I'm working on a web based Youtube -> MP3 Converter. Would anyone use it? I know that such services already exist, but a lot of them have many-a-popup, can be slow, and sometimes dont even work!

If anyone's interested, i'd be using PHP & FFMPEG along with a script similar to http://joesstuff.co.uk/youtube/. I'd find the link to the MP4 File, WGET it (or use curl, either way), then convert it with ffmpeg.

How easy is it to use a multimeter to test a PSU? I'm assuming I'd have to jury rig it to turn it on using the paper clip technique....

I'm wondering if I should just spend 20 bucks and buy a tester...I do run a computer business, so I'd be nice to have, but if I can do the job with a multimeter, that'd be okay too....

Advice?

Multimeter is better. It can read the proper voltage. (if it's too low, if it's too high) Just put the red contact on the 12v+ for any molex connector and the black contact in the ground. Switch the multimeter on to DC volts and read it.

(ATX pin-out)

Thanks Grant!

Which pins do you use to "jump"-start the PSU?

4 and 6. PSUON and GND. Or as it's more commonly known, the Green and any black.

Thanks again. You saved me like $25. And gave me a reason to feel cool and use a multimeter
