Method 1 Download YouTube Video to MP3 with Online Video Downloader

There are various kinds of video downloading sites for download YouTube MP3 iPhone appearing after typing the related keywords on Google search engine, for example, Flvto YouTube to MP3 Downloader.  They are totally free and simple and it just requires several clicks to download a video. Here, I am going to illustrate how to download YouTube videos to MP3 with the example of Flvto step by step.

Step 1

Go to the site of Flvto, copy and paste the link of the YouTube video you want to download to the box of “Enter the link of the media”.

Step 2

Select MP3 as the output format and then click on CONVERT TO to start the conversion process. In several minutes the video conversion will be finished. Then, you can click on Download. But here comes the problem. The downloading process is as slow as a snail! I have to wait at least 40 minutes before a 4-minute video download gets completed which is definitely unacceptable. Um…I must confess I also noticed a sexy pop-up ad with a link to an Asian adult movie site when I used Flvto for the first time.


Notice: Sometimes, the downloading process is as slow as a snail! I have to wait at least 40 minutes before a 4-minute video download gets completed which is definitely intolerable compared to third-party video downloading software that’s faster and safer.

Step 3 

Install iPhone transfer software like IOTransfer, a versatile and practical iPhone data transfer/backup program which can help you move your iPhone files including photos, videos, music, and contacts across different iDevices and PC.

Go to its"MANAGE" tag and upload the previously converted MP3 file and then transfer it to your iPhone or iPad.

Now you see how inconvenient and annoying those online downloading sites are. Their downloading speed dramatically relies on your network condition and is filled with pop-up ads which may contain dangerous virus or Trojans. The worse is that their servers get frequently crashed due to ineffective maintenance – VideoGrabby is a typical example.

Up to now, I think you must be wondering whether there is a faster and safer method to download online videos. The answer is yes!
