Charlene updated on Aug 11, 2021 to iPhone Ringtone Making Tips | How-to Articles

YouTube is most famous for its video streaming service, but there are also many artists uploading their music here. Some of the music is really so great and resonates with me at that moment. I would like to keep them on my PC and listen to them again whenever I want to. But you know, YouTube doesn't offer the service to download music from YouTube videos for free. Today, I will recommend an amazing tool to download music from YouTube to computer.

Part 1. How to Download Music from YouTube to Computer 

Let's back to the beginning, what if you want to download music from YouTube in an audio file or exact audio from YouTube videos? The tool I recommend is EaseUS MobiMover and EaseUS Ringtone Editor. 

EaseUS MobiMover is a free iPhone data transfer tool that has a built-in video downloader and converter. With this tool, you can easily get music from YouTube videos by extracting the audio file and saving them in MP3, especially for those music videos. This is a fantastic way for you to get the music you like from the Internet. If you want to keep the music video directly to your computer, EaseUS MobiMover can download the video to your PC as well. 

Step 1. Launch EaseUS MobiMover, choose "Video Downloader" and select the location to save the videos.  If you want to download Vimeo videos to your iPhone/iPad, you need to connect an iOS device to your computer.

Step 2. Copy the URL of the Vimeo video you want to download, paste it into the bar in MobiMover, then tap "Download".

Now you can open the song you downloaded from a YouTube video on your PC with a media player and listen to it whenever you want to. You can even make some videos with this song. But keep in mind, don't make any commercial use for any downloaded content that is not copyright-free.

Need to Know Before We Get Started

YouTube gathers content from different sources. No matter the video/music you want to download is from a company or an individual, remember that there is an owner and a copyright holder for it unless it is clearly marked as copyright-free. You are not allowed to download the content for any commercial use nor spread it. Keep in mind you are only allowed to download copyright-free content or download it for personal use only. 


In this article, I have recommended you two tools EaseUS Ringtone Editor and EaseUS MobiMover to download music videos from YouTube to the computer, in the format of audio and video. You can choose one according to your actual demand. And be sure that you've understood the copyright issue I've talked about above when you use the downloaded music and videos.
