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.

"Great program to get audio from YouTube for your DVDs."

May 17, 2011  |  By larimor

 |  Version: Free YouTube to MP3 Converter 3.9.37

Pros

This converter quickly downloads an MP3 file from a YouTube video and does it reliably. I have found it very useful when all I want is the soundtrack for my own personal use, ie as background music on personal videos.

Cons

Can't think of any drawbacks.

Summary

Need a soundtrack from YouTune? Use this converter

"Love It! Love It! Love It!"

May 16, 2011  |  By digitmiss

 |  Version: Free YouTube to MP3 Converter 3.9.37

Pros

This was one of several converters I tried, and without question it is the best. The interface is very easy to understand and the results are great. It's also great that you can convert to formats other than MP3.

Cons

I really didn't find anything about this FREE app that I didn't like.

Summary

If you're looking for a free program that can convert YouTube FLV format files into MP3's or MP4's then this is it. There are also other sites this program can be used with. It's really as simple as transferrring the url information from your browser into the converter. Download the file(s), choose the file format you want your downloaded files to be converted into, choose your download destination and enjoy!

"It does what it says it will do!"

May 15, 2011  |  By KLeCaon

 |  Version: Free YouTube to MP3 Converter 3.9.37

Pros

Very easy, if not altogether plain, interface. Accomplishes the task and leaves a quality product for you.

Cons

The plain interface - kinda boring. I wish it was a bit faster than it is.
it takes almost the time length of the song to download and convert. Maybe that's an accomplishment time-wise, I don't know.

Summary

If you want what this product does - GET IT! it's easy, non-intrusive, and gives a quality product!

"Spyware IS an issue."

May 14, 2011  |  By SpiroExDeus

 |  Version: Free YouTube to MP3 Converter 3.9.37

Pros

A great suite of easy to use tools

Cons

I OPTED NOT to install toolbar which IS optional but STILL get plasmoo REPEATEDLY as my default firefox search AND homepage. Don't deny it guys. It's spyware. Only reason it didn't happen on Chrome is that Chrome blocks attempts to change defaults.

Summary

I think there's a way of removing the repeated addition of homepage and search engine by hacking the browserchrome in Firefox. Or you could just ignore the homepage and search engine. I tend not to use homepages and plasmoo is STILL one amongst many of the dropdown search engines in firefox, it just happens to be the first. Whatever you do DON'T install the toolbar.

I think this is a low level threat. I don't think it spies on anything other than the searches you do through it. So more of a nuisance than a threat. I figure the suite is almost worth the hassle but if you have a paid package or can find something better for free then don't bother with this.
