We have seen many options in the past that allows to extract audio data from videos such as those that are downloaded from YouTube or from any other source. But most of them require multiple steps to do so. If you are only interested in downloading YouTube videos as mp3 files then you have a much cleaner option in the form of uTube2mp3 – a nice little extension that has been recently released for Firefox. This adds a little speaker button next to the Like, Add To, Share, Flag section on YouTube that you can click to download the audio data of the video as mp3 file! Everything is done in the background automatically. Actually this converts the highest quality video available into a 192kbps mp3 with the title of the YouTube video.
Underlying as I can see this uses the web service at http://www.youtubemp3s.com/ to achieve its magic. In other words, if you are not using Firefox or don’t want to install this extension, you can go directly to their website, put the YouTube video URL there and download the corresponding mp3 file on your computer. Of course, uTube2mp3 extension makes the experience much more seamless in case you are using the Firefox.
You can get the uTube2mp3 Firefox extension from here.
