Convert Video Sancto to mp3: ListenToYouTube.com
« on: December 26, 2014, 04:59:30 PM »
I use this to convert Video Sancto videos to mp3. I now have something on the order of around 30 separate Fr. Isaac Mary Relyea sermons/talks. The benefit of this particular site is it allows videos over 20 minutes. Many "Youtube to mp3" sites have a length cap. I've used this site to convert videos up to almost 2 hours long.

Here's a tutorial on use:

Thank you!
In conclusion, I can leave you with no better advice than that given after every sermon by Msgr Vincent Giammarino, who was pastor of St Michael’s Church in Atlantic City in the 1950s:

    “My dear good people: Do what you have to do, When you’re supposed to do it, The best way you can do it,   For the Love of God. Amen.”

This would be great to plug into then the car. For trips to Denver and such. And vice versa.

Or you could just go to AudioSancto, which is where most, if not all, of the sermons are from  ;)

I use a Youtube downloader program to get all my music :)

Audio Sancto is not as dynamic in its searching ability and there are differences in the two. For example, search "relyea" on both. On AS you get a single result for a lenten mission. On VS, you get over 28 or 29 results of separate talks.

I find the anonymity on both sites problematic for searching. I wish I could find all of Fr. Wolfe's stuff without having to listen to each thing.

Yeah, it's supposed to be anonymous.  But maybe they could assign each priest with a pseudonym or identification number or something so that you'd know who's who.

That's a search problem, but theoretically (if there was no problem with the search feature) you should be using Audio Sancto.  If the search features worked the same then there's no reason to go through the trouble of using third-party software to rip and download the audio from a YouTube video when the video's audio is already available as a download elsewhere.  And besides going through extra trouble, you're getting lower quality audio.  mp3 is lossy compression, and so taking mp3 and re-saving it in the video file will cause a reduction in the audio's quality, and then taking the audio out of the video and re-saving it a second time back into mp3 format will reduce it even more.

Anonymity is pointless. The excuses AS and VS use are puerile in practice given that Fr. Wolfe is a known priest within Traditional circles and has a very, very distinct voice; Fr. Shannon Collins, same; others, same. Fr. Relyea is the only one who puts his name to his words.

Further, anonymity problematically allows errors to be unchallenged and in the case of any accusations contained within a sermon, unanswered to the accuser. **ETA: example: back a few months ago an "anonymous" priest lambasted Tolkien and his LOTR series. The sermon series was RIFE with errors of philosophy, theology, and basic facts. Because of the anonymous nature, and the outcry it produced in the parish (indeed, many parishes), my pastor had to take the time to listen to the whole damnable rotten mess of it, write a rebuttal, etc. Anonymity therefore produced tons of work for him and the other priests when it SHOULD have been that Fr. Fell Asleep In Logic 101 answered, and consequently retracted his STUPID, STUPID sermon series. **


My pastor is utterly against anonymous preaching and I wholly concur, as the reasons behind it do not stand to basic logic and in practice results in nothing but "oh, this is a Fr. Wolfe sermon!" Fr. Paul Nicholson, the SSPX hater, is also distinct in his nasally Canadian accent, so I just skip his. Anonymous? Hardly. None of them are anonymous anymore than any of us on here are anonymous -- they, far less. At least that's the opinion of Jon "Gardener" Horton... 

And yes, the search problem IS a problem. It utilizes tagging which is insufficient, contra Video Sancto/YouTube's superior search engine and better tagging. This is like saying, "well, the unorganized library is just as good, and has many of the same books" Yeah... so what, you can't find them!

If a frog had wings.... but some people have a slew of Video Sancto "favorites" and might like to convert those to mp3 rather than chasing them down on Audio Sancto -- if they even exist on AS. It's not like mp3 renders an unintelligible mess of scratchy audio which cannot be listened to. What next, "Vinyl Sancto: for the discerning Catholic audiophile"? LOL

I understand their initial reticence to be public and to be anonymous.  I think nowadays, though...  it's a different story, and is more cumbersome.  It does, probably, give them at least some cover, and permits them to be less bothered and hassled by people kvetching over something they say in a sermon.

That said, I had no idea Nicholson is on AudioSancto.  I cannot stand that man and am now super wary of that site.  :/  They should tag his.  :lol:

What? Is this a recent development?

He might not be on AS or VS. I somehow have an mp3 of a talk he gave, but it might have been from a CMTV source video from YouTube and I didn't realize it when I downloaded.

I would not purposely download Nicholson's work, so it might have just been a mix up on my part from another source that ended up in my files. Nonetheless, while I've never heard a bad sermon or preacher on VS (save that stupid and ignorant LOTR series), it would be nice to be able to look for known quality/type of sermon.

Anyway, Fr. Isaac's non-anon mode of operation allows me to know I'm downloading quality work. I swear, I often times feel as if I didn't even know the most basic things of the faith when I hear his sermons, and he is starting me fresh. That's a good sign imo.

I know, with an ice pick or a Bic pen, even? ;D  Wow, I had no idea he was featured in Audio Sancto...wonder which one he is?!
