I am not explaining the way to download youtube videos.

  1. Install ffmpeg package if not installed yet. Fire up a terminal and issue this command to install ffmpeg
  2. sudo apt-get install ffmpeg

  3. 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)
  4. 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.
