Can the audio of a YouTube video be transferred to an MP3 player?

I have an old video that is a (.flv) file.

Any good converters to change it to MP3?

Thanks.

(Free) programs like Audacity and Wavepad can record played audio on a computer and then you can save the output into MP3 format afterward.

Can Audacity record RealAudio or other streaming audio?

Windows and Linux
With most Windows and Linux audio devices, it is possible to record whatever sound the computer is currently playing, including internet radio streams.

In the drop-down menu on Audacity's mixer toolbar, choose “Wave Out” or “Stereo Mix” as the input source. (The exact name may be different, depending on your computer's sound drivers.) When you press the Record button, Audacity will capture whatever sound is playing on your computer's speakers. Note: on Windows Vista or 7, you must choose the required input source in the "Recording Device" dropdown in the "Audio I/O" tab of Preferences ("Devices" tab in Audacity Beta). On Windows, if you don't have a “Wave Out” or “Stereo Mix” option, or if it won't record, go to the system Control Panel and try to enable this option there. For instructions see: Using the Control Panel on the Wiki.

If this doesn't work on your computer, you can instead use a cable to connect your computer's “Line Out” (speaker) port to its “Line In” port, and use Audacity to record from Line In.

Note: Do not enable "software playthrough" when recording computer playback, because this creates a series of echoes.
