Why Online Tools/Extensions Are Not Recommended

Some of you may know that there are also online YouTube music downloaders or browser extensions that can download YouTube music to your PC. That's true. But given the fact that online tools are generally not as stable and clean as desktop programs, they are not the best way for you to download Music from YouTube to your computer. As for browser extension, you will find that many of the browser addons that worked before don't work now.

Thus, using a YouTube audio downloader app is the optimal way for you to download YouTube music to your PC.

The Bottom Line

Don't try to download video/audio files that are under copyright protection and use files you download for commercial purposes. If you can't download video or audio files from YouTube, you first need to check whether the item is set as private content. If it is, don't try to get it anymore since there is no workable solution for you to get private video or audio files from the website.
