How To Convert YouTube Videos into MP3 Files

This how-to article will explain the steps required to use a free program on the Internet that allows you to convert your favorite YouTube videos into MP3 files. Then you can add them to your iPod or other MP3 players.

Step 1

Download and install the 'YouTube to MP3' converter from the following website:

 It is 100% free and the full version. You will not need to pay for this whatsoever. 

Step 2

Go to the YouTube website and open the page for a video clip that you like. On the right side of the page you should see the comments box. Under this box there is a section for the URL and Embed. Copy whatever is written in the URL section.

Step 3

Open up the YouTube to MP3 conversion program.

Step 4

Right-click inside the "Input URLs" box and click on 'paste.'

Step 5

Set your output folder. If you do not know how to do this, click on the 'Browse' button, scroll to the top on the right side, and click on Desktop. This will cause whatever you convert to be saved onto your desktop.

Step 6

The presets has a few options. If you do not know what this is, or know that you prefer to have your music in the standard accepted quality, then skip this step; if you'd like to change your settings, read on.

MP3 - High Quality: This is the highest quality offered by this program.

MP3 - Standard Quality: This was discussed above.

MP3 - Economy: This converts videos into low quality MP3 files.

WAV - If you prefer your music in Windows Audio files then this option is for you.

Step 7

Click on download. Your conversion will now begin. Once this is done, a message will appear informing you of the completed conversion. Check your desktop - you will now have your converted MP3 files waiting for you. 

Enjoy yourself. This is probably one of the best free programs I have found online.
