How to Put Music on an MP3 Player From YouTube
By Kirk Bennet
YouTube is a video sharing platform where users can upload their own creations. You can find thousands of copyright-free audio tracks that were uploaded by artists who want to share their work with everyone. Although converting the music videos to MP3 files and downloading them on your MP3 player is considered fair use, you should avoid copyrighted audio tracks at all costs. You can make copies for your own non-commercial, personal use, but you are not allowed to distribute the audio files or sell them.
Navigate to the music video that you want to put on your MP3 player, select the URL of the video in the address bar and press "Ctrl-C" to copy it to the clipboard.
Navigate to the YoutubeMP3pro website, click inside the "Enter YouTube Video URL..." field and press "Ctrl-V" to paste the video URL from the clipboard.
Click the "Convert to MP3" button to convert the video to an MP3 file and then click the "Download MP3" button to download the MP3 to your hard disk.
Navigate to the YouTube music video that you want to convert to an MP3, select the URL of the video in the address bar and press "Ctrl-C" to copy the URL to the clipboard.
Navigate to AudioThief, click once inside the field at the bottom of the page and press "Ctrl-V" to paste the video URL from the clipboard into the field.
Click the "Convert" button to convert the music video to MP3 format.
Click the "Click here to download your converted file" link and save the MP3 file on your hard drive.
