comment 12.04 BCM4312 and aireplay-ng/airodump-ng
I have a 4312(LP-PHY) and I've not been able to use any of those tools either. It's a limitation in the driver, both STA proprietary and the opensource b43. Some cards work, some don't I'm afraid.

comment How can I download music from youtube and not the video film?
I doubt youtube stores the audio tracks of video seperately, unless someone knows something different then I'm all ears. This is the best/easiest way I know, it does the job and leaves you with 1 audio file. Let the user decide

I guess it could be down to your video driver as well. What chipset are you using?
