YouTube to MP3

Can anyone recommend a website/programme which converts songs on You Tube to MP3? I've been using Media Human but it's becoming more and more unreliable and difficult to use.

Re: YouTube to MP3

I use VLC media player (it's free ) and I've used it for many years.
You can load your MP4 video and `rip' the audio from it quite easily.

A bit of a tutorial how to do it here:

Re: YouTube to MP3

This is something different. But it's an absolutely perfect and trouble free method of getting perfect MP3 or WAV recordings off your computer without any kind of software. I use a ZOOM H4N recorder. YOu see reporters using them all the time. They are very reliable and heavy duty. They record digital stereo, 4 channel and multitrack. THey have stereo line in and studio/ broadcast quality twin microphones built in for live recording. I am a musician so I use all it's functions. But the line in can just be plugged into your line out to your computer speakers or from the headphone out. The down side is that your record in real time but I enjoy that anyway. It has a USB out so you can transfer the MP3 file direct to you computer and put it on a stick or a disc. The Zoom is Japanese and all made in Japan. It was expensive when I bought it but you can probably get a cheaper Chinese knock off now. IT will do the job for a while but won't last as long. Plus is you have a high quality (IF you buy Japanese) tool that will last you for life. Just a suggestion. If you are at all interested I will send you more details. This one is advertised here for $AD 409. That is about 230 pound sterling.

Re: YouTube to MP3

Thank you both for your replies. Keezoy - your gadget looks great but it's probably outside my technilogical abilities and certainly outside my pocket and I'll be taking Judd's recommendation. Thanks again.

I use the same website as Caricature and it's simple to use and free as well. Two thumbs up from me.

Yes you do. I use Firefox and it has a YouTube Video Downloader add-on. It puts a download button under the video and you just click on it to download it. It offers different resolutions from 480pixels to HD quality but some aren't available. Once downloaded, you can extract the audio from it.

Re: YouTube to MP3

https://mp3-youtube.download/en/best-youtube-converter is easier by far. Paste the web page address of the video you want converting to MP3 into the box and click one button. Job done in under a minute and saved to where you want it.
