How to Download YouTube to MP3 in 128Kbps with EaseUS Video Downloader

Perhaps the web-based video downloader is a perfect option to download one or two videos, but not a good option to download lots of videos.

As for the video, you can download YouTube videos in 1080P or 720P or high-ultra resolutions like 8K and 4K. More importantly, it runs stably without any annoying ads or viruses.

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