Youtube Video Mp3 Downloader is an extremely easy-to-use utility that allows you to download any of the videos available on YouTube and to extract their audio stream. All you are required to do is to provide a valid YouTube URL – you can either type it yourself or simply copy it to your clipboard. If it is the soundtrack of the YouTube video that you are after, you will be allowed to save it as an MP3 or an AAC file.
Both the video downloading and the audio extraction processes follow the same steps. Unlike other similar tools, where you need to download the video first in order to be able to extract its soundtrack in a later process, this program can extract the audio of the selected YouTube video on the fly. The initial step is the same for both actions – the selection of a YouTube URL. The easiest way of doing this is by making use of your Windows clipboard. Just locate the desired video in YouTube and copy its URL to your clipboard – then it will appear in the program’s URL box automatically. The next (and last) step is to decide if you wish to download the full video file (in FLV) or just its soundtrack. If you choose the latter, you will be given the option to choose between MP3 and AAC as an output format, and the program will then “download” the audio stream only and will save it in the format of your choice.
Both processes are performed in the same fast and reliable way, resulting in good-quality, playable video and audio files. Regrettably, the program provides no support for batch processing, accepting but one URL at a time.
