Keep yourself trustworthy connection is a piece of advice that we have all been listening from our elders all these years. And it makes sense also even in the music when you are looking forward to download the authentic links. Although to download music from YouTube is a practice that a number of users prefer. But downloading tunes from YouTube is a direct breach of YouTube’s policy. This may get users in the trouble. But the good news is there are a number of ways that users can opt for to download the music. 

One prominent way is to download music from Google’s YouTube music service. The service is likely to replace Google Play music someday. Thus the best way to get your tunes is opt for legitimate options.

Here is the step by step direction

Step 1: Copy video Url

It is the very first step and a straightforward method that can be accomplished in all browsers. Copying the Url doesn’t take much time and the relief is that we don’t need to download any new application for the same. It also means you can browse on Windows, Chromebook or even on the Mac. 

So head towards Youtube, get the address from the browser’s address bar in order to copy it to the clipboard just as shown in the image below.

Step 2: Reach to Y2Mate

Open Y2Mate homepage and you will find out a variety of online tools to ripping the audio from YouTube. I have chosen Y2Mate as it is a personal favorite. The website interface is intuitive and offers support to a variety of formats including MP3. However, it has a downside that it only entertains videos that are more than two hours in length in order to convert them into M4A format. 

Once the site is loaded, it is time for you to paste your YouTube Url in to “Search or paste link here” field. There is an alternative too. Users can type the keywords or the topic in the search box in case you don’t remember the Url. Once you have the video in the view section, the site will automatically load up along with a number of options for the conversion. For downloading the audio from YouTube you will have to click a link at a bottom that features, “YouTube to Mp3 Conversion.

Step 3: Choose the file type

One you will choose your preferred link, you will get a new page where the conversion will happen. MP3(128kbps) is the default option, although you can select from a variety of options that you will get from the drop-down menu. From there you can select different audio quality formats. Click the “download” that is green in color. 

You will soon get a pop-up that will show the progress (downloading the music from YouTube). Longer YouTube videos generally take longer time to download.

Step 4: Downloading The Audio

Once the popup -window shows you the download completed message, click the green “download.mp3” link. This will download the file in your preferred download folder from YouTube.

Desktop Alternative

There are a variety of online services that will help you to download as well as convert YouTube videos. But these are not legitimate so it’s recommended to opt for desktop applications that don’t have such problems. One of the most utilized desktop app is 4K Video Downloader. The tool is not only for downloading high-quality videos but for also ripping audio from the same. 

The steps required for downloading the desktop apps are all similar. You can opt for the steps as stated in the beginning.

The upshots

This is all on how you can download the music from YouTube. The steps are extremely easy and thus you can opt for them effortlessly. It is recommended to choose secured applications. You may find unauthentic links that may harm the data and your secured system connection. So, always opt for connections that are reliable and very much secured. 

Happy downloading.
