If you want to extract audio from YouTube very simply and don't mind a really basic interface then the Free YouTube to MP3 Convertor could be just the thing for you.
It is extremely easy to get started with, due in large part to basic interface mentioned above. You can customise it to meet your needs, but sticking with the original settings isn't too bad an idea either.
All you need to do is paste the URL of the YouTube page into the appropriate box and wait until the title of the video appears in the application. Once this happens you just choose the download option and let it work away. If you want to add some extra information then are fields for artist, track etc.
The download is of a reasonable speed and the finished audio files are of a consistently good quality. The downloaded audio files go straight to your my Documents folder with the name of the original video being the name of the new file too. You can set the quality of the MP3 file before downloading if you aren't happy with the standard option.
If you are going to be carrying out the conversion and download process a lot then getting the Free YouTube to MP3 Convertor to automatically populate the URL field form your clipboard will help you shave a bit of time off the overall process.
As you download the program the Ask.com toolbar will be added to your browser and the Ask.com site will become your home page. You will need to carry out the usual de-selection option as you are downloading if you want to avoid this happening.
As a simply laid out and easy to use video to audio convertor this does everything which anyone could ask of it. If you like flashier interfaces you might not be too impressed with the visual aspects of this program, but downloading it for free and giving it a try might be enough to make you change your mind about it.
