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.

January 09, 2011  |  By FF7Kotrt

 |  Version: Free YouTube to MP3 Converter 3.9.31

Pros

Converts youtube videos to MP3s as says, albiet a little slowly.

Keeps asking to install the toolbar upon closing. Not too annoying but have to remember to uncheck the boxes.

Summary

Did exactally what I wanted it to. The one-star reviews are there to incite fear, and that's all.

"Malware or not?"

January 08, 2011  |  By angus01011

 |  Version: Free YouTube to MP3 Converter 3.9.31

Pros

Unknown. I never tried it.

Cons

My anit-virus identified this as Malware. It may or may not be but I will assume that it is. I use Real Player alone with a program called "Free FLV Converter". It does the same thing and works well.

Summary

Maybe I am paranoid but as long as I can find something else that does the same thing and well known, I will use other software.
