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.

"Full of spyware"

December 16, 2012  |  By clsid

 |  Version: Free YouTube to MP3 Converter 3.11.36.1201

Pros

The software itself does work perfectly. Downloads from YouTube in a variety of formats and even downloads video too. It can also work with playlists.

Cons

As good as the software is, to all the people wondering why this is free it's because it is full of spyware. Even if you say no to everything during the install process, Firefox warned me that a program was installing an Add-on without my permission. It also installs a Log Report tool that sends all kinds of system info, including browsers you use back to the company that creates it.

Summary

As I said, good software but beware because it is not free by a long shot. It is supported by advertising and user profiling. Better use one of the online video converters.

"Works Perfect !!!"

December 09, 2012  |  By Timotej99

 |  Version: Free YouTube to MP3 Converter 3.11.36.1201

Pros

I'm professional DJ. Using this program already 9 months.
Always worked perfectly for me. Easy interface, good quality of converted videos into mp3, many options - impressive, and it's free.

Cons

I'm trying all the time to be up to the latest version (important for this kind of programs)

The only thing that bugs my mind, is how DVDvideoSoft is able to provide us this mother-of-conversion-program without any sort of payment. :-)

Summary

Highly Recommended !!!

"Works great!"

December 05, 2012  |  By Sukki007

 |  Version: Free YouTube to MP3 Converter 3.11.36.1201

Pros

This program has always worked perfectly for me. Easy interface, mostly user friendly, and it's free.

Cons

Unless you're careful, it will add an ever-increasing amount of bloatware along with the download. There is an option to uncheck the extra stuff, but you must be vigilant.

Summary

Great program, as long as you're careful.

"Pretty darn good software"

December 04, 2012  |  By xagreus

 |  Version: Free YouTube to MP3 Converter 3.11.36.1201

Pros

I use this program to get the audio from lectures on youtube. It took a 213 Mb video file and turned it into a 93Mb mp3 (Lame Standard Quality mp3, VBR, 48kHz, Joint Stereo - one of many output options). Not bad. The first mp3 I made favored the left side (probably a result of how the lecture was recorded), so I used mono settings for a second conversion, and it worked much better (32 Kbits/s, 44.1 kHz) - down to 19.5 Mb.

The various online converters either didn't work or timed out before I could download the audio (the conversion took 15-20 minutes - maybe more).

I was also able to enter the video's URL, which was perfect for my purposes. A different free program that I had installed before this one allowed me to search by artist name or song title, but not by URL, so it wasn't what I needed.

I'm still exploring this program's many options - impressive.

Cons

It doesn't take as long as the websites I tried to use, but it still takes quite a while. Also, I didn't find an option for volume leveling.

But those aren't big issues.

Summary

It's quite a good program - I recommend it.
