While diving into YouTube, you'll probably find a track you like and want to download it onto your MP3 player for offline listening. That's why you need some tips to help. And here we'd like to show you some practical options.

Warning: Activities involving infringement is against the rule of YouTube, and such a move may result in legal proceedings. Therefore, you'd better make sure the song you download is non-copyright before downloading.

Way 1. Put Music on MP3 Player from YouTube with EaseUS Video Downloader

One of the most straightforward ways to put music on an MP3 player from YouTube should be using EaseUS Video Downloader, a dedicated desktop audio and video downloader program for Windows and Mac. With it, you can download any track, playlist, or channel from YouTube in MP3 or WAV format, both are supported by most MP3 players.

Not only that, but it also supports converting videos into audio, which is great if you want to convert your favorite music video to your MP3 player. 

Before downloading any track or playlist, you can preset the output format, video/audio quality, and output path. Thus, you don't have to set the settings for each item before downloading. 

To download music from YouTube to the MP3 player:

Step 1. Open EaseUS Video Downloader, and then copy the URL of the YouTube video to this program and click "Search."

After downloading, you can connect your MP3 player to your computer through a USB cable. Then, locate your MP3 player, which is usually marked as a disc on My Computer. Next, select the downloaded songs and drag and drop them into the MP3 player. 

Way 2. Get a Song from YouTube to MP3 Player Using an Online Downloading Service

Another way to download a song to an MP3 player from YouTube is to use an online YouTube downloading service, which can be a website or an extension. There are both advantages and disadvantages of using such services. On the upside, such services are free and don't require installation. Moreover, you can open them on any web browser. 

However, most of them run unstably due to their server limitations. Besides, they provide limited format options, slow download speed, and annoying ads or popups. Even worse, most online downloading services don't support batch downloads, which makes it inconvenient to download many items simultaneously.

In summary, online downloading services are more suitable for users who need to download one or two song (s) now and then. If you need to save videos or songs more frequently, EaseUS Video Downloader is more advisable. 

In the following section, we'll show you an online downloader and a downloading extension. 


YT5s is an online YouTube downloading service that can help you grab your videos safely and quickly. It supports many formats, including MP3, 3GP, MP4, WMA, M4A, FLV, WEBM, and MO, most of which are compatible with MP3 players. It is free and easy to use. Here are the steps. 

Step 1. Open YouTube and find the video or music you wish to download, copy its URL.

Step 2. Open YT5s and paste the URL to the download box. Click "Start."

Step 3. Select MP4 or MP3 as your output format and click "Download."

Step 4. Wait for the conversion to complete. And then, plug in your MP3 player on the Windows PC, drag the downloaded MP3 files into your MP3 player from your computer.

YouTube MP3 Converter is a YouTube video downloader extension for Chrome. It supports downloading videos in MP3 at 96Kbps, 128Kbps, 256Kbps, and 320Kbps. Compared with online downloading services, such extensions are more convenient and easy to use. It doesn't redirect you to another website. All you need is to add it to your browser. What's more, it even allows you to trim the audio or video before downloading. Here's how it works.

Step 3. Then, click on the "Download MP3" button. Next, choose the bitrate you want and decide whether to trim your audio. After that, click on the "Download" button to finish.
