My brother, Albert, is a HUGE music and movie aficionado, which makes sense if he’s a dj and an actor. Alb’s Twitter
He gave me music magic knowledge – Youtube can be your iTunes library.
Answer: http://www.video2mp3.net/ - Video2mp3 Media Converter
- Go to Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/
- Find a video (song) that you want for your music library. (A friend told me today that “Skin” by Rihanna is incredibly dirty, so naturally I want to check it out.
- Once you find the video/song you like, copy the URL. You’ll find the URL in the upper left corner of your web browser, like shown in the image below. (I copied the URL for “Skin” - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6kjaagQcYkc)
- Go to the media convert website: http://www.video2mp3.net/
- Scroll down until you see this:
- Paste the video URL where it says, “Enter the URL of the video you want to convert to MP3.
- Select “High Quality”.
- Click “Convert”.
- Scroll down, and you’ll see your song loading.
- When it’s done downloading, you’ll briefly see this image:
- If you can click on it quickly, great! You’re almost done! If you don’t click on it right away, you’ll be directed to a video ad page, and you’ll see an 8 second countdown in the upper right corner of the screen. Once the 8 seconds are up, a link will appear where the countdown was, saying, “Continue to your download.” Click on it, and it will direct you to a new page, and back to this image:
- Click on the link, and you’ll be directed to the final page:
- Click on “Download MP3″.
- Your MP3 song will begin to download.
- If you have a Mac (I have a Mac laptop), then your download will appear in the bottom left of your browser, and will look like this:
- Click on the arrow, and click “Open”, your song will open into your default music player, mine is iTunes.
- If you don’t have a newer Mac, then find your downloads however you find them, and open it up, and your new song will start playing in your music library.
Listen to my new song, Skin by Rihanna: skin-rihanna
