How to Download Music From YouTube Videos

By Andrew Smith

Many people already know how to download videos from websites such as MySpace and YouTube. However, what if you find a great video from a concert and you want to put that audio file on your mp3 player? You don't have to put the entire video file on your portable media player in order to hear this file. Here is how to download music from YouTube videos.

Step 1

Log onto YouTube.com.

Step 2

Search for your favorite music video, or any video that has audio you would like to download. When the video you wish to see comes up in your search results, click on it. The video should begin playing.

Step 3

Copy the URL of the video.

Step 4

In a new browser, call up the website videocodezone.com. (The full URL is listed in the Resources section.)

Step 5

Paste the URL of the YouTube video into the box labeled "From URL," which is found in the middle of the Video Codezone page.

Step 6

Select "MP3 (.mp3)" in the scroll box below the "From URL" box.

Step 7

Click the box labeled "Convert/Download" and your video will begin converting to mp3 format. This may take a few minutes depending on your connection speed and the size of the video.

Step 8

Right-click on the link for the newly created audio file, which is found underneath the "Video Conversion is Done Successfully!!!" heading. The file should begin with the word "videos" and end with ".mp3." Once you right-click on the link, you will probably want to rename the file to match the name of the song. Save the file to whichever folder you use to store your audio files and your download will be complete.
