How to Extract MP3 from YouTube Video

Free way to extract audios from YouTube videos to MP3 format. This article provides you with a detailed guide on how to download and convert YouTube videos to MP3.

Updated Aug 07,2018 | by Micky

There are thousands of videos on YouTube. When you browse around YouTube, you may find some beautiful songs from YouTube. You may want to extract the audio as an MP3 file so that you can listen to the music on your way to your home/to the work, make a ringtone out of the YouTube video, add the MP3 to your music collection, and so on. 


Online Converting VS Video Converter

There are two ways to extract mp3 audio from YouTube video: One is extracting the audio online and the other is extracting the mp3 audio with video converter. Extracting mp3 online needs less time since you only need to paste the YouTube video URL there and choose the output format as MP3 to start the converting. Then you can download the converted MP3 audio or it will be sent to your email address. If you just need to extract the audio one time only or you do not have strict requirements about the audio quality, online converting is enough for you. But if you have many videos that needed to be converted into audio files and you want higher quality audio, it is recommended to use a video converter. 

Moreover, these video converters have several other advantages: they are much faster than online converting service, they don't require you to submit your email address thus to avoid email spam in the future, they also allow you to extract the audio from several videos simultaneously, and they usually offer more useful features that will help you on your work.

There are dozens, if not hundreds, of tools that can help you extract MP3 audio from YouTube video. And every YouTube converter has its own set of unique features, advantages, and disadvantages. Some are very slow at downloading and converting while others may be full of ads, or just confusing to use. If you're not sure which converter you could trust, then you can try IOTransfer.
