Consider going for a run and wanting to pass the time by listening to a podcast or a playlist of your choice. Now, in order to watch videos on YouTube, you must have a quick, dependable, and consistent internet connection, which may not always be possible depending on where you work out.
Not to mention that you won’t be able to use the app in the background and will need to have your screen on at all times.
This means that whatever you do on your phone, such as checking the time, the weather, your steps, emails, texts, or phone calls, will inevitably cut off your video.
That makes it difficult to watch YouTube while engaging in another activity (like jogging, for instance), and it quickly depletes the power of your phone, leaving you with no music to listen to. The dread. The dread.
You can certainly get around that by subscribing to YouTube Premium, but that convenience will cost you $11.99 a month (the price of a regular subscription).
Instead, you may learn how to download YouTube videos as MP4 or MP3 files, store them on your device, and then view or listen to them whenever, whenever, and however you like, without having to worry about your internet connection or phone battery.
In our previous articles, we discussed the top YouTube to MP4 converters and the top YouTube to MP3 converters, and without any pretense of modesty, we suggested Subly as one of your finest options in each situation.
To be clear, this is not an attempt at self-promotion on our part. Okay, so maybe it is, but there’s a good reason for it!
Although there are undoubtedly hundreds of online converters accessible, many of them are cluttered with intrusive adverts that can cause your browser to crash (that has already happened to us!).
Even worse, there are converters made with spyware and adware that aim to control your device secretly.
Due to these factors, we advise using extra caution while converting YouTube videos to MP3 files. Subly is unquestionably one of the most dependable and secure alternatives out there.
We’ll walk you through the procedure of converting a YouTube video to an MP3 file in this article. Here we go, it’s extremely simple and won’t take long:
Check Your YouTube Link in Step 1
Check the video’s YouTube link first if you want to convert it. Remember that you can only convert a YouTube video to an MP3 if the video’s privacy settings are set to public.
You cannot convert a video that has been turned to private or that is not listed, regrettably. Your best option in that situation is to get in touch with the video’s owner and ask them to make it public.
Open the URL for the YouTube video you wish to convert.
Copy and paste the YouTube link into the section that says “Enter URL,” which includes TikTok, YouTube, Vimeo, and more.
Even while we are concentrating on YouTube videos in this article, you can convert videos from many other important platforms, including those we’ve already mentioned. Since not all films will be available on YouTube and you might have more luck discovering them on other platforms, that could prove to be quite helpful.
Once the URL has been pasted, select import. Depending on how long the video is, Subly might need a minute or two to process the clip.
Step 3: MP3 Conversion of Your YouTube Video
The converted file’s thumbnail will appear on the screen after the conversion is complete. The Subly editor will open when you click on it.
You may access the download menu by going to the left upper corner and clicking the blue button.
The MP3 audio format will already be chosen for you when you select the audio tab; simply click the download button.
Your device will then download an MP3 file containing the audio from your YouTube link.
The option to download the file directly to your Google Drive is also available. By avoiding the need to download the file to your desktop and then upload it to Google Drive for backup, you can save yourself some time.
There you have it. You may download your MP3 file in just three simple steps and listen to it whenever you like.
That’s not all, though. For example, Subly provides a snippet tool that you can use to alter or trim your files as well as a tool that creates accurate captions and subtitles in a variety of formats and translates them into an astounding array of languages.
Additionally, Subly can also provide you with a transcription of your MP3 file if you’d rather read it than listen to it. But let’s leave that conversation for later.
One more crucial point. You might be concerned about whether downloading and transcoding videos from YouTube and other websites will put you in legal limbo.
The truth is that downloading and converting videos for personal use is entirely lawful. However, you must have the legal right to do so if you intend to change, share, or otherwise profit from them.
In that scenario, we advise getting in touch with the video’s creator and requesting their consent before using it publicly.
Now that everything is ready and your MP3 files have been downloaded and converted, you can run with confidence.
Since you won’t require an internet connection, you can check your phone as frequently as you like without detracting from your listening experience. Win, win, win!
