The more or less simple answer.
First, let me say that I am not sure of what type of audio file compression is
used by YouTube. Regardless, whether it is MP3 or something else, there are no
files to be downloaded: it is a streaming service.
There are several websites that
generally in exchange for installing some type of adware or variant browser

helpful. This list certainly does not need people bashing others for giving
ideas and suggestions.
