How to...

Search #

While you type in search input field, video and playlist results will be displayed bellow.

Download mp3 by pasting YouTube URL #

Copy YouTube URL and paste it in the search input field. The video will be displayed below. If URL contains information about playlist in which the video is, or it is a YouTube playlist URL, playlist download will be displayed, too.

Do Search-less & Paste-less Download #

You do not have to search or paste URL, at all.

While watching YouTube video in the browser:

  • go to the browser address bar
  • select youtube word in the URL domain (www.youtube.com/…)
  • replace it with ytbmp3 (to be www.ytbmp3.com/…)
  • hit the enter button on the keyboard

YTBmp3 site will detect the video, or playlist, that you were watching, and show the download information.

Download the whole Playlist #

You can download all mp3 files from a playlist in one zip file with one click on Download button. The playlist has to be publicly available. If some of the videos in it are private or unavailable, they will be skipped.

Time required to download a playlist is the same as the time required to download each mp3 from it successively.

Auto select Bitrate #

By default, YTBmp3 will choose the best audio source from YouTube to do the conversion and calculate the highest possible mp3 bitrate. Just leave the Auto bitrate selected bellow the Download button.

Usually, mp3 audio bitrate for YouTube videos is 160kbps.

Select a custom Bitrate #

If you prefer to convert mp3 with a specific bitrate, just select one, in the list below the Download button instead the Auto bitrate option. There is a wide range of options from 64kbps to 320kbps.

Be aware that the higher bitrate then the one available from YouTube will not result the more quality sound.

Trim the Length of audio #

Beside the bitrate option, below the Download button, there are two input fields which allow length trimming. The first input box is for start time and the second is for end time. While watching YouTube video, make note which part you want to convert and enter the start and end times before starting the download.

Time can be represented:

  • in seconds (10.5, 1, 0.33)
  • with colon separating hours, minutes and seconds (1:35.2, 16:4, 4:0)
  • with h, m and s suffixes (1h20m1.8s, 3m1s, 1m, 45.4s)

As you can see from the examples, a subsecond precision is possible, if that is important for you.

Short download URL #

URL shortener service at domain ytb.zone will give you a short URLs to YTBmp3 download pages. Also, you will find a link icon next to the Download buttons on this site, click on it and it will reveal a more convenient address for sharing. If you have a product of your creativity on YouTube and want to make your audience easier to download it in mp3 format, just provide that URL in your video’s description.
