Best way to get audio from youtube videos into a Sony Walkman?

I just received a Sony Walkman NWZ-W262 for my birthday. I am psyched about filling it up with music and using it at the gym. I'd love to transfer some music from my own CD's, but most of them are in storage. I don't have money to pay for new music. What I do have is a bunch of youtube videos saved whose audio I'd love to use for workouts. [more inside]

Did you keep the 'Windows Media Player 9 For Mac' installer? I need it.

Does anyone still have an installer for Windows Media Player 9 for mac? Yes I know it's discontinued, and I do have Flip4Mac, but I'd also like to have WMP. I have a slow computer, and I remember in the past that the official programme, whilst it was crappy overall and showed videos a bit pixellated, highish res ones played more smoothly than in QT+Flip4Mac...or VLC, or whatever. I'm hoping someone has kept the .sitx file. Anyone? It will run on a PPC Leopard system won't it?

Visualizations from older MS media player loaded into version 11?

Windows Media Player 11 -- I (foolishly, it seems) allowed MS to update to the newer media player. I hardly ever use these bloated monsters, but sometimes, at night, I enjoyed one of the visualizations, and I've used it for years. In the latest and greatest media player from MS, it is not available. Where can I get the 'old' visualizations, and how/where to I install said visualizations so I can once again use the only thing I care about their media player? Alternately, can I install an older MS media player on this machine once this new one has its hooks into my puter, and how do I install an older media player, and where do I get it? I'd rather use the latest, as I'm sure it's more up to date against whatever hacks someone may come up with; that said, I want my dang visualization back.

Getting WMP11 to play mp3 links immediately

Can I make iTunes recognize an RCA device?

I'd like to change the way Windows XP handles an external device (mp3 player). My RCA Lyra is dealt with as an external hard drive, so that I can only add files to it by copy-pasting (or drag and dropping) but not through the iTunes "export" feature. How do I change how Windows treats this device? [more inside]

Windows Media Player

For some reason, as of late, .avi files have been playing weird in Windows Media Player (which i'm getting a little sick of). The sound plays fine but the video starts dragging and keeps getting farther and farther behind. This does not happen with .mpg or .asf files. Is this a simple RAM problem or is something up with windows media?

Inverted Media Files

Okay, for some reason, all of my .mpeg and .avi files when opened in Windows Media or Global DIVX play upside down and inside out. The audio is fine, but the image is totally inverted.
