It seems that downloading MP3 music from different platforms has now passed away. Since we know streaming, enjoying our favorite songs is something else. Even if it's at the cost of data. For example, YouTube has become a great tool for enjoying music and watching videos at the same time.
Many users use the video platform to listen to their favorite songs . But sometimes we need to use that music offline. And the truth is that it is not that complicated. Because there are countless tools, both from the web and in the form of applications that can help you make your wishes (or your tasks) come true.
Do you need to download music from YouTube to your computer, tablet or mobile device? Although you should be very clear that most content is subject to intellectual property rights, these tools can help you.
Download YouTube music from the web
If you connect to YouTube through a computer, it may be easiest to access a web page from which you can download the music in question.
Online Video Converter
Online Video Converter is a good tool to convert YouTube videos into music files, downloading them directly to your computer. All you have to do is access this page (you have the link to the beginning) and choose Convert a link / URL video .
When you access here, it will be necessary that you have gone to YouTube before to rescue the URL of the video in question. The one that includes the song you want to download. Enter the URL in the white box. And then select the type of file you want to convert to. It can be any of the following: .mp3, .aac, .ogg, .m4a, .wma, .flac, or .wav.
You should know, on the other hand, that there is the possibility of downloading the same video in another format, directly to your computer. The supported formats are : .mp4, .m4v, .mov, .avi, .flv, .mpg and .wmv. When you've made up your mind, click the Start button. You will see an indicator appear that says 'Video is processing'. The duration of the process will depend on the size of the video. In any case, when it is finished, you will only have to click on the Download button to save the audio on your computer.
And let's continue with another tool that will also be great for downloading audios . It is FLVTO. A much simpler website than the previous one. At least in terms of graphics. If you want to convert a YouTube URL into an audio file for your computer, simply go to the web.
Once inside, copy the link of the YouTube video that interests you. And insert it into the white box. Keep in mind that now you can choose the format you want.

Surely it is a slightly more complex tool, in the sense that it allows us to make cuts at the moment, before downloading the audio file. It's about Yout. To start using this website, find the YouTube address from which you want to download the song and paste it directly into the box. Next, click on the magnifying glass button.
What will appear to you now will be a kind of editor. From here you will have the possibility to play the video and trim wherever you want. This way, you won't have to take all the audio if you don't have to. This is very useful if what you need are only very specific parts of the video.
You will then have the possibility to choose the file format. You have the option to select MP3 (music), MP4 (video) or GIF (image). You can also select the quality (128 kbit / s, 192 kbit / s, 256 kbit / s and 320 kbit / s), the title of the song and the name of the artist or group.
Let's continue with another interesting tool. It's called MP3 Fiber and it works more or less like the others. This means that it does not have major complications. As soon as you access this page, you will have to insert the address or link of the YouTube video you are interested in getting the audio from.
Next, you will have to select the file type. You can do it in multiple formats , but there you will have the most common ones. You should know, on the other hand, that you can get the audio not only from YouTube videos. But also from Vimeo, VK, Dailymotion and other online platforms.
