    hello everyone,

    I was wondering if it is illegal to get a Youtube video and convert it to mp3 for personal use. I'd really like to use this to make getting songs legal, but I wouldn't if it is illegal. I have heard both ways on this one and I'd like to clarify if it is legal. Here are my points on it

    -i am using these songs for PERSONAL use.
    -these videos are not sponsored they are just uploaded by random people
    -Youtube.com is a public website
    -i am not necessarily downloading the song officialy, i am just listening to what some other person posted.
    -There are billions of non-song youtube videos that people can convert.

    Ok thanks please post your opinion.

    I'm pretty sure it's illegal, but if it's personal use, I don't know. MxTube downloads YouTube videos and if it was illegal I'm pretty sure people wouldn't use it. It might just be illegal for copyright infrigement/unauthed redistribution

    too bad youtube has crap quality, you will not get anything good by converting videos to MP3 lol. I do use it for some acoustic songs that aren't available for download or purchase though.

    *******s are retarded.

    Of course, feel free to download a 20 MB file in 4 hours.


    Just search google, since I would imagine if someone had it to make the video, they had to get it from somewhere. Of course you might actually have to PAY for it.

    You must have the worst connection in the world cause if you use the right *******s that have a good ratio of seeders to leechers than you're good. I've downloaded 4.5GB in about 10 hours before. thats not that bad......

    The quality of downloading videos into mp3 are HORRIBLE, unless u dont mind crappy 32 or 64kbs..... also that method u explained is illegal and retarded.

    Best way is buying the actual CD so u have the actual thing and it looks cool.

    *******s are also the really awesome metohd if u know what ur downloading and if u are good with mp3/music related things

    iTunes is starting to be really good as they removed DRM and now almost everything is 256kbs

    Do not do youtube or limewire they suck
