With immense pleasure, let me announce about the merger of this blog with ഞാന്||njaan*. ഞാന്||njaan* was started as a Malayalam blog, by ഞാന് – a Malayalam blogger. After the merger (which happened already), ഞാന്||njaan* will speak both English and Malayalam. Myself (pR@tz) and ഞാന് will be co-authoring most of the posts at ഞാന്||njaan* (both under the same njaan ഞാന്||njaan ). We also have two guest authors – amooma and Hari Shanker.
I request all my readers to update the feed subscriptions in their feed readers to the following:-
http://njaan.in/feed – to get all posts irrespective of the language.
http://njaan.in/category/english/feed/ – to subscribe to all English posts.
http://njaan.in/category/Malayalam/feed/ – to subscribe to all Malayalam posts.
*We are yet to decide on the name of the blog, until then the name will be ഞാന്||njaan.

I am not explaining the way to download youtube videos.
- Install ffmpeg package if not installed yet. Fire up a terminal and issue this command to install ffmpeg
sudo apt-get install ffmpeg
- Steer to the folder where you have downloaded the youtube video (the .flv file) and issue the following command (match the command parameter colors with output chara)
ffmpeg -title Some_Title -i Input_video_file_name.flv -acodec vorbis -ac 2 -ab 512000 -vn -y output_audio.ogg
==> This will give a 2-channel ogg-vorbis file with 512 kBps bitrate (most recommended)
ffmpeg -title Some_Title -i Input_video_file_name.flv -acodec libmp3lame -ac 2 -ab 512000 -vn -y output_audio.mp3
==> This will give a 2-channel MP3 file with 512 kBps bitrate (least recommended)
I personally prefer OGG over MP3. Quality-to-size ratio is pretty high for OGG-VORBIS as compared to MP3. Try it out yourself.

You do evil and Google will point it out in public. (like diluting philosophies, betraying people, compromising ideologies…. cough! cough!)
