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.

"Major Security Issue."

April 20, 2011  |  By Urapandr

 |  Version: Free YouTube to MP3 Converter 3.9.35

Pros

Does what it says it does without flaw - most of the time

Cons

Obvious personal security threat is obvious.

Summary

I've been doing a bit of singling out what has been the cause of a recent flood of DOS attacks on my router. This bullcrap program is the cause of it.

[DOS attack: STORM] attack packets in last 20 sec from ip [#.#.#.#]

It appears as though the program somehow changes security settings on your router and pretty much broadcasts your IP address. Which would technically be able to be picked up by the conversion server. Who knows what they do with that information, but...

Testing process: After finding out that I had DOS attacks on my router, I reinstalled a fresh copy of windows XP pro sp3 (legitimate license ) on a test computer, and reset my router. The DOS attacks went away. A week's worth of common every day use lead to no DOS attacks until the first program I suspected... which was this, was installed. Not but an hour later after a single file conversion I was receiving DOS attacks on my router.

What this means to you: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Denial-of-service_attack

What this means for CNETs credibility for posting this painfully unsafe software: Self explanatory.

"It really Works! Simple to Use."

April 20, 2011  |  By Thebucko

 |  Version: Free YouTube to MP3 Converter 3.9.35

Pros

I was able to use it immediately after installation. Easy to use and logical. It is not as fast as a normal download, taking about twice as long, but it does the job.

Cons

I had to load another Microsoft program (Net Framework 3.5) as a requirement before I could download & install YouTube MP3 Converter. Other than that, nothing!

Summary

Another great program that does what it says for free.
