This will be the shortest article I’ve ever written because there’s really nothing to this process. If you want to convert a youtube video to an MP3 audio, all you need to do is:
- Copy the URL of the video
- Go to this site
- Paste that URL in the field provided
- Click Convert Video
That’s it! However, my virus scanner has picked up infected ads on this site before (it’s rare, but some infected ads can appear on occasion), so just keep your virus protection up to date and you’ll be fine.
The page creates a clickable link that lets you download an MP3 version of the video.
No questions asked.
I believe the maximum length of the file can be no longer than 20 minutes, so you won’t be able to download your favorite audio books. But at least you can finally download that royalty- and license-free music backtrack from your favorite FAIL or cat videos.
For us podcasters, this means pulling clips and segments from videos to add to our shows (Fair Use allows parody and commentary of licensed material, but be aware than any copyright holder can sue you anytime for any reason, regardless of what’s “fair use” or not).
