There is youtube-dl that lets you download youtube videos from the cli. There is also a new(ish) tool called mps-youtube, that I haven't personally used, but looks like it does exactly what you want. https://github.com/mps-youtube/mps-youtube Give it a try and let us know if it works More on MPS - HERE.

VLC can do that. Use cvlc to turn off the GUI Reject the video to just play the audio using --vout none or --no-video Example: cvlc --vout none <URL> cvlc --no-video <URL>


You can do this with yturl, for example, using mpv or mplayer: mpv --no-video "$(yturl <url>)" mplayer -novideo "$(yturl <url>)" Disclaimer: I am the author of yturl.


Youtube-Viewer (more here) can be adjusted to play only sound. For *ubuntu: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nilarimogard/webupd8 sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install youtube-viewer In spite of what is said at the link above, it works fine with mplayer. Just like MPS from the other answer, it is meant to search, play and download youtube streams, only ...


abcde rips the tracks to wav first (nearly a 1-to-1 rip) then encodes them. You can set "KEEPWAVS=y" on any of those configs to keep these temporary files. To keep it from converting the wav files, remove the "encode" string from the "ACTIONS" option.

You do not have three devices named default. The three device names are default:CARD=ALSA, default:CARD=DAC, and default:CARD=LPD8. But if you don't want another resampling plugin, you probably should use one of the hw or dmix devices.


So apparently the settings and pipeline above are essentially good, and if you go to the ALSA forums they'll recommend something like the above, but a matching rate on your outputs is something that must be considered in addition. pcm.internal { type hw card 1 device 0 rate 48000 } pcm.hdmi_hw { type hw card 0 device 7 rate 48000 } My ...


Solved using the sudo /etc/init.d/alsa-utils reset 0 command.


Made an account just to post this, hope it helps someone in future. Thanks to Joseph for his answer. Perhaps it worked at the time of his posting but I had to add -o just after spectrogram for sox to accept the command. for file in *.flac;do outfile="${file%.*}.png" sox "$file" -n spectrogram -o "$outfile" done I'll be whacking them all in their ...


Assuming you're playing music in compressed format (MP3, OGG or similar), there's no way for it to be a disk problem. A typical OGG file has the bitrate of 128-196 kbps, i.e. 16-24 KB/s, which is less than 0.5% of a typical HDD bandwidth. Plus, many players cache about 1 MB of a file they're playing which means once music has started playing, it can only be ...


Considering Youtube videos, extracting audio from video may not be necessary, as the audio tracks can be downloaded separately as such by using Firefox with the latest Flashgot addon or by using mps-youtube (it is a tool meant to play and download audio tracks from youtube: more here).
