Not only can it capture any activity from your screen, but it also functions as a fast YouTube audio converter. With this easy-to-use downloader, you’ll need only a couple of minutes to make an MP3 file of your favorite music videos from YouTube. Want to know how? Follow these simple instructions.
Download the appropriate version of the program – for Windows or Mac – and go through the four easy steps outlined below!
1. Install Screen Capture
Download the software using the appropriate link above, open the executable file, and follow the on-screen instructions.
2. Check the Recording Parameters
To convert YouTube to MP3, open YouTube and cue up the desired movie – it doesn't matter if it’s a short clip or a full-length movie over 2 hours, the program has no problem recording it. Run Screen Capture and select Record screen in the program launch window. Hover the cursor over the browser window with the desired clip and left-click on it to define the capture area. Now check that the System Audio button is green – this ensures that the sound from your movie is recorded. Then, make sure that the Microphone icon is deactivated, so no background noise gets recorded.
3. Capture the YouTube video
To start capturing, click REC. The recording process will start after a five-second countdown, so get ready to play your YouTube clip. Click Stop to stop the recording once the video is over. You can also control the process with hotkeys: Windows users can click F9 to pause the recording and F10 to stop; if you're a Mac user, click ⌥ ⌘ 1 and ⌥ ⌘ 2 respectively.
4. Save the Music Video in MP3
The recorded clip will open in a preview window. Here, you can trim it, if there are any unnecessary pieces of footage that should be removed. Use the scissors icon to split the clip, select the part you want to cut out with a left click, and hit the trash can icon to remove it. To save any changes and convert the YouTube video to MP3, click Save As.
Choose the default MP3 setting on the quick access panel. That’s how easy it is – just click the Save button to export your recording in MP3.
Congratulations, now you know how to download your favorite songs using our YouTube to MP3 converter. YouTube is now all yours to explore!
