MP3 Rocket's Creative Commons filtering lets you download and convert legally available music from YouTube while screening out potentially copyrighted material. It can convert YouTube downloads into MP3s and similar formats that can play on nearly any device. While this freeware worked well, the Creative Commons filtering sometimes excluded non-copyrighted material because it hadn't been designated as such. A toolbar we tried but failed to decline spoiled the overall experience, too.

Pros

Win-win:

Musicians and record companies have posted a lot of really good music under Creative Commons licensing, and they'd be thrilled if you'd download it. It's marketing, and everybody wins.

Misses are hits:

Even when we didn't find certain artists or recordings, our searches of legally available downloads never failed to find something interesting.

Ringtones:

A new feature in MP3 Rocket converts any downloaded tune into a ringtone.

Cons

Missed the mark:

The optional Creative Commons filtering excluded useful results, such as tunes dubbed from non-digital sources like LPs and tapes. We failed to find any copyrighted material with the filtering turned off, though it's certainly out there.

Unwanted toolbar:

Despite a checkbox option, one of the "extra" downloads could not be declined. Such extras pay the bills, but software that installs other software in spite of your choice is a nonstarter for many users.

Sound quality:

Music downloaded from YouTube and converted to MP3s ranges in quality from good enough to not bad, but don't expect high fidelity.

Bottom Line

MP3 Rocket can find, download, and convert a lot of interesting free music from YouTube. You may not find what you were looking for, but at least it won't be copyrighted!

"Does Not Work With Windows 8.1"

October 08, 2016  |  By Major Geek

2016-10-08 22:22:48  |  By Major Geek

 |  Version: MP3 Rocket 7.3.2.0

Pros

free
free
free

Cons

Does not work well under Windows 8.1. Duplicates the program's windows over and over making it impossible to read or click some options.

The downloads for music collections are stupid because songs are not separate but contained in one single long (1-2 hour) mp3.

Summary

Don't bother.

"No support for Paid members-Still Lacks many options!"

June 30, 2016  |  By coolvibes2020

2016-06-30 15:15:05  |  By coolvibes2020

 |  Version: MP3 Rocket 7.3.2.0

Pros

Downloader and Video/Audio Trimmer

Cons

Support is Non-existent these days, sent several support emails, no reply at all any more, just horrible service for paying members.
Program is still a huge memory hog, and with very few updates, and more freezing problems, and is still lacking many good new features etc, unless I missed, even with most recent long awaited update, hardly has any video or video sound enhancements stil, hardly any options or filters or effects avail to auto enhance video and sound problems, for videos with feedback and hiss noises etc.
Still no Android player version like similar programs have, that has addtl video and audio effects like video/audio Drag and drop playlists,Crossfading & (video Fade out options).

Summary

Again Even emailed Mp3Rocket support , about some of these many issues and features lacking a few times, but no response at all. I remember a few years back, when Mp3rocket used to be a great company with good support, not sure what happened to them, but why would someone purchase this program or any of their products, that is lacking so many features, and no support given at all!
**Online Video Downloading is a great new feature, but still only works on very limited websites, most similiar downloaders/converters can easily download from  MTV.COM, DAILY MOTION, VEVO,BET.COMVH1.COM,and even addtl  hundreds, and even thousands of websites.
need more hot video sites, video and audio enhancements features, also more editing HD output features.
***One major Bug found*** The video download and convert feature is very very slow for some reason, tried downloading a couple of small 3-5 mon youtube videos, in high quality of 1920 HD, but but even with MP Rocket the only program running on my WIN 7 HOME PC 3.5 GB ram, and using Verizon FIOS 50mb SPEED, it has taken sometimes, like 3 hours for just 2 small 2-3 min online videos conversion.
Really need these addtl superhot video options, found in similar programs,
--(Video in and fade out), feature mainly at end of video downloads, so do not have to use an addtl editor program,to edit and re-encode just to fade out video at end, instead of all videos ending abrubtly, which looks terrible.
--If this program add some hot features
