How to Convert YouTube Videos to MP3

Last Updated: October 11, 2021

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!

Questions regarding YouTube to MP3 Conversion

How is YeetDL better than an online MP3 converter tool?

While online downloaders have their advantages like their ability to download without existing on the local system, YeetDL has its own merits.

For one, YeetDL takes up a very small space on your local system which makes it comparable to an online tool that takes up no space at all.

Further, YeetDL is much faster than an online tool as it doesn’t process data on a remote server. Also, the offline tool carries a much reduced, or zero risk of malware attack; something that its online counterparts cannot guarantee.

What is the maximum number of files that I can convert to MP3 on YeetDL?

As many as you like!

You can download and convert any number of YouTube files to MP3. There is no limit to how many videos can be converted in a day, simply because we believe you should enjoy your content sans conditions.

Does YeetDL also convert offline files into MP3?

No. YeetDL is a Youtube Downloader and conversion tool that enables YouTube video content to be stored offline in MP3 format.

However, it is not an MP3 converter that works on offline files.

Are there different bitrates available for the final MP3 file output?

Yes. Within the MP3 file format offered in the software, two resolutions, 128 kbps, and 192 kbps are available.

While 128kbps is the lowest acceptable level of sound quality, the higher version, 196 kbps offers a better balance between sound quality and convenience.

Is it legal to download YouTube videos as MP3?

Yes. The legality of the video conversion to MP3 stems from:

  • The downloaded file will not be used for commercial purposes.
  • The download tool is 100% safe against phishing and malware attacks.

As we mentioned in our other pages, YeetDL has been launched after rigorous testing to provide a smooth download experience, minus the virus threats. So, when you convert your video files to MP3 on the downloader, all you get is your favorite content in audio format and nothing else.

And all of this is definitely legal.
