Default How to download music from YouTube

Here's how to download music from YouTube, by converting video to audio

It's useful to know how to download music from YouTube, even though the service is primarily intended for streaming videos. YouTube itself recognizes this, having launched YouTube Music in 2018; this service lets paid subscribers download songs to their mobile devices.

By converting YouTube videos into MP3 format, you can download their audio tracks to listen to offline, without the accompanying visuals — and adverts. Just be aware that there are specific rules around what you can download without violating YouTube's Terms of Service, so be sure to read our section below for more on that.

5 Reasons You Should Pay For YouTube Premium
Other than paying for YouTube Music, there isn't an official way to download music from YouTube, and Google has been clamping down on so-called "stream rippers" that are designed to extract and save music from YouTube videos.

Fortunately, there are a couple of workarounds for downloading music from YouTube, though we should stress that these shouldn't be used for making copies of copyrighted audio content (again, see section below).

Here's how to save copyright-free music from YouTube to listen to and reuse offline, both on your desktop computer and your mobile device.

Is it legal to download music from YouTube?
As with downloading videos, YouTube's Terms of Service state that you’re not allowed to download any audio content, unless “specifically permitted by the Service,” or you have prior written permission from YouTube or the respective rights holder.

You can download and play ad-free songs and playlists through the YouTube Music app for Android and iOS, but only if you subscribe to YouTube Music Premium for $9.99 a month. To prevent piracy and copyright infringement, this option isn’t offered on the YouTube Music website or in the free version of the service.

Although YouTube features millions of tracks, by every artist you can think of, most of which have been uploaded by its users rather than record companies, it also offers lots of royalty- and copyright-free content, and songs covered by a Creative Commons license.

Downloading audio from these videos won't violate the site's terms of service or break the law, which means you can use their music in your own creative projects. Note, however, that YouTube's own Audio Library of no-copyright music states that: "You can NOT use third-party software to download the video/track, always use our download links."

Another reason that you might want to know how to download music from YouTube is to access music that you created and uploaded to YouTube previously, for instance if you no longer have access to the original file. Obviously in that case one of the below methods will be fine to use, without the risk of you violating any terms or breaking the law.

With the above caveats in mind, here's how to download music from YouTube.

How to download music from YouTube on desktop
Although there are lots of websites that let you convert YouTube videos to MP3 format, many either don’t work or contain dubious ads and malware-infected links.

For your safety and convenience, we recommend using the reliable free desktop program 4K YouTube to MP3, which extracts the audio from YouTube videos in one click. Here’s how to use it.

1. Visit the 4K Download website, click Download at the top of the page, and choose “4K YouTube to MP3.” Click the Download button next to the version of the program you want to install: be it Windows (32-bit or 64-bit), macOS, or Ubuntu.

2. Once 4K YouTube to MP3 has downloaded, run the installer to launch the Setup Wizard and install the program on your computer. Check the box to “Launch 4K YouTube to MP3,” then click the Finish button

3. When the program opens, it will show as “Not Activated,” but don’t worry about this unless you want to buy a license to unlock premium features. This costs $15, but the free version of 4K YouTube to MP3 lets you download up to 30 audio tracks per day (though only one at a time,) which should be enough for most people.

If you need unlimited downloads, and want to download up to three tracks simultaneously, click the Tools menu, choose “Manage License,” and then click “Get License.”

4. Either way, next find a copyright-free video on YouTube and copy its URL.

You can either do this by copying the link from your browser’s address bar or by clicking the Share button below the video and selecting “Copy” next to the URL.

Thanks for the information. I have been looking for youtube mp3 best quality converter for a long time to convert music from youtube video to mp3. It is also important for me that there is a friendly interface that will be much easier to use than most programs have. The converter should convert videos to various file formats, including MP4, MP3, AVI, AAC, M4A, WAV, and AIFF. Any ideas?
