Download And Extract Audio From YouTube Videos

There have been more than enough times that I’ve caught a song in the background of a YouTube video and wondered, “Now, why isn’t that on my iPod, yet? Oh, right, because Best Buy doesn’t carry the album because it’s not in the Top 40. Foolish me.” There’s always a way of downloading from torrents, but for those of us a little leery of deciding for ourselves whether torrents are trustworthy or not, here are two interesting programs. Even youtube vanced apk are getting popular these days.

MP3 Converter, VidtoMP3 or ListenToYouTube will download the audio from YouTube video (in either standard or high quality) and convert it to MP3 file. A few clicks of the mouse later, you can save the file and drag it to your iTunes or MP3 device. (For those of us who get a little squeamish around legalities, yes, the process is considered absolutely legal if a video is not pirated.)

If you want a recorder software check out NotMP3.

Free YouTube to MP3 Converter is the most powerful tool.

You can convert entire YouTube playlists and channels.

First of all, you need to download Free YouTube to MP3 Converter app.

Then use your common sense (it’s intuitive and very simple) and get all the videos you need or check an official how to guide on playlist download.

For VidtoMP3 or ListenToYouTube use this steps


  1. Choose one of the programs (I’ve found that ListenToYouTube often works a little faster) and click on its link below.
  2. Go to You can also try VidToMP3.
  3. Find a video on YouTube you’d like in audio form on your computer, MP3 device, iPod, whatever.
  4. Copy and paste it into the URL box in the middle of each screen. Proceed.
  5. It may take a moment or two, but the program will retrieve the file and provide you with a link that shows “Download MP3.” Click on it—you’ll have to do it again when it goes to the next page, but the second time, a screen will pop up to give you the option of the destination of your file and what program with which to open it. You can find several other tools to get audio from YouTube videos, you can download here.
  6. Go to the file destination, click, and enjoy.
