download the video with youtube-dl and extract the audio track with ffmpeg. The result is probably a M4A file which is in good quality (not high because youtube does not support that), you can convert that to MP3 if you want to with ffmpeg, but you can also keep it as M4A if you can play that directly, most players can

You can't: they have been compressed to 192 kbps, which is inherently low quality. The information that was lost is something that cannot be recovered. If you just want to rip an mp3 from YouTube, google YouTube MP3 converter, click on a link, and follow their instructions.

Well, taking into account the fact that there are plenty of such apps, it can be rather challenging to answer. Still, you can start with this youtube mp3 converter I used to test. Simply give it a try

That's cool! I like to look at YouTube music videos. But I didn't know it was downloadable.

This makes it easy to save YouTube videos on my computer. It saves me time to search. I download those videos that I liked or needed for further use
