How to convert YouTube to MP3 – Accurately

We have to admit – there’s some excellent stuff out there on YouTube: engaging, informative, captivating, educational, and sometimes even alarming. There is also a wide range of videos offering guidance and tips on how to convert YouTube to mp3, which you can look at any time! But let’s save you time!

Why Convert YouTube To MP3?

The fact is, you won’t want to watch all of these, nor will you have the time. But with billions of hours of YouTube video to view, there is a good chance that the clips you are really interested in are too many and too long to always enjoy in video form. It makes sense, therefore, to strip the audio from these clips and listen and experience them at your leisure, perhaps as you are driving to work, out for a brisk walk for exercise, or as you drift away at night, listening to your MP3 player much like a free audiobook.

Yes, watching YouTube videos is great, but what if you just want to listen? You can have the recording from the video by converting the YouTube to mp3 and then storing it, maybe on your PC or on a flash stick, so that you can listen to it again or share it with others. Perhaps you even intend to have the recording or audio file transcribed so you have a ‘hard’ copy of the recording to read and share with others. Stripping the audio from a video can let you enjoy YouTube content anywhere!
