I use Easy-HiQ to record a variety of computer streams and use it on occasion to record YouTube audio.

Cheers mate but it looks like you have to pay for that after the trial?

I was looking for something that's free if possible.

There is an online "youtube to mp3" converter called dirpy. Very good.
Make sure to only download material that is not copyrighted

+1 on this. It works great, it's free and it has a built in tag editor.

the best thing i find is to download the youtube video here: keepvid.com and then use a wave editor like audacity here: audacity.sourceforge.net and then record the music and save as mp3.

put pwn in front of youtube.com and it will bring you to a website that will allow you to turn the video into an mp3.

for example:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rOiLVo8yIJE
