At times, you can only hear some background songs in films or music videos, but you can't download them for offline listening. But now, with some video to MP3 converters, you can easily extract your favorite sound from a video and store it on your phone. Thus you can play the soundtrack whenever and wherever you want. If you're looking for ways to convert 4K YouTube videos to MP3, here are methods that can serve your purpose.

Note: It is not illegal to convert a video to audio, but it is illegal to download copyrighted music videos. So you'd better be careful to download such videos so that you won't embroil yourself in copyright problems.

Method 1. Convert 4K YouTube Videos to MP3 with EaseUS Video Downloader

Most converters in the market only support converting 4K videos that have been downloaded on your computer to MP3, but they don't provide the option to download 4K YouTube videos to MP3 directly. This leaves users with another problem: how to download 4K YouTube videos to MP3?

To solve this problem, you'll need this video to audio converter - EaseUS Video Downloader to help. With this program, you can directly download YouTube videos in MP4, MP3, and WAV formats. Besides, it has many other great features, such as:

  • Download 4K videos from YouTube and other 1000+ websites
  • Specify video/audio quality before downloading
  • Batch download videos using URLs
  • Download subtitles if there is one

To convert 4K YouTube videos:

Step 1. Launch the YouTube Video Downloader, copy the URL in the bar, and then click "Search."

Method 2. Convert Videos to MP3 with 4K Video to MP3

4K Video to MP3 is another desktop-based program that lets you turn one or multiple videos into audio tracks in MP3, M4A, or OGG format. It is easy to use. All you need to do is drag and drop the video files from your computer onto this program and click on "Download," then it will start to convert your videos and get the converted items stored on your computer. Next, you can transfer the converted music to your iPhone or enjoy it on your computer. 

But this program doesn't support converting videos using URLs, so you may need to download 4K YouTube videos with a  4K YouTube video downloader beforehand. 

If everything is ready, now you can follow these steps to convert videos to MP3.

Step 1. Download and install 4K Videos to MP3 on your computer.

Step 2. Drag and drop the videos to 4K Video to MP3. You can also click "File" > "Add Videos" to add files.

Method 3. Convert Videos to MP3 with EaseUS Video Editor

EaseUS Video Editor is another convenient option to turn a video into audio in mp4, mp3, avi, mpeg, wmv, mov, vob, flv, m4a, and more formats. As its name implies, it is actually a video editor that enables you to edit videos by trimming, cutting, splitting, rotating, etc. If your purpose of converting videos to MP3 is to insert audio into a video, EaseUS Video Editor can serve your purpose.

You can check a blog on how to convert videos to MP3 with EaseUS Video Editor in detail.

Method 4. Extract Audio from 4K YouTube Videos with Other Audio Converters 

Apart from the three audio converters introduced above, you can also use iTunes, the File app on iPhone, or other YouTube mp3 converters to do the conversion. Like the 4K Video to MP3 app and EaseUS Video Editor mentioned above, these tools are not equipped with a downloader. So you will need to download 4K YouTube videos with a video downloader. But note that this program only allows you to download videos whose default resolution is 4K. If the video is 1080P, 720P, or 480P, you can't change the resolution to 4K with this program.

The Bottom Line

That's all about how to convert 4K YouTube videos to MP3. Through reading this guide, we hope you've got all tips to convert videos. Among the four kinds of converters we introduced above, EaseUS Video Downloader is the only one that supports both downloading and converting 4K YouTube videos. Nevertheless, the other three converters only support converting videos. From this point, you can see that EaseUS Video Downloader is the best one worth trying.
