Top 5 free YouTube to mp3 converters online

So it happens that YouTube has more music to stream than most other places. But you are very limited on how you can listen to Youtube’s music. You can’t really stream and listen to music outside of the Youtube app. Well, maybe you can, if someone made a huge page with many many embedded music videos on it, and you’d be pressing play on and on… It doesn’t sound like good times, does it?

If you are rich, like “pay-for-music-rich” — you can try spending some good cash on YouTube Premium or even its much more expensive sister — Youtube TV. But sometimes it’s just more comfortable and makes more sense to convert Youtube video to mp3 format and be done with it. This method helps when music you’re looking for cannot be found on “official” Youtube channels, talking of course about local talents and home-made footage. Where if not on Youtube?

However it is unfortunate, free online tools are usually ridden with spam, popups, redirects, push and other browser javascript tricks to make 1 thing possible — you seeing their ads. Some places may even try to get you to download and install, and of course eventually pay for their special software, that is one and only capable of doing your desired task properly, blah-blah..

Yet the good places still exist, so we’ve decided to compile the list of best youtube to mp3 converters online that don’t try to sell you software and are reasonably free of spammy adverts.
