How to Convert YouTube Videos to WAV

Myra updated on Feb 14, 2023 | Home > Video & Audio Downloading

When it comes to converting YouTube videos to audio, most users will choose MP3 as the target format. But if you prefer an uncompressed format, WAV is a better choice.

Then, "How to convert a YouTube video to WAV?" you may ask. Actually, most YouTube to MP3 converters also allow you to convert a YouTube video to WAV, including desktop tools and online services.

Since your needs vary, you will prefer different ways to get the WAV you like. Given that, here I'd like to show you two easy and proven ways to convert YouTube videos to WAV files effortlessly.

How to Convert YouTube to WAV with a Desktop Video Downloader

I know using a desktop YouTube to WAV converter is not the most convenient choice. But considering its speed and reliability, a desktop program is the optimal choice for you. With the safe video downloader - EaseUS Video Downloader, you can complete video/audio download from various sites, including YouTube.

When you download a YouTube video to audio, you can set the target format as MP3 or WAV. Besides, you can choose the audio quality you prefer, including 128kbps, 256kbps, and 320kbps. If you also need to download YouTube videos, you will be able to choose a video format between MP4 and WebM or a video quality highest to 8K.

Other than YouTube, there are other video or audio sites or social networking sites that are also supported. Whether you want to download Facebook videos to a computer or save music from SoundCloud, EaseUS Video Downloader will come to your assistance.

Step 1. Copy the URL of the YouTube video to EaseUS Video Downloader and click "Search."

How to Download YouTube Videos to WAV with an Online Tool

It's no doubt that using an online YouTube to WAV converter is the most time-saving solution. Without any software installation, an online tool enables you to download a YouTube video to WAV via a website directly. 

But what difficult is to find a trustworthy website. As you may know, online YouTube to WAV converters are generally full of ads and redirections. What's worse, some of them don't work at all. Thus, you should be careful while choosing a workable website to apply.

Honestly, there is not so many YouTube to audio converters that support the WAV format. Some trials, I find the online YouTube to video/audio converter - lOADER.TO works. However, it will redirect you after you click the "Download" button. If you don't mind, follow the general steps below to convert a YouTube video to WAV.

Step 1. Copy the URL of the YouTube video and visit the online converter.

Step 2. Paste the link into the address bar and select "WAV" under the format section. Then click "Download" to continue.

Step 3. Wait for the file conversion to complete.

Step 4. Click "Download" to save the audio file to your computer. (Note: You will be redirected to another page after you click the button. Just close that page, and then go back to the site.)

The Bottom Line

Although both tools help to convert a YouTube video to WAV, when it comes to bulk conversion, the latter will fail. Thus, the desktop video/audio downloader from EaseUS not only works more stable but also performs better when you need to convert multiple videos to WAV files all at once. Specify your need and carry out the way best suited to your preference.
