Download Song from YouTube Video

Love that song you just heard on YouTube? With sites like ListenToYouTube and VidToMp3, you can download the audio off a YouTube video with minimal effort.

The two mentioned sites are using the same script, so they work identically. All you have to do is to enter the YouTube video URL. The video will then be converted to an mp3 file playable on all mp3 capable music player.

Before downloading the file, you can first preview it to make sure you are downloading what you are expecting.

If none of these work for you, you can try Zamzar, which is slightly more troublesome. You will need to enter the YouTube video URL, select mp3 from the list of output format, and lastly enter your email address so that they will send you a download link when the file is ready.

I find Zamzar pretty slow compared to the two sites mentioned earlier, but it works perfectly nevertheless.

    I love using YouTube to find songs new songs. But one word about those YouTube video rippers are that some do not work all that well. So it is a good idea to bookmark more than one.

    I used to only use Zamzar before discovering other YouTube to mp3 converter. It works almost all the time, except for sometimes it got stuck and I’ll have to initiate the conversion all over again.

    Too bad, songs ripped from YouTube videos are often quite low in quality.

    OK, it’s ok. but currently i found that there’s a kind of tool which can automatic capture the streaming video and download them onto computer, and it’s free, e.g. Video Download Studio.
    btw, as extract music of a youtube video, i think it’s the same way.
