Editors' Review


Free YouTube to MP3 Converter Studio is a quick music downloader with just enough features to make the grade. It will let you easily fill your hard drive with tunes you find on YouTube, but it would be nice if it let you grab the video with the audio. If you don't need that from your YouTube downloader, this app will fit most needs.

This program lets you grab videos right from YouTube and download them to your computer. Since it only grabs the audio from the videos, it works remarkably quickly; no download took more than a minute for us when we were downloading videos three to five minutes in length. It didn't sacrifice any of the video's audio quality, either. Free YouTube to MP3 Converter Studio automatically detects any links in your clipboard and gives you a blank screen, so you can plug as many links as you want inside. It also adds itself to Internet Explorer as an add-on, but it doesn't support other browsers, which was a disappointment. In addition to two add-on programs you have to dodge during installation, the app disguises advertisements as buttons for features. Outside of that, the app's menu isn't much to look at, but all of the options are easy to find.

That harkens back to this app's commitment to substance over style, which will be great for people who just need to download music quickly. If that sounds like something you want, Free YouTube to MP3 Converter Studio is an excellent app to choose. Still, if you want videos as well as audio files, you'll have to look elsewhere.

"Best YouTube mp3 downloader there is...!!!"

March 07, 2016  |  By geades

I've been using this for years and nothing else comes close to it's ease of use, speed, and simplicity. I've never had a problem with any trojans or adware that others speak of at all, possibly because I have ad blocker installed on my browser. I have this installed on an XP machine, and a machine running Windows 7 SP1 and it works great on both. No other YouTube mp3 converter/downloader has ever stayed on my machines for any longer than it's taken to test them, as none has worked as good as this program.

The most difficult thing about this program is locating the download link for it, which you can find here http://******/1TZfXnJ


1. Hard to locate in a google search as you have to type in "Free Youtube to MP3 Converter Studio"
2. Hard to locate download link for the program on CNET download page. http://******/1TZfXnJ
3. People who give the program negative reviews not based on the program itself and what it does, but try to scare people off by making claims of it having adware and trojans and so on, which is something I've never had a problem with in all the years I've used it. No scan of my computer has ever shown any adware present, and no ads have ever popped up on me at all. Ever.


It's a great program... get it, and you'll be glad you did. No other Youtube mp3 download program comes close to this in simplicity, speed, and ease of use. You can direct which folder your downloads go into in the settings page, and simply copying a URL adds the youtube file into the download queue. Simple, easy, fast... the best program of this type out there there there is.

It works just for it's intended purpose, and is easy to use. I didn't get any problems with it changing my browser or putting adware on my computer!


you have to read everything carefully during the installation (Read the terms of service!!!!) to make sure you don't download any junk stuff... But hey, a developer has to make some money too right?


Great program, just be careful during the installation.

"Contains a Generic Trojan"

How can we say something positive about a program that is free only because it gathers personal information and generates advertisements based on the type of pages that you visit and your viewing habits? It rips music from video and it works. Tape recorders do too.


CNET is becoming too friendly with this kind of program. There was a time when programs that contained virus, trojan and malware signatures easily found by low quality detection programs like Norton would not be allowed on CNET. So what has happened?


Yeah, it's free and it worked before I removed it. But it will cost you in terms of privacy, time waiting on corporate masters advertisement, and computer resources. If these people really wanted to know what I like and what I don't like, why don't they just send me a survey. They know how to reach me; they have been spamming my email address since before we had a word for "spam."
