Often, songs or remixes are produced on YouTube but are not available anywhere for download. For people who want to listen to the audio in their favorite YouTube videos while offline, MediaHuman YouTube to MP3 Converter for Mac turns these videos into portable MP3 files, but with mixed results.
Available as freeware, the program supports multiple audio formats and allows you to select the desired sound quality, although this is ultimately limited by the nature of the original YouTube video selected. YouTube to MP3 Converter's download and installation are smooth, with minimal load time and space required. Simplistic at best, the interface's design leaves much to be desired. While the initial controls to select and download by URL are easy to manage, other options and choices are less clear. Despite this, the program's learning curve is short, and converting videos can be done within minutes of first loading the program. You have the ability to change the location where MP3 files are stored, but there are few other customizable features. All this could be overlooked if the program worked well, but unfortunately, its results are inconsistent. While some tracks turned into flawless MP3s that played well in iTunes, others were incomplete and left segments of songs with no sound.
For a person who is looking for a simple, free program and is willing to put up with some inconsistent results, MediaHuman YouTube to MP3 Converter for Mac may be a workable option.
