Editors' Review

You may have noticed that many YouTube videos are actually music with some kind of visual accompaniment added, such as still image slideshows, cover art, psychedelic effects, and a particular favorite, a video camera pointed at a spinning turntable. You can download and save tunes from YouTube with the greatest of ease with YouTube Music Downloader -- videos, too. This free tool makes it easy to grab and save YouTube files to play later, share with your friends, and do the other things you can do with freely available content. But YouTube Music Downloader lets you quickly choose your audio output quality from a drop-down menu, which saves tons of time in two important ways: it eliminates the need to convert the raw download to your chosen format and bit rate, and it makes the job quick and easy enough that you'll actually save that song instead of just thinking about it. By the time you've hemmed and hawed, you could be done with the download.

YouTube Music Downloader's interface is pretty basic, which goes with the territory: fields for Video URL and Save To (destination folder) as well as the previously mentioned drop-down menu, which changes its options between audio and video formats when you check either MP3/Music or Video. A Status bar tracks the job; a check box tells the program to delete videos after conversion. A Skin button has Hue and Saturation sliders that can produce any interface color you'd like. Clicking Update informed us that ours was the program's latest version. That's all there is to YouTube Music Downloader's controls, except a Help button that accesses basic Web resources.

We browsed to YouTube, searched for a familiar tune, and copied its link from the search results. We pasted the URL into YouTube Music Downloader, selected our format (which depends on availability), and pressed Download and Convert (actually, "Download and Convert!" but we kept our powder dry until the results were in). The job completed in a few seconds. YouTube Music Downloader not only grabbed the tune but the cover art as well. The results more than earned the exclamation mark!

"Waste of time!"

September 26, 2012  |  By Pariah806

 |  Version: YouTube Music Downloader 3.0

Pros

Easy to delete from PC

Cons

Would not work, tried multiple videos, multiple formats, WILL NOT WORK!
download.cnet has been letting me down lately, maybe it's time to find somewhere new to download my programs from.

Summary

I've been using cnet for a loooong time, most of my recent downloads are full a mal-spyware, useless toolbar add-on crap and some programs don't even work at all. I'm done with this site!

"Good... if you don't care about audio or video"

September 21, 2012  |  By Donbuster66

 |  Version: YouTube Music Downloader 3.0

Pros

It downloads stuff quickly, comes with an uninstaller, which will be well used

Cons

has a bunch of junk to deselect, and then, after deselecting, you click continue, then you have to click cancel or it will install the crap anyways, tries to install limewire after you GET the final installer, and you go thurough all that JUST to get sound that sounds like its playing through water and 1080 p video that looks like 240p... if you're lucky

Summary

sucks, get a different piece of software

"Disappointing"

September 19, 2012  |  By Herkster69

 |  Version: YouTube Music Downloader 3.0

Pros

Worked well for a short while

Cons

Suddenly began to tell me the url's were invalid and would no longer work. I tried downloading a newer version, but it also said the url's were invalid and would not download the music or video.

Summary

Alright while it lasted, but the description said it would work from now on and it just stopped working all of a sudden. Turned out to be a waste of time.

"I found it worthless."

July 23, 2012  |  By Draco555

 |  Version: YouTube Music Downloader 3.0

Pros

Good if you want a highest possible bitrate of 192kbps... in the Ogg Vorbis format! It is a clean download and easy to use; it's just that. . .

Cons

The [current] highest possible bitrate of MP3 files is a whopping 64kbps. Unless you're going to download white noise, who wants that? It seems almost pointless to put out an MP3 converter that's only capable of 64kbps, and that's why, for me, it was worthless.

Summary

For me, with these YouTube to MP3 converters, the singlemost important aspect is the sound quality of the MP3 file it puts out. If the program cannot put out a file that's at least the same sound quality of the file originally uploaded, then I will skip it. I wasted time by downloading this, simply because it DOES NOT say in the description what the output quality is (which is probably why they omitted it from the description). Yes, I know this program is free, but come on; 64kbps?! If you want an easy to use program that does just what it says with no bells and whistles, yet you don't care about sound quality, then this is a decent download.
