Part 2. 3 Online YouTube Video Downloaders 

Considering that not everyone wants to use third-party programs, we collect some online video & audio downloaders for you. The great thing about such downloaders is that it's time-consuming. No registration or installation is required. You can complete the whole download process on a website. 

Even so, online video & audio downloaders also have their weaknesses. One weak point is that it relies heavily on the internet connection. That means if you have a poor internet connection, you may take forever to download a video/audio. If you prefer such downloaders, here are some recommendations. 

Top 1. 320YTMp3

320YTMp3 is an online video downloading service that lets users download and convert videos from various social media networks. It supports MP4, MP3, M4A, and WEBM formats and offers many audio qualities, including 320Kbps, 256Kbps, 192Kbps, and more. The steps of using it are very simple. All you need is to copy and paste the URL of the video to the download box, choose the export format and quality, and then click download to grab your videos.

Top 2. Y2mate.com

Y2mate.com is another web-based video downloader that allows you to convert & download videos from YouTube, Facebook, Dailymotion, etc to MP3, MP4, M4V, 3GP, WMV, and more formats with the best quality. But every time you click on the "Download" button, you'll open a new web browser. Thus, you have to return to the previous page, which makes it inconvenient for users to save audio or videos. Another bad impression about this site is that it is an unauthorized site to convert videos. Therefore, you'd better be careful to use this tool.

Top 3. YT1s.com

YT1s.com is the last online video & audio downloader we recommend. It supports many different output formats (MP4, MP3, and 3GP) and video qualities ( up to 1080P). The best part of this video downloader is its clean interface, where don't exist annoying ads. It is very easy to use. To save a video from YouTube, you just need to copy the URL of the YouTube video and paste it on the YT1s search box, and then your video will be downloaded.

Final Words

These are all the YouTube audio downloaders for Windows we picked up for you. They are roughly divided into two categories - desktop-based or web-based.
