The Free YouTube to MP3 Converter from DVDVideoSoft can easily download, convert, play and save audio tracks from YouTube and other FLV videos. The freeware supports various output formats for saved audio files, various quality options and the ability to download and convert multiple files in batch mode.
Download audio tracks – it’s as simple as that
To download the audio track of a video, simply copy and paste the video URL in your browser and paste it into the main window of the Free YouTube to MP3 Converter. In this way, the download list can be extended as long as you want before the download begins. If the converter detects that a video is part of a playlist or a YouTube channel by means of a URL, it suggests to add all single videos to the playlist/channel of the download list – so you can quickly and easily save whole rows of audio tracks by batch processing. A click on the start button starts the download. Depending on your settings you can start each download individually – or let all list entries work through one after the other. The conversion into the desired end format takes place directly after the download – the next download already starts during the conversion of a file.
Formats, quality, tags and more
Before the download starts, various settings can be made. For example, you can select the desired output format of the audio tracks stored in the download list – the Free YouTube to MP3 Converter can convert to MP3, M4A, AAC, WMA, OGG, WAV, FLAC and ALAC formats. The audio quality can also be defined – up to 320 Kb per second is possible. Both output format and quality naturally affect the size of the final saved file and the duration of the download.
The downloads tab in the program’s menu bar can be used to tag each individual download. For example, you can specify the title, artist, year and genre that will be noted in the finished file – an artwork that will finally be visible as a file thumbnail can also be defined.
In the options dialog you can also make further settings for the downloads or the Free YouTube to MP3 Converter itself. For example, you can define the default output folder in which converted files will be saved, or you can specify that the system should shut down automatically after the download process has finished.
