If you're looking for the best YouTube MP3 downloader for Windows 10, then you're at the right place. YouTube Music Downloader is the app you need to download YouTube videos, convert them to MP3 and save them on your PC.

Is that legal? Absolutely!

YouTube offers a "Fair Use" license for its content. That basically means you can download and enjoy the content as long as you don't sell, reproduce, copy or use it commercially without acquiring permission from the copyright owner(s).

However, the way YouTube works, it's almost impossible to download its content. It doesn't grant browsers and most other programs the ability to download content directly from the site; of course, unless you have YouTube Music Downloader. This YouTube Downloader app lets you download videos and convert them to multiple file formats, including MP3.
