How to Convert YouTube to MP3?


Love a funny video you saw on YouTube, but just want to take the audio with you? Freemore YouTube Downloader has the ability to take audio off of a video and easily convert it to MP3 or other audio format that works on the media player of your choice.

Step 1. Choose Download Wizard Mode

Launch Freemore YouTube Downloader. Choose "Download video from YouTube" (1) mode (If you want to convert local video files, choose "Convert audio/video (previously downloaded) from file").

Choose Download Wizard Mode

Step 2. Paste YouTube Video URLs & Choose Download Settings

Copy the URLs of available YouTube videos and click "Paste" (1) to paste them to the "Input URLs" section. You can click "Remove" button to delete the selected URL or click "Empty" button to clear all added URLs. The program will auto-check if the URLs are correct and pop up a window if wrong URLs are pasted. You may check the "Prefer YouTube high quality" (2) and the downloader will download the video in default queue. There's a "Config..." (3) button to activate the window in which you can queue the preferred quality. Click "Select..." (4) to choose download folder. Then, click "Download" (5) to start download.

(The download priority settings here do not guarantee that you get whatever format and quality you want - 2 conditions to make it work: 1. the format/quality you want must be listed in the "Prefer YouTube high quality" window activated by "Config..." button; 2. the format/quality you want must be available on the YouTube video page. If you don't need this function, just uncheck "Prefer YouTube high quality" and the default quality would be HQ5.)

Step 3. Start Download

After you hit "Download" and the program will detect the URLs you paste to find the real download link. Within few seconds, the name of the video will be displayed and the download is started. You can view the file info, downloading speed, time estimation and a progress bar.

Step 4. Input Video Files

When the download is finished, you can see a brief task report and an "Open folder" button to directly open the download folder. Click the "Convert the downloaded file(s) now!" (1) for continuing conversion and the downloaded YouTube videos will be added to the conversion list.

(The filename of the downloaded video will be the same with the title text of the YouTube page the URL links to. If needed, after the downloading, you can click "Open folder" to get the downloaded file and manually rename it.)

Input the Download YouTube Videos

You are allowed to add more videos to the list by "Add Video..." (2) button. You can remove any or all of the imported videos with the "Delete" & "Clear" button and arrange the order of files by "Move Up" or "Move Down" button or by dragging the listed videos.

Moreover, you can specify output quality with many quality presets for every format in the "Presets" (3) dropdown list. Click "Convert" (4) to start conversion.
