Good one, but ... Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Actually a pretty good one, used by me very frequently, and the best I've tried so far. But I'm confused as my podcasts have become very big in MB in recent times. Mp3 files are as big as videos might be, so there seems to be something wrong with it, unfortunately. Hope this will be fixed with the next release?

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I was surprised at how many types of sites and players it can rip from, and it generally downloads quickly. However, for certain types of players it is very slow and sometimes the link won't show up until you refresh several times, which is why I didn't give it 5 stars. Overall very useful and no serious problems.

Easy to use.

PS I know I've chosen 320 kbps, but did you know that the size of each downloaded file is enourmous!? 10–15 MB each!

Fixed Part of the problem on the best MP3 converter Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Prior to this problem, this used to be the best MP3 youtube converter there is. Play the youtube video, click on the taskbar button, pick your format and it would download the MP3 file to any folder of your choice, and you could edit the name before downloading.

About two weeks ago it stopped working. It won't download the file properly and the file type selections are limited to to MP3 and MP4 where there were 4 file types before. The program used to write a tmp file to the directory before completing the download. It no longer does that.

I sent an email over a week ago to the developer and so far no response. It was truly the best converter out there. I've tried dozens of them.

I hope it gets fixed. Five stars when it works. One star for no developer attention.

(Thanks for the response Jeremy. The troubleshooting seemed to fix the download issue, but it now opens 3 command prompt windows while downloading and then closes them instead of simply writing the temp file and deleting it after. Is there a way to fix that? The temp file was much better than the having all the command prompt windows open.

It would have been useful if there had been an explanation on the firefox page of what the functions do in the options panel. That would have saved me and you a lot of time. Let me know about the command prompt window issue.)

When I get these last couple of issues figured out, I'll send you some money. This addon is well worth paying for.

File Types

Hi, you can restore the old file types from Tools -> Options -> Youtube MP3 Podcaster. HD is missing in the current build, but if you install a nightly from www.glimmersoft.com you'll get it back as well.

For the problems you're having downloading in general, try uninstalling the plugin from about:addons and then reinstalling.

You might also need to go to Tools -> YoutubeMP3 Podcaster -> Options -> Troubleshooting and click the 'Refresh Youtube' button. If you do that you'll want to find a long youtube video and let it play from start to finish. This will refresh to code logic that controls the Youtube Downloads. :)

Great addon but I found a bug and developer hasn't responded so far Rated 3 out of 5 stars

When it's working, its a great addon. But I found a bug (W7 64, FF28.0): Sometimes when I want to download an mp3 of lets say 45 mins, it downloads it as an mp3 but its like 500mb and my phone wont play it. Such a strange thing: when I play it on my pc VLC plays as a video, just like on youtube. But it is an mp3, not mp4! I thought mp3's couldnt contain video, but apparently it can. Developer hasn't responded so far...

This an awesome extension! It works kinda well, what I mean is that it seems to break alongside with flashblock, but still, it's pretty impressive because I need the bitrate slider!

It didn't live up to expectations :( Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I gave this a low review because the program doesn't download the file "As Is" with the exact title. What it does is download MULTIPLE files on your computer with a DIFFERENT title than the original. It was a complete waste of my time and I would recommend downloading "YouTube to MP3 1.2.3" instead of this if you're intending to download any music files. I hope this helps!!

Hi :P

Developer here. All youtube mp3 downloaders have to start with the video; there's no MP3 Audio files on youtube :P. The idea behind my plug in is to do the conversion directly on the PC instead of going out to another site. :D

It's Ok. thankX!

Works. But only if you have the patience to not convert too many files at once. Plus it annoyingly will first download the file in its original format and then convert it in the background in a manner that slows the computer down noticeably (yes, perhaps there is no other way, but it annoys me, still).

Browser Hijacked Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I liked the program but it has an unpleasant habit of opening a tab on my browser when I first open it up. I do not appreciate having tabs opened that I didn't choose to open myself. I have uninstalled this and will not use it again until this "feature" is removed. This is a bad business practice, as bad as McAfee trying to install itself every time I upgrade Flash, IMO. If you want to keep your customers, stop forcing them to look at a browser tab they're not interested in.

Need option to remove icon button from youtube page, i really dont want the icon appearing below the video.

currently i am using a style to make the icon smaller so it wouldnt break the layout, but if this option doesnt come soon i am gonna add it to adblock.

btw, just another suggestion:
can you add the options menu to the toolbar icon, thankyou

Downloads YouTube video and audio very simply; I used to use the in-page links it added to the YouTube page, but haven't seen those lately - may have been removed in favor of the Toolbar button, which gives all options. Sometimes have to refresh the page when I've clicked on another video in the same page instead of opening a new tab, because the button menu won't automatically update to the current video. My security program doesn't like how much it calls other resources, (ffmpeg, mp3enc...) but once authorized, it saves the files just fine.

Inline links

The inline links can be added back from the tools menu. Go to Tools (Alt-T) Youtube MP3 Podcaster -> Options and uncheck "Hide controls on youtube.com". :).

We're working the refresh issue. It's cropping up more with the new changes to youtube :P
