YouTube is originally meant for videos, but that does not prevent it from embracing music. There are hundreds of music channels featuring great music videos, concerts and albums. However, enjoying songs on the YouTube app on a mobile phone isn't always a pleasant experience. Because there is one particularly egregious flaw — playback will stop if the free YouTube app is not at front and center of the screen. Its premium version does allow background playback, though it's still not possible to transfer the downloaded files to other playback devices.
With DVDFab YouTube to MP3, a handy YouTube MP3 converter software, that flaw can be fixed. It allows music fans to convert YouTube videos to MP3 tracks saved on computer HDDs, with just one click or two. This means, after transferring the converted MP3 audio files to your device, be it a smart phone, classic iPod music player, or even a smart watch, you can take your favorite YouTube songs everywhere. No longer need the YouTube app, and no longer need to stream, either.

To one or just a couple of videos, copying & pasting each URL to download and convert won't cost you too much of time. However, if it's an entire playlist which contains dozens of songs, copying & pasting the URL one by one to download won't be a pleasant experience at all. But don't worry! If the URL is recognized as a playlist after being analyzed, the Pro version of this YouTube MP3 converter software will give you the extra option to download and convert all the videos under that playlist at one go. In this way, you can get all the songs in a playlist with no sweat.

What's more, after being converted to MP3 files, the metadata information can be retained. This is to say, when playing back the MP3 files on compatible devices, all the information will be displayed.
The download of one video may cost you only a couple of minutes. But imagine an entire playlist that contains dozens of videos, or if you have several playlists to be downloaded, that would require quite a while. This is when and where the VIP Speed Download feature can help a lot. Once the VIP Speed is turned on, the download and conversion process can be 2X faster. This means, to download and convert an entire playlist won't keep you waiting too long.
By default, this YouTube to MP3 converter software can process one download thread at a time. This means, even you've pasted several URLs each containing one video or a playlist, only one task can be processed, with others waiting in the queue. But if don't want to wait, you can enable the Multi-Thread Download feature (available only to the Pro version) to process several download threads simultaneously, with an upper limit of 5 threads at most.
Step 1: Launch DVDFab 11 and navigate to the YouTube to MP3 tool under the Utility tab, and then click the "Paste URL" button near the top left corner and paste the copied URL into the software to analyze.
Step 2: If it's a URL containing more than one video, select the one(s) you want to download and convert.
