If it's not ZDoom, it goes here.

Reading this quite nearly knocked off half my IQ.

First, there's the copyright infringement of uploading to youtube in the first place. Making it available there is making it available for distribution, which is quite bad.

Then there's saving a copy to your drive, thus illegally obtaining content without a valid license. What country are you in? I'll google the applicable law for you.

Of course I do. It's right there in the name. It's basically uncompressed forms of audio in which nothing is lost and it's in a raw format like WAV or something. Lossy means that it is compressed in some way and certain frequencies may be cut out to save space, like MP3. I know OP said he wanted lossless, and in my post I said I can't tell any difference between lossy and lossless so I just go with 128kb/s MP3 exported from recoding high(-ish) quality YouTube videos.

so? that's not what the OP was asking for in the thread. he wanted suggestions for lossless, you suggested lossy because you can't tell the difference of lossy and lossless (which i doubt most people really can tell, but that's besides the point.) that's fine and all, but the OP wasn't asking for lossy files, so why you were suggesting it (and downloading from Youtube of all places...) in the first place i don't understand.

Spoiler'd off for reasons.
Spoiler:

I should also probably stop posting about this or I'm gonna end up banned. :cry:
Well maybe only if I actually posted anything pirated. I know that is against the rules.

"Can" and "Legally authorized to" are two very different things, I hope you know. I "do" things I may not be "legally authorized to" when I rip music from flash games to listen to in my car. That's not defendable in court. Whether or not you agree with that law, that's how things stand right now. Just be aware of it. In my case, the only people who are going to hear that music are myself and whoever travel with me in my car. And a lot of companies aren't going to have an issue with my listening to some music. But it's not always the game developer's call- take for example the music used in Blind Swordsman. Robdog will not make it available to the public due to the license he agreed to when purchasing it for use in his game.

"Fair use" as handled in US law consists of using snippets of copyright work for criticism, parody, news reporting, teaching... Basically anything that doesn't involve taking a complete copy of a copyrighted work for "personal use".

Keep arguing with your rationalisations as much as you want, the law will tell you you're wrong every time.

Let me change my pace and give a real answer. Tried checking out the FiXT Store? Not sure if they'd have what you're looking for.

My apologies. My intentions were good to help the OP but weren't in the best interest of the thread.
