Chapter in this post:
How many hours have I (and certainly you too) spent watching exciting YouTube videos? Countless hours! It often happens that a song that is used is particularly remembered. But of course you don't want to go to YouTube or bookmarks every single time to hear the song. Instead, there are so-called YouTube MP3 converters which - as the name suggests - can be used to convert the video into an MP3 format.
In terms of sound quality, you are of course dependent on what YouTube offers. Usually (I've read) 126 kbps AAC in an MP4 container or 155-165 kbps Opus in a WebM container.
For Windows users, there are numerous download options, both free and paid software, to quickly and, above all, pull songs from YouTube videos in large quantities. As a Mac user, I have also chosen a nice program that I have been using myself for a long time. It is the YouTube to MP3 converter. The converter is not only available for Windows and Ubunto, but also, as mentioned, for Mac users.
The highlight: the converter is available free of charge. The whole thing in a version that I can personally recommend despite the lack of "extras". However, if you want to buy the premium service of the YouTube converter, you can use it to further accelerate the conversion of the videos to MP3s. However, I have to honestly say that I am personally absolutely satisfied with the free version of the YouTube converter and find it more than sufficient.
The endless expanses of YouTube ... you know that. Then some (by some I mean countless) pieces of music come together that you would like to collect on your own hard drive. You could now easily use a freely available online converter, but the YouTube to MP3 Converter for Mac offers some exciting advantages.
The download itself is very quick because the program does not download the video portion, only the recognized audio files. In general, I am very satisfied with the time the program takes (even without Premium). On my MacBook Pro Retina, it took less than a minute for a video that was three minutes long. All in all, I can do it for that free YouTube to MP3 converter make a clear recommendation.
