Downloads from Youtube are either FLV(shit), MP4 or WEBM files.

Pick the MP4, go to the blue link below.

Use MPEG Streamclip(blue link has info and links) to extract the audio from the video, because rendering the audio of a video item is unreliable and not in total sync.

In MPEG Streamclip, load the MP4(requires Quicktime be installed btw), pick File/Extract Audio, and extract to an AIFF files, which is the only uncompressed export option. Reaper can read that just fine.

Install VLC or one of the FFMPEG libraries(see blue link for info and links).

Put the MP4 file on one track, pull its fader down to -inf. Put the extracted audio on the second track.

Instant fun.
