How to save MP3 from YouTube

It might sound complex but it’s actually super easy to do. Best of all, it’s free and doesn’t require downloading any bulky or expensive apps. Here’s how to get MP3 from YouTube videos...

  1. Paste a YouTube URL

    First off, go to YouTube and select the needed video clip. Copy its link by selecting the necessary option in the context menu.

    Select YouTube video you want to get MP3 from

    Navigate yourself over to Clideo’s MP3 Cutter. This tool simply works online from the safety of your web browser - any browser for a matter of fact - and from any device (PC, Mac, Android or iPhone). Well, so long as it’s connected to the Internet!

    On the tool’s home page, you’ll be welcomed by a big blue Choose File button. You can upload a physical clip from your device’s hard drive or cloud storage services Dropbox and Google Drive.

    Upload a YouTube video to extract MP3

    Tap the downwards-facing arrow on the right-hand side to reveal the dropdown menu and simply paste the URL of the YouTube video of choice into the box at the bottom. It will automatically begin processing and extracting the audio.

  2. Cut the MP3 if you want

    Next, you’ll be taken to the tool’s editor, where you will be able to select the beginning and ending. Move the green sliders in the player to make changes to its length.

    Cut the audio if needed and choose MP3 format

    If you want it to fade in and fade out your track, simply tick the appropriate boxes on the bottom right-hand side.

    Ensure that you have chosen MP3 from the format option on the bottom left. There are many other audio file formats to choose from if you so wish.

    Preview the track via the play/pause button in the centre and if you’re happy with the result, hit the blue Cut button on the bottom right. Your new audio track will begin processing and will be ready in a flash!

  3. Download your new track

    For the third and final stage, you’ll be given the option to download it back to your device or cloud storage account.

    Save the MP3 from YouTube to your device

    Before hitting the Download button, play the track to make sure it’s to your standard and if you’ve made a mistake - don’t fret - simply tap “Back to edit” and you’ll be taken right back to the editor where you can make more changes.
