I love music but I don’t want to download that music from torrent or strange website with malware. On top of that I want an itunes alternative. I recently discover that I can download mp3 songs from YouTube with this tool on this website.
In this post I want to share my tool that I use to fill my iPod with the latest song.
First question: is it legal? This is a serious question that I ask myself before I publish this post. My answer was yes and no. it is not legal for the person to upload the song and it is not legal for YouTube to host the song on their server.
However, if the person that uploads the song is the artist or an employee from the music record then the song is legal.
Now the second question I asked myself was is it legal to download it from YouTube.
My answer is yes. To come to this conclusion I just use the way YouTube works. In order for me to watch a video I need to download the content on my machine. Then my browser can convert this content into a video.
So this trick let you do the same thing that you normally do with YouTube (download content) but this time you take out the video part and keep forever the audio part.
Last time I check it is super fast. By fast I mean way less than 20 seconds on my broadband connection ( 7Mb/s ).
I choose this solution because it fast and deadly simple to use. It just works.
Follow those steps and you can build a fresh and update playlist in 5 minutes.
1) First locate your favorite song on youtube.
2) Go watch that video
3) Copy the url of the page
5) Paste the url in the box
6) Click the convert video button
7) Click the download link
That’s it you have your first song.
The cool advantage of this solution is to use safe and reliable websites. I don’t want to use torrents and shady websites with a gazillion pop ups.
I hope you enjoy my itunes alternative. If I have time I will try to improve that solution.
Until then you can always subscribe to this website to get the latest update.
