Editors' Review

YouTube hosts thousands of songs in all genres, many posted with video montages, slideshows, and sometimes shots of a spinning turntable. While the quality is hardly the best, the quantity is staggering; YouTube is often the fastest and easiest way to hear a song. That's where DVDVideoSoft's Free YouTube to MP3 Converter steps in. Fast, simple, and free, it quickly downloads, converts, and saves audio tracks from YouTube videos as MP3s of several quality levels. It extracts audio from any YouTube video, not just songs, of course. You can save clips and play them on your audio player; and don't get us started on the funny noises! The point is that Free YouTube to MP3 Converter makes the job so fast and easy that you'll actually grab that audio instead of just thinking about it.

Free YouTube to MP3 Converter has what we like to see in tools of its type: a plain and simple interface, nothing fancy, all business. The main window told us to paste a YouTube URL inside it, so we did, after first browsing to YouTube and selecting a song posting. Each URL we pasted into the program appeared in the main window's list view. An interesting Paste button let us automatically queue and download items. We could edit Tags, when available, and select an Auto option. Drop-down lists let us select Format and Quality. Free YouTube to MP3 Converter supports AAC, FLAC, WAV, OGG, and other formats, with many more options available on the Preset Editor, including the ability to add new ones.

Free YouTube to MP3 made quick work of downloading, converting, and saving our tunes. You can only do so much with YouTube audio, of course, but these sounded fine -- hardly CD-quality, but good enough for MP3s.

"What happened?"

November 07, 2012  |  By deoarby

 |  Version: Free YouTube to MP3 Converter 3.11.32.918

Pros

Used to be great!

Cons

Lately, not so much

Summary

I've used this for over a year. Recent downloads have no track listings. Just "media" with some numbers. Is there a glitch or is it me?

"it used to be great"

October 09, 2012  |  By mko

 |  Version: Free YouTube to MP3 Converter 3.11.32.918

Pros

multiple downloads
multiple formats & quality

Cons

tries to install unwanted programs
unnecessary updates

Summary

it's more of a "fed up" thing. dvdsoft always tries to install programs to usurp your how you browse for media. as careful as i am to UNcheck all those installs, they got one by me anyway and added an extension to my chrome. i finally got fed up. there are other options

i also had a hard time uninstalling, asked support, and they linked me to yet another uninstaller.

most of these nuisances come when they try to use updates for their opportunity, and they update all too often imo. when it's time for an update it renders the current program inoperable.

i've had it

"Free YouTube to MP3 Converter without ASK Toolbar"

October 05, 2012  |  By Install_Helper

 |  Version: Free YouTube to MP3 Converter 3.11.32.918

Pros

Brilliant Program if you avoid installing crapware.

Install without crapware walkthrough:

Welcome Window > next > Licence Agreement Window > Accept > next > Screen Default installation position (If OK) > next > Window DVDVideosoft Toolbar > Uncheck first Tick box "Install DVDVideosoft Toolbar"; all tick boxes will be unchecked now > next > Window Smart Accelerator > select none > returns to previous window (but tick boxes remain unchecked) > next > Window of some more crapware: Uncheck licence agreement > next > Window which shortcuts to install (default was ok to me) > Installation proceeds
After install remove file (position for XP, Win7 may differ, Win8 will never fly): C:\Program Files\Common Files\DVDVideoSoft\bin\SubscriptionOffer.exe

Cons

None if installed properly

"Worked fine for me."

October 02, 2012  |  By garyleebrown

 |  Version: Free YouTube to MP3 Converter 3.11.32.918

Pros

Free!

This worked for some YouTube videos, that some of the free online conversion websites would not work for.

Cons

A little slow on converting some 90+ minute videos... it took 15 minutes or more on these long videos. But I'm not complaining since it's free and I don't need to use it often.

"Does exactly what it says on the tin"

September 24, 2012  |  By stuthorn

 |  Version: Free YouTube to MP3 Converter 3.11.32.918

Pros

Simple, quick, and very easy to use.

Cons

None so far.

Summary

Seems to be a fair few people on here complaining about malware and tool bars. All I can say is look and read what is in the window before indiscriminately pressing next. De-select the inevitable extra software and changes to browser settings before installing. Then you won't look like a plonker by posting silly comments on the review.
