Sometimes you may have watched a touching music movie online and want to download and play only the music on your MP3 player so that you can listen to it when you hang out. Or you just have found a new artist, some great cooking tutorials or educational videos but you don’t have time to view them. If it’s the case, it’s recommended that you extract only the audio for listening to get the important info. You’re lucky as there are hundreds of programs that enable you to convert URL to MP3 directly without having to download the video first and then convert the video to MP3. Here are some URL to MP3 converters that you can try to copy online video URL to MP3 instantly.
URL to MP3 Converter Online App
This is a great option for those who don’t like to install programs to their computer or have to sign up to then receive constant emails. Web apps, such as our site’s video downloader, are easy to use and will have you listening to the video of choice in next to no time.
The process is simple; copy the URL of your chosen video, paste it into the site and click the “Download” button. A number of different media formats will be available once the web app has recognised your video meaning that you can save it as an MP3, AAC, and more. Right click on the “Download” icon then click “Save Link As” and you will have your file after a short download.
You may require a quick setup the very first time using this web app but it will be easily accessible, with no subscription, Java, or installation, thereafter.
Browser Extension Downloader
If you are likely to want to download videos often, an extension for your web browser is also a good option. Extensions, like Youtube to MP3, requires a short download but once added to your web browser, can make it easy to download any video at will. A small ‘play’ button will be added to the address bar and when clicked, the video will be downloaded as an audio file.
Real Player Video Downloader
This is yet another good option and requires a simple installation. Once this video downloader software is installed, you will be able to add videos that are already held on your computer to their library. Open the app, click on the dropdown menu next to the RealPlayer logo, click "File" and then finally, "Scan Disk for Media". The app will search your device for videos and you will then have the option to add them to the RealPlayer library.
Once in the library, you will see a “Convert To” button in the left panel which will start the process of converting your local videos to MP3. You will then be able to drag and drop any videos from the library that you want to convert to an audio file. If you feel confident, you can adjust the settings to however you prefer and then go ahead and click on the big green “Start” button. Your work is done after this and all that remains is to wait for the file to complete its conversion.
Record Audio on iPhone
There’re very few URL to MP3 Converter on iPhone, but if you like the music of a web video, you can go another way by recording the audio directly as MP3. In this way, you can enjoy the music without having to convert video to MP3 via URL. Voice Recorder is a prevalent free app on Apple Store, allowing people to record the sound on their mobiles. It has classic interface like a tape on which you will find control options (play, store, record and save as) just like using an old walkman. There’re also options to backup recordings, share audio to network, trim recorded audio, etc. You can get accustomed to this tool and like using it shortly.
