Editors' Review

+

The minor quibbles we have with Free YouTube to MP3 Converter have nothing to do with its functionality. This effective freeware is ready to go right out of the box, but can be easily customized by the user.

No effort has been made to dress up the program's utilitarian interface, which consists of seven large buttons, a few fields, and a drop-down menu. A plain text box advises users to paste URLs in the field, and this is all the onscreen guidance you'll need. Once you see the video title in the field, you click Download and the program goes to work. The process wasn't lightening quick, but considering the size of some of our test files, it wasn't bad. Converted files played without a hitch.

The beauty of this converter lies in its simple set up. By default, converted files are saved into the program's folder in My Documents, and they retain the name of the source video. The files are saved as MP3s, normal quality. These settings are easily changed, though, with quick-access buttons and a drop-down menu. The most work a user might have to do is fill out the fields in the optional Tags fields for artist, title, track, and other information.

Sadly, the program doesn't integrate with your browser, but you can opt to have it automatically pick up URLs from the clipboard, which eliminates one step from the cutting and pasting process. It also installs the Ask.com Toolbar and resets your home page to the Ask.com Web site by default, so if you don't want these extras, you'll have to uncheck some boxes during the installation process. These inconveniences are offset by the fact that this program is not only effective, it also costs nothing to use. We highly recommend Free YouTube to MP3 Converter for any user.

"Super-Easy to use, Great Product"

May 30, 2012  |  By saffronreynolds

 |  Version: Free YouTube to MP3 Converter 3.11.22

Pros

Does what it claims! MP3 files turned out MUCH better than I anticipated. I like that you have a wide selection of qualities to choose from.

Cons

Tricky installation. It tries to sneak a few extra things in on you, and obviously other CNET users fell into the traps You do NOT have to download ANY of that extra stuff. Make sure you uncheck everything. On one page when you uncheck the first box, the others will become unclickable. Just re-do in a different order.

Summary

I used it on 5 videos so far and got supremely good quality mp3s. I'm pleased. A normal length video seems to download in about a minute and a half on my computer.

"A great program ,but..."

May 22, 2012  |  By sharp8

 |  Version: Free YouTube to MP3 Converter 3.11.22

Pros

It's easy to work does a great job and if you download the whole " Free Studio" program , there's virtually no device you can't put your movies or music on . I've had it for a few years now and I love it !

Cons

The only bad thing I've ever found is in the "toolbar " , and I never install those anyway , ( malware )

Summary

Install it without the toolbar and you'll be rewarded with a versatile ,downloader that you can use on your mp3's , phone , it has a special I-pod section , and something new -a 3-d section , one stop shopping my friend!

"Simplistic but has one flaw"

May 22, 2012  |  By Gennykmh

 |  Version: Free YouTube to MP3 Converter 3.11.22

Pros

It's easy to use and gives people another way to get music without paying for it..very handy for downloading rare and hard to find remixes people did on their own and posted on YouTube but please if you can buy a song then do so.

Cons

The sound quality of the finished MP3 is pretty crappy so you'll have to tweak it a bit.

Summary

Sweet software! The best thing is that there is no installer so no need to install anything, just run the program.

 |  Version: Free YouTube to MP3 Converter 3.11.22

Able to download YouTube videos and convert into MP3 format.

"Does what is says, adds a lot of other stuff"

May 20, 2012  |  By avidrine

 |  Version: Free YouTube to MP3 Converter 3.11.22

Pros

Simple and easy to use. Does exactly what it says, and even imports it into iTunes.

Cons

Every time you close it, it asks to install a toolbar, and it installed a program I told it not to install.

Summary

I don't appreciate programs that install other programs without my knowledge or consent. To me, that's malware, no matter if the program itself is harmless. I appreciate that it was free, worked well, and did what it advertised, but installing programs without my consent is intolerable. I uninstalled it and will be watching for any more problems from this program.

"Simple. Does what it says."

May 14, 2012  |  By Tracie365

 |  Version: Free YouTube to MP3 Converter 3.11.22

Pros

It does just what it says and pulls just the soundtrack from YT videos. Super simple to run.

Cons

Free version is very slow....of course it doesn't help that I have AT&T DSL, which sucks. It may work faster when I switch to Xfinity.

Summary

Happy I got it. Works just fine.
