A free online tool to convert YouTube videos into MP3 audio files

The YouTube to MP3 Converter is an easy-to-use, free website. It works on all popular web browsers, including Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Internet Explorer, Opera, and also Android mobile browsers.

Here’s how to use it:

First, grab the URL of the YouTube video you want the audio from. Then head to the site.

Paste the URL link of the YouTube video in the box at the top of the page, and click the “Go” button.

The options are 64kbps MP3, 128kbps MP3, 192kbps MP3, 256kbps MP3, and 320kbps MP3. It’s a general rule that the higher the bitrate (the number) is, the better quality the audio will be. However, MP3s with lower bitrates are generally smaller, so do consider this if space is an issue for you.

Once you’ve selected the quality, simply click the “Convert” button.

Wait until the conversion is completed. Then you’ll see three button options. The first of these is “Download,” which downloads the audio file to your computer’s default downloads folder.

The second option generates a unique QR code that you can scan with your phone to listen to your audio on the go.
