We continue our quest for speed…
We started off our journey with speeding up our video watching experiences: first by introducing video download options for all those videos you like to watch over and over, and second by introducing a video acceleration solution for online videos and live streaming videos. This time let’s talk about ways to convert videos to MP3 music files.
Videos have become an indispensable part of our daily lives. I mean, try to count the number of online videos you watch a day? Or better, count the days you DON’T watch videos online? Not many, right? So it is only natural that we find ourselves humming the music of those videos while we go on with our daily tasks. Even in this world of mobile-everything, we can’t always afford the time and money needed to play the music of online videos while we jog, drive, ride the train, eat, sleep, work and so on. What we need is a way to convert those videos to MP3 files so we can just play them whenever we want on our iPhone, iPod or any other music player. That way, we can just click “play” when we want to listen to the music – No need to connect to the internet, no need to search for the video each time, no need to experience a pause each time the video gets stuck, no need to rely on the quality of the video streaming. We can just listen to the music anytime, no matter where we are.
So here are three ways in which you can easily convert any online video to MP3:
- Convert Videos to MP3 with Download Accelerator Plus (DAP)
- Convert Videos to MP3 directly from YouTube using DAP’s Convert Video button
- Convert Videos to MP3 with Speedbit Video Downloader and Converter
For the first two options, you need to install DAP.
For the third option, you will need Speedbit Video Downloader and Converter.
All three options offer fast download and conversion speed, so you get your music fast and simple.
Converting Videos to MP3 with DAP
It’s as easy as downloading any file with DAP, but there is a long way and a short way to do it. The long way takes two clicks. The short way takes one click, once you have the Download MP3 add-on installed. For both ways, you should make sure you are using DAP 10. Let’s start with the short way for all you people who will be using this option often. On our quest for real speed, every extra click matters – right?
The One-Click Way: DAP’s Download MP3 Add-on
The short way requires the Download MP3 add-on, but once you install it, all you have to do is click the Download MP3 button on DAP’s main window and DAP will do all the work for you. DAP will even add the MP3 file to your iTunes library. Installing the add-on is no big deal either. Just click the Get Add-ons button at the top of DAP’s main window and then click the Install button next to Download MP3. Click Restart DAP to complete the add-on installation.
The Two-Click Way: DAP’s Convert Video Feature
The “long” way does the same in two steps: First you download the video by clicking the Download Video button on DAP’s main window. Second, you convert the downloaded video by right-clicking on the video name, choosing Convert and selecting MP3. You can also choose other video formats from the list (MP4, MOV, AVI, FLV, WMV, MKV, 3GP, MPG, WEBM, M2TS, AAC, WAV, WMA, OGG).
Converting Videos to MP3 straight from YouTube
Once you have Download Accelerator Plus (DAP) 10 installed, you will see the DAP Download and Convert buttons below any video on YouTube. Just click the Convert to button and select MP3 or MP4 to instantly download the video as an MP3/MP4 file.
Convert Videos to MP3 with Speedbit Video Downloader and Converter
If you wish to be able to download and convert videos to MP3 music files from ANY video site directly from your browser, this option is for you. Once you install Speedbit Video Downloader and Converter, you will see a Download Video icon flashing on your browser every time you play an online video. Just click the flashing icon to download the video. Once downloaded, click the Convert button that appears on the Download Complete window and select MP3 from the list. The video is instantly converted to MP3.
So there you have it – three simple ways to turn your favorite videos to MP3 music files in no time. Did I mention they are all absolutely FREE? They are! And they bring us another step ahead in making SPEED an everyday reality.
