This is the best thing for youtube

Does anybody know, what format does Youtube save the audio as on their servers?

I'm curious because I'm picky with sound quality... I'd really like to save the audio as FLAC instead of MP3. Also, it's never recommended to re-encode an MP3 to another MP3... it's like making a photo-copy of a photo-copy. This is what worries me about the MP3 programs like the link above... unless it somehow downloads server-stored MP3 without re-encoding again?

I believe re~encoding definitely takes place. So not the best option for sound quality, but sometimes it can be passable provided the original video has excellent audio.
