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.

"Won't UN-install -- HELP!!!"

June 11, 2011  |  By TheZeroCard

 |  Version: Free YouTube to MP3 Converter 3.2.1.59

Pros

None whatsoever.

Cons

1. It never once worked.
2. I keep trying to uninstall it and it keeps coming back.
3. My top-of-the-line AV program missed this one entirely.

Summary

C-Net is being irresponsible for continuing to offer this thing on their site. I no longer trust C-Net any more than I trust the makers of the YouTube to MP3 thingy.

ONE Star -- only because ZERO stars is not allowed.

"Seems nice at first..."

September 08, 2009  |  By Swimmin2009

 |  Version: Free YouTube to MP3 Converter 3.2.1.59

Pros

Offers high quality music ripping

Cons

Occasionally rips songs at a slow pace and is a PUP

Summary

Never trusting this product ever again have been using it for quite a while now and has left me very unsatisfied with it's potential threats causing program crashes. By ignoring these warnings at a early start it only makes it worse if you'd wish to prevent harm on your system don't go for the hype. Personal experience.

"Simplistic but has one flaw"

September 07, 2009

 |  Version: Free YouTube to MP3 Converter 3.2.1.59

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

This is a handy tool especially for us DJs who post and like hearing mixes other people have done that they can't easily distribute and for getting rare and hard to find stuff plus i can listen to those great evolution VS ID debates in my car now on the way to college. There are other FLV to MP3 converters that do the sound better but none let you download straight from YouTube's vast library.
