I have seen people use a cable from the headphone jack to the mic jack using audacity.

Just to make things clear recording things off of YouTube that you have not own and/or have explicit permission from the copyright holder for anything other than temporary personal use in most countries is illegal.

To record sound off of YouTube Videos you must either have a 3.5mm jack male to 3.5mm jack male connector plugged into your microphone/line in port and speaker/headphone port for it to receive the Audio signal from your PC as an audio input which you can then record using an audio program of your choosing or a much more straight forward way is to use YouTube to MP3 Converter - Video2mp3 .

No problem, and were you really supposed to be recording in the Royal Albert Hall?

Media Center HD recording issue
Media center records fine except on HD channels where I think the data rate overwhelms the system. Unfortunately media center defaults to recording HD if it can. Is there anywhere to globally change all recordings to to SD rather than HD ?
