Written by Christine Smith

So you may have just heard the best song in your life and you want to be able to have it as your own to jam to whenever you want or implement it into your next video project. You want to convert the video into an Mp3 but you don’t have the time to scroll through pages of technobabble on Google to figure out how to do it yourself. Thankfully, there are sites such as YoutubeMP3, ClipConverter , and Convert2mp3 that can do all the work for you. What is great about all three of the sites is that they are quick and easy to use. But keep in mind you are just getting the audio of the video and some artists do frown upon people taking their songs from youtube instead of pay sites like iTunes.

If you are looking for software that are free, then consider  Freemake Video Converter (Windows) and  Free Studio (Windows) if you have windows. Or you can also use Any Video Converter (Windows/Mac) which is compatible with both windows and mac.
