    Hello

    I would like to download lectures from YouTube but some can be 2,3,4 hours long so the size is quite big. However there is an option where i can download a Webm audio files which is just the audio and are much smaller. Having tried using Firefox add-ons, it take's forever to download a small % of a Webm audio file and it always fail's everytime. Is there a software, and a way to download a Webm file faster?

    Thanks

    Not sure I understand. If you can do that already, what exactly is your question?
