Besides the iTunes and Apple Music, YouTube is also a great place where music fans can find almost anything they are looking for, from tens of thousands of music channels. However, like the iTunes, the free version of the YouTube app has a major flaw — It does not allow background playback, nor does it allow users to transfer the downloaded files from one device to another.
Now, there is a solution to that unfriendliness — DVDFab YouTube to MP3 for Mac, a handy YouTube MP3 converter utility tool for macOS environment, allows users to convert YouTube videos to premium quality MP3 audio files, and then take them anywhere to enjoy anytime on any music playback devices, a smart phone, a classic iPod music player, or even a wearable device.
