The main feature of much of the video content on YouTube, and other familiar video posting sites, is not necessarily the image viewing aspect; sometimes audio is the key component. For example, TED Talks, Music Playlists and such, are often just as enjoyable and informative through listening alone. MediaHuman's YouTube to MP3 program strips out the audio section from videos, and stores the files in much smaller MP3 or M4A formats - which are then transferable to most portable audio players, to iTunes, and to phones. (Get content from YouTube, Vimeo, SoundCloud, Dailymotion, VEVO and other sites.)
Moving up to the more featured YouTube Downloader program ($ 25 CDN) will retain both the audio and the video portions. MediaHuman also makes a Lyrics Finder, a photo collage creator, and a fews other useful apps - some for Mac only.
[Be aware, the domain name's owner is protected by a registration service in Panama; the nationality of the developers remains a mystery.]
Using the program: Drag and Drop links into the "Drop Area" (a smallish widown) - several items at a time, if you wish - to create a list of automatically downloading audio files. I did not try the Turbo mode.
Finding the Files: A Music folder for MediaHuman is created during installation, and that's where the downloads can be found. In my case: C:\Users\Dan\Downloads\MediaHuman\Music
