There are many ways of downloading YouTube videos, but what if you want to convert YouTube videos to audio and download only the audio file. Many service have started giving you this functionality and in this article, I will list the best of them.
1. YouTube mp3 – YouTube To MP3 Converter
This is the fastest way to convert any YouTube video to an audio file. Just paste the YouTube URL in the input box and click the “Convert Video” button. Within seconds, you will get a link to download the audio from the converted YouTube file.
You don’t need any software/extension to convert YouTube videos, everything is done by the application. All you need is a URL to the YouTube video and a working internet connection.
The website guarantees you a bitrate of 128 kBit/s or more and needs around 3 to 4 minutes (some seconds in reality) to convert the video.
