to .flac - after the fact.
