Ripping audio from a YouTube video isn't a new trick, but Dirpy Studio is one of the most polished tools around. Don't just rip the audio as a generic MP3, rip the portion you want with the ID3 tags you assign.

We tested Dirpy Studio by ripping the audio from our how-to video demonstrating how to turn a DVD drive lens into a cameraphone macro lens. Dirpy Studio supports automatic formatting of files names, you can specify where the track begins recording and where it ends, and you can edit the ID3 tags before you download it. The plethora of options is a far cry from the simple one-size-fits-all MP3 downloads provided by most YouTube audio ripping sites.
Dirpy Studio is free and requires no registration. Check it out at the link below or sound off in the comments with your favourite tools for getting the most out of YouTube and other tube sites.
