Want to convert YouTube videos to MP3 files? I know this topic has been extensively covered but there is still some confusion regarding exactly what tool to use and how to get optimal performance out of your MP3 audio files.

Have you bought yourself any of Apple’s products like Ipod, Iphone or ipad and want to be able to convert YouTube music videos into mp3 files so you can listen whiles on the go? Worry no more, you can actually convert your favorite YouTube videos into mp3 and later play it on your iPod or other mp3 enabled device. How is it done? Here are some few steps you can take to convert YouTube Videos in to mp3 files

Step 1

There are many approved plug-ins available whether you’re using Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome that help you download YouTube videos either as complete videos (as AVI, MPEG, FLV, etc.) or as MP3 or WMF files. For Google Chrome so far the best YouTube downloading add-on is Easy YouTube Video Downloader; once you have installed the add-on an extra link appears beneath the YouTube video that lets you choose what format (including MP3) you would like to download the file in.

For Mozilla Firefox there is no particular favourite, but the good thing is there are multiple options available that you can immediately install.

Of course the best choice would be to simply go to an online tool such as Video2MP3.net– it is one of the best online tools to convert YouTube videos to MP3 files. Initially when it was launched it was quite clean, but now since it gets lots of traffic, as a natural consequence, it has lots of ads.

Step 2

Go to www.youtube.com and search for the video clip you would like to convert. Copy the URL of the video from the address bar of the browser you are using.

Step 3

After this, open up the YouTube to MP3 conversion program you have installed.

Step 4

A closer look at the program would reveal an “Input URL box”. Right-click inside the “Input URL” box and click on ‘paste.’

Step 5

The next step is to select the folder you want the converted video to be in. Set your output folder. If you are confused on how this is done, click on the ‘Browse’ button, scroll to the top on the right side, and click on Desktop. This will cause whatever you convert to be saved onto your desktop.

Step 6

Finally, Click on download button. Your conversion will now begin immediately. Once this is done, a message will appear informing you of the completed conversion. Check your desktop – you will now have your converted MP3 files waiting for you.

Remember to convert your video to the standard accepted quality, if you are not really sure what the other options do. Congratulation. You can now convert all your favorite music videos on YouTube into an mp3 file.
