Other Types of YouTube MP4 to MP3 Converters

Desktop-based programs are reliable solutions to convert YouTube MP4 to MP3. But if you take convenience as your preference, they are not the best way out. Given that, here I'd like to show you the other two types of YouTube MP4 to MP3 converters that will help you get your needs met without software installation.

Online MP4 to MP3 Converters

Online tools have a growing popularity in recent years and they cover various fields. YouTube to MP3 converters is no exception. There are numerous online tools that allow you to convert YouTube to MP3 via a website. Although they have flaws like bothering ads and redirections, they are quite convenient to use indeed.

YouTube MP4 to MP3 Extensions

After you add an extension to your browser, it's even easier to convert YouTube videos to MP4 with it than using an online converter. It enables you to convert YouTube MP4 to MP3 directly without leaving the YouTube site. The disadvantage of such a tool is that it generally supports one site. Unlike the EaseUS Video Downloader introduced above that supports numerous sites, a browser extension generally works for much fewer sites.

If you prefer such tools, just search from the Internet, and then you will find a bunch of them.
