When it comes to digital video content, YouTube still reigns supreme (although other video sharing platforms are fighting to gain greater market share). With more and more video content being consumed via mobile devices, a question we often run into is “How can I download this?“. In this article we will cover the KeepVid android app that supports YouTube to mp3 downloads (as well as other features).
Lets start with the KeepVid app interface and run through the download process. Once you install KeepVid Android and launch the app, you are presented with a menu consisting of the various platforms from which you can download content. These platforms include YouTube, and also Instagram, Vimeo, Facebook and several others.
Since downloading YouTube videos to mp3 is the focus of this review, we will select YouTube from the menu. Then we just search for the video that we wish to download, and look for the download icon in the lower-right corner of the screen.
Now we can choose if we want to save audio-only in mp3 mode or if we want to download the whole video. We can also choose the quality of the video (this matters if you need to me mindful of space on your device).
That’s it! Once we’ve selected the format and quality of the download, the download will begin (with a progress bar tracking the download process).
Once the download is complete, the downloaded video will appear in the “Downloaded” tab of the KeepVid app. Now you can watch the video offline anytime, without a wifi connection and without using up your cellular data.
The app is very straightforward and easy to use due to its intuitive interface. There are no unnecessary bells and whistles and all the controls are where you would expect them to be.
Oh, and last but not least, KeepVid is a FREE youtube to mp4 online tool.
