You’ll quickly come to know and love MP3Studio as your go-to cost-free software for storing YouTube videos and the audio ripped from them alike on any system. Want access to content found on YouTube without the tedium? Then you couldn’t have picked a better helper.
Setting the software up is a cakewalk, and we’d never pester you by form filling or surveys. All you get in this attractive YouTube downloader is a people-focused UI geared towards assisting anyone trying to download the video they’ve been pining over with a click or two. Only copying and pasting links is involved, and anyone can master that in seconds.
Our YouTube audio downloader differs from lesser alternatives since it includes ID3 tag management and creation. This MP3Studio feature is indispensable for creating well-organized and accessible playlists focusing on criteria you choose. All of the files you download don’t need to reside in the same place either – a few tweaks to the corresponding settings let you send them off to external drives and devices you’re likely to listen to them on the most.
There are more file types on offer than most users will care to explore. However, audiophiles and novices alike are sure to appreciate the total lack of throttling when downloading. Nothing but your ISP’s restrictions stand in the way now.
Updating the treasure trove of music with the latest smash hits suddenly got much more fun!
Pick a video you want to be downloaded.
You’ll first need to visit YouTube or a different video hosting service of your choice and find an interesting video. You then have to select the link in the address bar of your browser and copy it.
MP3Studio puts out videos at HD quality. 24, 30, and 60 frames per second are supported. You can also download and convert 360-degree videos! These are best viewed through virtual reality goggles like Google Cardboard.
Any video can be converted to 3GP, AVI, MP4, or WebM. You can have MP3Studio convert the video as it’s being downloaded or save it to a disk drive and do so later with a feature that converts local files.
You can download songs off of YouTube in MP3 format with a maximum native bitrate of 128Kbps. MP3Studio also supports converting YouTube songs to MP3s with a bit rate of 320Kbps or lower. That’s great news for audiophiles everywhere!
Our downloader supports AAC and Vorbis as well. AAC or Advanced Audio Coding is a codec that offers the same bitrate as MP3 but offers better sound quality. Vorbis surpasses MP3 in technical sophistication and is available at 192Kbps.
Want to know more about what format to use when downloading audio from YouTube? Your ears ought to get a kick out of it!
Great question! There are a few compelling reasons for this. Web-based downloaders have limited resources at their disposal and are often accessed by many people at once. The owners have to make the cost up somehow, so they limit download speeds or available output quality. Some resort to even more aggressive or questionable ways of monetizing the site.
Your computer takes care of the conversions, so we only need a fraction of the resources to provide it.
Here’s a short summary of why you should choose MP3Studio over sites like YTMP3, KeepVid, YooDownload, or SaveMedia:
Downloading a video you don’t intend to distribute further is legal. “Fair Use” also makes downloading some videos legal for commercial means, as long as you comply with its guidelines. Using something other than the download button YouTube provides can be seen as a breach of its ToS. However, we’ve yet to hear of someone actually getting into trouble because of this.
We strongly believe that downloading a video from a site that shares them to be consumed at a later time or in offline mode serves the same purpose as timeshifting, so it should fall under fair use. The case of Betamax already sets a precedent. Downloading videos that claim no copyright is therefore legal.
If a video doesn’t hold the Creative Commons license, we advise that you ask its creator for permission first before downloading.
