Converting YouTube Videos to MP3

Before getting started you’ll need to find a video and copy its URL (from the address bar or via the “share” section).


After you’ve found a video that you want to convert to MP3, it’s just a matter of pasting the URL into the “Insert Video Link” box on Ytmp3. For this example I’m using Make Tech Easier’s own video titled How to Combine Two Scanned Documents Together in OS X.

When you click on the “Convert to MP3” button, you’ll see a progress bar displayed. It happens so fast, though, that if you turn away you’ll probably miss it.

That’s it. You’re now ready to download the video.

Downloading Audio Files from Ytmp3

When you click on the red “Download” button, the video starts to download immediately. Depending on your browser settings, it may automatically download and save to a specified place, or you’ll get a pop-up so that you can choose where you want to save it.


After you have successfully downloaded the video, you can click on “Convert Another Video” or just go back to the homepage by clicking on the logo. Either way, you’ll be able to paste in a new URL and go through the same process.

After the download is done you can use YTmp3 to convert another youtube video to a mp3 high quality file

I really appreciate the clean design of the website; everything is above the fold and within easy reach. The conversion and download process is straightforward and distraction-free (even with my ad blocker disabled).

Playing Downloaded Audio Files

As a gentle reminder, you’re downloading the video in MP3 format, not MP4, so you’ll only have the audio and no actual video once downloaded.


The audio quality is crystal clear without any static or distortion. Honestly, I actually felt like I was watching the original video because it sounded just like it.

What’s even more convenient is that Ytmp3’s site is responsive and works great on mobile devices, so you can download audio files there and listen when on the go.

Final Thoughts

Ytmp3 is a very simple tool for converting YouTube videos to MP3 files; the site has a true focus on speed, convenience and making the conversion process enjoyable. Besides having to be careful about the videos that you do choose to download (pay very close attention to the video’s license), I can’t find any cons to using it.


Converting a YouTube video to MP3 shouldn’t be a lengthy or complicated process. Thanks to Ytmp3, it isn’t. It’s as simple as finding a legal video to download, pasting the URL, converting to MP3, and downloading to your computer or mobile device.

I’d love to know how Ytmp3 compares to similar tools that you’ve used. Feel free to share in the comments!
