Nevertheless, there are assistive tools on the Internet that boast as the best YouTube to MP3 converter. They are said to be well capable of converting MP4 to MP3. So, we tried some reputable online YouTube video converters and made a simple conclusion for you.

Features of most online YouTube to MP3 converter:

1. Popup ads, some you can not even close by clicking the "x"
2. Not really as FREE as advertised
3. Do not support lengthy video conversion
4. Over 50% of YouTube URLs I tested failed to convert

Quite a few websites are attractive at the first impression when you clicked in. They present users usually a box for you to enter the YouTube URL, and the next option is to choose a file format. Some support both MP3 and MP4 file formats. I used 10 URLs on altogether five websites. The best result is that 5 URLs were successful on one website in the end, and the worst case is that none of the 10 were successfully converted to MP3.

Are there any alternative ways to guarantee a safe, limitless and trouble-free YouTube video to MP3 conversion?

In our opinion, the most guaranteed way to convert YouTube video to MP3 should go through two processes: First, download the YouTube video, and then convert the downloaded YouTube to MP3.

However, if we take the process into two parts, things become much easier. There are approachable as well as cost-free ways for either downloading any Youtube video or converting a local video to an audio file format.
