    You can use Flash Downloader if you have Firefox, or (wish I could spoil it) www.vid2mp3.com. A LOT of other "youtube-to-w/e.com" sites were taken down super quick and some like to try Java exploits, but vid2mp3 is 100% safe and damn reliable, and been around for almost a year (it's a record for those kind of sites).

    Don't go blabbing to everyone else about it tho, too much traffic there might alert Youtube/Google and, well,...you know ;)...

    You can also set audacity to record whatever sound is going through your computer's soundcard.

    This is what i do, best way as it's much easier to grab the exact part of the video you want

    I use offliberty.com, it also lets you get the video if you like.

    If the speeches are well-known, they might also be on archive.org (and license free). Maybe my version of Audacity is too old, but I am unable to "listen" to my sound card and have to use virtual sound cards (pita!).

    if you're on windows 7

    go to control panel > sound > manage audio devices > recording tab > right click on "stereo mix" and enable it.

    you should then be able to select "stereo mix" as a recording device in audacity.

    I use soundflower. Youtubemp3 converters usually are low quality.

    Is the file not already compressed into a low quality format when it's uploaded to youtube?

    www.clipconverter.cc is my choice. It gives you full control of which quality of the video clip you want to rip (up to 1080p) and a plethora of file formats to download the video in.
