When a YouTube video is being played and the music which goes along with it suddenly hits your taste, the first thing which would come to your mind is wanting to save that music into the storage of your devices, hence, you can listen to it either without the need to connect to the internet again or when you are in a place where internet connection is completely inaccessible. But the main problem is, YouTube doesn’t have a built-in feature yet in which you are allowed to download the videos in mp3 format and then save them to your own devices. There are editing software like iMovie, Final Cut Pro, and Adobe Premiere Pro where you can extract the audio from your downloaded YouTube videos but some of them have a very complicated conversion process or an installation that would take ages. This is the time in which a YouTube downloader comes in handy.
A youtube converter or Youtube downloader is a website that can extract audio from YouTube videos, thus, what will be left is an mp3 file which is a format that can be played in media players, or in any other applications or devices that supports the said file type. Their service does not require any third party software installation or web browser extension which means that it’s completely safe to use and your security won’t be at risk. You will be able to convert a YouTube video anonymously without your personal data being collected. The step-by-step process in using a YouTube MP3 converter isn’t that complex at all. The first thing that you need to do is to ‘copy’ the URL link of the YouTube video that you want to download and then ‘paste’ it in the text box at the home page of the mp3 converter. The next thing that needs to be done is to hit enter on the keyboard or click the search button on the right side of the text box where you have pasted the link. The website will then move to another page displaying the thumbnail of the YouTube video that you have chosen and below that is a button that says ‘Download the MP3 file’. The conversion process will then start and the audio, in mp3 file format, will start downloading automatically in a few seconds. Finally, you can listen to and enjoy the music without the need to access it on YouTube. But keep in mind that you should only download videos from YouTube when you have permission from the creator/copyright owner of the video. It is indicated in YouTube’s term of service that downloading content without permission is strictly prohibited.
Youtube to MP3 converters can solely be used on YouTube and does not support links from any other media streaming sites. There are other websites that now offer video conversions also for Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc. And on some of them, the bit rate and frequency of the audio can be freely manipulated to either enhance the sound quality or reduce the file size. But since YouTube converters were designed for converting YouTube videos only, they do their job very well in terms of conversion speed and ease.
