Extracting the audio of your favorite YouTube videos and save it as an MP3, WAV, FLAC, Ogg, AAC, or M4A file requires a tool like Free YouTube to Mp3 Converter, which downloads both individual videos and full YouTube playlists and saves their audio stream in the format and quality of your choice in the most straightforward and effective way possible.

Both a download manager and an audio extractor, this free utility combines the best of both worlds into a single tool.
Note, however, that this is not a video downloader – it uses the original YouTube video as raw material from which the original soundtrack is extracted and (if so desired) converted using various lossy and lossless codecs. As soon as you add a YouTube URL to the conversion list – either using the drag-and-drop method or by pasting it from the clipboard, you are presented with a thumbnail view of one of its frames and full information about the best-quality video and audio streams available. Free YouTube to Mp3 Converter supports YouTube playlists, too. Thus, you will be able to download and convert an entire set of tracks without having to copy and paste all the individual URLs. You can select any of the audio streams associated to the various video qualities available for the original file in YouTube.

That is the audio file that will be used as source during the conversion process. You can leave it as it is, or re-encode it using various MP3 profiles (from Lame Insane quality to audio-book quality) or any of the “original quality” presets provided for FLAC, M4A, AAC, WAV, and Ogg audio. Converting any audio stream coming from a YouTube video into a FLAC or WAV uncompressed audio file won’t make it lossless or sound better, but it will help you, for instance, to burn it to CD straight away.

Free YouTube to Mp3 Converter is both simple and highly efficient – certainly, a free tool worth trying.

    No matter where I try to get the latest file and download it, MalwareBytes always finds ad-ware, Open Candy etc. So, I have not updated to the latest version.

    I'm experiencing some problems with the latest version. The size of the downloaded files is bigger then in the older version. A song of 4 minutes will need around 4 MB to store (downloading on 240p) but it is 9 MB, which is quite big for such a length.
