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.

"Used to be great, now packed with malware!"

October 20, 2013  |  By railer54320

 |  Version: Free YouTube to MP3 Converter 3.12.13.925

Pros

Once the SmileysWeLove malware is removed - which is uncomfortable and requires more than a casual user knowledge of your OS - it goes smoothly and does a great job.

Cons

Bundled with malware. Thus I'm giving half star as it is utterly unacceptable.

Summary

This software used to be really good. It makes me so sad to see a quality product turn into something sneaky and malicious. It is very unprofessional and unethical of DVDVideoSoft Ltd. What a disappointment! So far this was the software when it came to quick and easy audio conversion or YouTube download, but now not only I am switching, but I'm persuading all my relatives and close friends to stop using this piece of sad letdown.

Updated on Oct 20, 2013

OK, I wanted to edit my review because I think I was coming off a bit harsh. So I haven't checked any boxes that I want to install any toolbars, yet I've still had to remove SmileysWeLove and an other SqueekyChocolate, LLC product from 3 different places of my computer. What's worse I can see myself when visiting parents, uncles and aunts it will be my task to remove these extra weird bars from their gmail's and facebook's. I guess this is the price when you're using free software.

"Easy to use, fast & good"

October 10, 2013  |  By ReaLighT

 |  Version: Free YouTube to MP3 Converter 3.12.13.925

Pros

it's very useful application for everyone. User friendly simple interface is easy to understand for kids. Button on YouTube is great simple way to download MP3. But user can paste URL on this program's main window. and it's very powerful tool, because it has option to download, user can change or choose audio quality and type. downloading and converting progress is faster than any other programs, so i very appreciate this application. and user can download many videos in same time, it's good., Works with many video sites, download, convert, pause, resume, cancel, tag for downloaded files, download history, open download link list from test file, auto-download option, shut down after conversion option etc. it's very powerful tool, i recommend this application to everyone who asked "how to download and convert video files?" from me, it's the best solution!

Cons

there is only 1 cons here is this application haven't any cons ;)

Summary

it works perfectly, updating for changes of sites, fixing bugs, and now this application is best at all., and it's still free for download and use! it's awesome!

"Believe very good"

October 10, 2013  |  By rj-work

 |  Version: Free YouTube to MP3 Converter 3.12.13.925

Pros

Haven't had time to check latest version for a while but last time I did it was excellent. I want to keep it up-to-date and hope to use it again one day.

Cons

None that I remember.

Summary

Haven't had time to check latest version of this prog for a while but last time I did it was excellent. I want to keep it up-to-date and hope to use it again one day. Thenks!

BTW: in your reviews please don't call all music "SONGS" - much good music is not singing but symphonies, concertos, band, organ, piano ETC.....!! Agreed - some of the best music is vocal - choral etc (eg Bach, Mozart, Schubert) and conversely MOST modern vocal music ("songs"?) is not real good!! So what about the more general term "MUSIC" in future reviews, not just the very limited term "songs" - PLEASE?? - many thanks. RJ.

"Best software for downloading MP3s from YouTube"

October 10, 2013  |  By Janolehuebner

 |  Version: Free YouTube to MP3 Converter 3.12.13.925

Pros

Fast and very very comfortable.
No unnecessary Stuff in the Software itself.
I'm using it for a very long time now and have barely seen better software.

Cons

The new "Installed Software" overview sucks. The Studio Manager thing was a lot better.

And there is a lot of stuff you don't want on your Computer in the installer. (Toolbars etc.)

Summary

- The software is very good.
- The new "Installed Software" overview sucks
- You have to actually read what you're doing in the installer.

"Just an all round excellent, easy-to-use product"

October 10, 2013  |  By slartebartfast

 |  Version: Free YouTube to MP3 Converter 3.12.13.925

Pros

It always works well for me. You can adjust the settings to download exactly what you want. Has never 'crashed' or refused to work or interfered with any other utility running at the same time.

Cons

Be careful when installing to avoid 'foist-ware'. But then an awful lot of 'not free' programs do the same thing.

Summary

Download it - use it. Worry free.
