    "Best Youtube to Mp3 Converter I have used"

    April 11, 2011  |   By wonderbrawl1919

    Pros

    -Easy to use, just open the program, copy the youtube link and it adds it to the list (no need to even paste the link)
    -You can download entire playlists, your favourites list, or entire channel's music at once.
    - 320kbps mp3 or wav = high quality

    Cons

    It can be slow sometimes (but not as slow as a lot of other youtube to mp3)
    cannot find a way to download a selection of videos from a playlist rather than the entire playlist - though this "con" is of a feature not available in other Youtube to mp3

    Summary

    Excellent all round program. I went to youtube, copied the link to my favourites list and downloaded them all in one go using this program. It took about 2.5 hours (about 140 songs) but it did it in the background, and it would have taken a hell of a lot longer to do so manually with some other program.

    Also has the option of inserting the tags to the song before the download, making it easy to stick straight into your music folder so your media player can pick it up straight away.

    The best thing is that the mp3 output can be set to 64, 128, 192, 256 or 320 kbps, or even for wav output. I use mp3 320, as this makes a noticeable difference when listening to music downloaded from "HD" Youtube videos. The wav option might be a waste of time as Youtube sound quality is no better than 320kbps mp3 anyway.

    A lot of other Youtube to Mp3 converters that claim to download in "high quality" do so with 192 or 256kbps.
