YouTube is a great platform for video sharing and viewing and we have talked endlessly on our other pages about this. With the platform coupling information and entertainment needs of users from across the globe, it is the most sought out video streaming platform.
Despite the endless list of benefits, the platform does have its limitations. For instance, YouTube videos do not play in the background. The feature though available in the premium version of YouTube, cannot be accessed through the free membership. Free users cannot play audio files with the phone screen locked.
So, the only alternative to listening to your favorite playlists and videos is to bring them live, offline, on your laptop, cell phone, and other mobile devices.
But then there’s another catch there! YouTube natively does not allow downloading MP3 versions of video files. Then, what next?
Simple! You need software to extract the MP3 files from YouTube. The YeetDL YouTube Downloader is one such software that not only downloads the YouTube files but also converts them into MP3 format in a matter of seconds.
Here’s how you can do it!
