How to save mp3 files from YouTube music videos

On 27 February, 2007 by Carol

A while ago I posted an entry called : “Howto : Quick .flv video file conversion” and it was about converting Youtube .flv files into ..AVI, .MP4, .MOV , etc…. with FLV Online converter.

There is one other thing that this converter can do : converting music video files into mp3’s so you can listen them on your mp3 player.

How to do it :

It’s simple. Go to Youtube.com and find your music video file. Copy the URL of that file.

Open FLV Online converter a paste the direct link from the file and click on the “Convert to” button and choose MP3.

Now all you have to do is wait untill the conversion is done. Save your mp3 and rename it.

      Thanks for your message. But I like using a streaming audio capture to save mp3 from YouTube videos straightly.

      It works for both mac and Windows OS.

      Yeah, this is a good way to save music from YouTube. Autually, we can also save audio from video with a streaming audio recorder.

    Try Vdownloader instead: http://www.vdownloader.es/. You shouldn't have problems with it.

    Thanks for the tip, but after 2 tries, the convertor created .MP3 files with a size of 0 bytes – obviously not a playable music file after downloading!

    Aries, try vDownloader instead: http://www.vdownloader.es/.

    The online app caused me some issues last time i tried so i don’t think you are doing anything wrong…maybe is just the app.

    Have a look at this entry too: http://www.carolsvault.com/youtube-tools-collection/

    YouTubeRobot.com today announces YouTube Robot 2.0, a tool that enables you to download video from YouTube.com onto your PC, convert it to various formats to watch it when you are on the road on mobile devices like mobile phone, iPod, iPhone, Pocket PC, PSP, or Zune.

    YouTube Robot allows you to search for videos using keywords or browse video by category, author, channel, language, tags, etc. When you find something noteworthy, you can preview the video right in YouTube Robot and then download it onto the hard disk drive. The speed, at which you will be downloading, is very high: up to 5 times faster than other software when you download a single file and up to 4 times faster when you download multiple files at a time.

    Manual download is not the only option with YouTube Robot. You may as well schedule the download and conversion tasks to be executed automatically, even when you are not around. Downloading is followed by conversion to the format of your choice and uploading videos to a mobile device (if needed). For example, you can plug in iPod, select the video, go to bed, and when you wake up next morning, your iPod will be ready to play new YouTube videos.
