    Can anybody help me with this? I want to convert some music videos from YouTube to mp3 songs. I am able to download them using youtubehack but it will just convert it to mp4 and some other formats. Part of the convert option is mp3(audio only) but you can just play it from the server but not downloadable.

    Both ffmpegX and VisualHub can extract the audio of MP4 movies and turn them into MP3. TubeSock also allows you to capture the audio portion of YouTube videos direct to MP3.

    you should try quicktime pro, just extract the sound, then save it.
