How many times have you come across that YouTube video of your favorite song, but when you go to play it, it says this video has been removed? Downloading music from YouTube can be frustrating because it doesn’t always work, and when it does, the quality isn’t always good enough to make the download worth your time. However, with the proper strategy and setup, you can get your own copy of that music video or even the entire album—all in high-quality MP3 format. Here’s how to download music from YouTube in four easy steps.
Step 1: Go to YouTube
The first step is to go to YouTube and find the song or artist you want to download. You can do this by searching for the song or artist in the search bar, or by browsing through the different genres of music. After finding the song or artist you want, click on the video itself to be taken to a page that shows information about it such as how many views it has received and which album it belongs to.
Click on Share next to the video title. On the resulting page, there will be options for embedding code and direct links. Select Embed Code at the top of the list and copy it so that you have access to the code when you’re ready to embed it into your blog post. Go back to your blog and paste the copied code where you would like it to appear (generally near the end of the post). Save the changes to publish them.
Now anyone who goes to your site should see an embedded video player with controls at one side and a box below that says Playlist. Playlist is where you will be able to add songs as they are downloaded by clicking on Add To Playlist for each individual song
After selecting all of the songs, videos, and other content from YouTube that you want uploaded onto your site, simply click Save Changes under Preview Your Layout. Choose the name for your playlist and then click Upload. All of the content that you selected will now be available to play on your site! It’s really simple to make use of.
If you’re not sure what content to include, check out our guide for suggestions: How to Create Playlists on YouTube. You can also set up automatic downloads using RSS feeds, although this might not work with newer releases that haven’t been released yet! In these cases, it might be better to wait until the release date and then start downloading them manually. One thing to note is that YouTube does place restrictions on the amount of data that can be saved per day, but most people don’t come close to hitting their limit.
Most likely you’ll only need 20-50 MB per day depending on how much video content you share or create. That said, if you notice that your bandwidth usage is high even after making some adjustments (like increasing the quality settings), this could mean something else is going wrong with your internet connection and you’ll need professional help.
Step 2: Add &fmt=18 (without quotes) at the end of the URL
Did you know that you can improve the audio quality of your YouTube videos by adding a simple code to the end of the URL? &fmt=18 (without quotes) will do the trick! Simply add it to the end of the URL and hit enter. You should see a difference in audio quality immediately.
We have found this works with most browsers, but some users may need to use an extension like Tube Mute for Firefox or Video Assist for Chrome. If all else fails, simply reload the page with &fmt=18 appended at the end of the URL. The sound quality should be improved right away, depending on your browser. There are also other codes that can be used to change the video resolution and playback speed.
Step 3: Click on Download Mp3 next to the video you want
You can find the download button under the video player. Once you click on it, a pop-up window will appear asking you where you want to save the file. Choose your desired location, and click Save. The file will begin downloading immediately. Depending on your internet connection, this process could take a few seconds or a few minutes. When the download is complete, you’ll be able to listen to your favorite songs whenever you want.
Step 4: Choose a format, quality and destination
After you hit Download, a pop-up window will appear asking you to choose a format for your download. For the best quality, select Original. If you’re short on storage space, go for one of the lower quality options. Once you’ve made your selection, hit Download again and wait for the file to save to your chosen destination. That’s it! You can now enjoy your favorite tunes offline.
No need to worry about data usage or signal interruptions when you don’t have service anymore. In this day and age, we all should have a back up plan just in case something goes wrong with our devices.
In conclusion, using these four easy steps will allow you to download music from YouTube without any issues at all. So be sure to keep this blog post handy so that you can come back and refer to it whenever necessary!
