There is no denying that YouTube is an incredible resource for all and of particular value to musicians and music teachers! There is a wealth of videos of musical performances and interviews with artists etc.
So… I was really excited when I discovered the FREE” YouTube to MP3 Converter” from ManiacTools.com
As well as being FREE it takes no time at all to download and is SUPER simple to use!
You can add multiple YouTube videos just by copying the links and then download them all simultaneously. By default, downloads are saved to the My Music folder as an mp3, but you can change the output folder and also elect to download as a WAV file instead.
-Download the “Free YouTube to MP3 Converter” from the following site:
-After the download is complete the YouTube to MP3 icon will appear on your desktop.
-Copy the URL of the YouTube video you want to convert. For this example I’m choosing Adele’s ‘Set Fire to the Rain.’
-Click on the YouTube to MP3 desktop icon and the following box will appear:
-Paste the URL into the ‘Add a YouTube link’ area of the box (top left hand corner)
Click Download; when download and conversion is complete the following box will appear:
Click Open Folder and you will see the MP3 file in the My Music Folder (Adele’s “Set Fire to the Rain” in this example)
-Open iTunes and drag the MP3 file from My Music folder to a playlist in iTunes
-Now you can burn the track to a CD if/when you need to!
Go to: http://www.youtube-mp3.org/
This is the easiest online service for converting videos to mp3. You do not need an account; the only thing you need to do is copy a YouTube URL and paste it into the box on the YouTubemp3 page!
From there the mp3 is saved into your documents so you need to move it to your My Music folder.
