Most of us know the free online video storage service from Google - YouTube. There are hundreds of new websites becoming popular among us, since those sites are useful for us to customize the YouTube service as per our wish. For example, if we need to download the videos from YouTube in the desired file format, we have lot of free websites and software or applications. In the series, as a blogger and surfer, I personally visited some websites and used the services. Few days back, I wanted an online service that helps me to convert YouTube videos to MP3 audio files. I found some useful websites to finish my task. I would like to tell about my search history.

This is a quick, free converter which has very limited options, yet faster to convert and download. I suggest you to try this first. You can even install Video2Mp3 add-on or browser extension for your FireFox or Chrome browser.
