But it'll matter a whole lot to those who decide to check out your videos. You'll want your videos to appeal to your target audience both visually and auditory. They'll think "Hey let's take a look at this guy's videos." When they are impressed with both sound and visuals, they're bound to come back for more. A vid with few to no sound effects will not attract as much so it'll be good to work on your sound mixing.

If you're using a windows CPU, you can download YouTube MP3 converter from VideoSoft and it'll be able to rip audio from a YouTube video.
Lots of practice helps.
