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.

"Wonderful converter"

July 03, 2010  |  By milocep

 |  Version: Free YouTube to MP3 Converter 3.4.10.153

Pros

it is very simple from the starting point of downloading to the intsalation and then converting the videos.

Cons

I didn't recognized anything that I dislike from the converter

Summary

Its simplicity makes the converter a wonder. My first experience with this new free youTube to mp3 converter was done it with a click to downloaded into my CPU and once installed another few clicks and done it. I am very happy watching my selections from youTube in my computer. Thank you CNET. My recommendation goes with 5 stars. Bingo!!!

"Works, but beware if you want rid of it!..."

June 30, 2010  |  By Kyuzo124

 |  Version: Free YouTube to MP3 Converter 3.4.10.153

Pros

Actually does convert Youtube videos to MP3. Still, I will try other applications due to the programs cons.

Cons

Very difficult to uninstall. VERY nagging windows pop up wanting you to install several toolbars. The program scatters folders in several locations during install seemingly to make uninstall difficult.

Summary

I tried this program and it DID work. You simply paste the URL of your target video into the program's box and wait while the program converts the video to MP3. However, immediately after installing the program pop-up windows began appearing wanting me to install various toolbars related to the program. I decided to uninstall the program . There is the real sticker. The program does not want to uninstall cleanly. There were several file folders scattered between Document and Program folders. I had to manually search and eliminate each file. I generally avoid programs which play such games as I wonder what else they are up to.

User beware.

"This download adds 3 applications to your computer."

May 25, 2010  |  By harvey1939

 |  Version: Free YouTube to MP3 Converter 3.4.10.153

Pros

It is free.

Cons

I do not like the fact it downloads 3 applications and was not warned. One of the applications was "Uninstall" so as to hid the fact it was for this product.

Summary

www.Dirpy.com is also free and a heck of a lot better.

"If converts songs, etc. to MP3. Works well."

May 24, 2010  |  By glen4716

 |  Version: Free YouTube to MP3 Converter 3.4.10.153

Pros

Pretty easy to use, but you need to experiment with it to get it right. Pretty easy to figure out and it allows you to put the file in Windows Media Player. Much better than what I had, which was nothing.

Cons

It is rather slow. Takes some time to download several songs.

Summary

It is simple to use, but perhaps a few instructions would be nice. So far, I have found it fun and easy to use, but it sometimes takes a little extra work to find a converted file. The procedure is quite easy. Copy and past the link and after it is downloaded, click on the file folder. Neat program!
