A YouTube to MP3 converter is an application that converts a YouTube video into MP3 audio format. To accomplish this conversion, users copy the URL of the video and paste it into the application.
As of 2015, some of these applications are available online free of charge, but many such applications charge a fee for downloading. One such free application is the "Free YouTube to MP3 converter," which is available on the DVDVideoSoft website. Users should first download this application, and then they can copy and paste as many video URLs as they desire. After selecting MP3 as their desired output format, users receive the converted files after a few minutes or several minutes depending on Internet speed.
