I was wondering: if I ever wanted to record a song off youtube using audacity, what would be the best/easiest way to accomplish this?

Def Leppard
Journey
Tool
Testament
Megadeth
Slayer
Mastodon
Deftones
Alice in Chains
Foo Fighters
Rodrigo y Gabriela

set the computer's soundcard as the input source.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

If he does this he would no longer be using audacity, which is what he wants to do. 2nd poster has the correct answer.

what i do is get an auxiallary cable, connect the headphone jack to the mic jack and the computer essentially records itself

This, kind of. It's usually called stereo mix. If you can't find it you might have to download some custom drivers, this was the case for me with Windows 7. If you have a Mac I think this is impossible, but I'm not sure.

Well I'm sorry... I just thought it'd be simpler to do it that way..

This, using audacity just seems like over complicating it.
