Someone has already gone through the trouble of organizing videos and songs into playlists, so why not snatch them up in one go? That’s the idea behind MP3Studio, an easy-to-use but versatile YouTube playlist downloader that handles conversion and saving locally with no supervision and minimal input on your part.
Getting everything to work is almost as simple as using web browser. We’ve made the interface easy to grasp for everyone, with large icons and segments that look and feel like they belong where they’re supposed to. There are countless options we’ll touch on in a bit, but just the act of copying a playlist’s address into the clearly visible bar is enough to initiate a YT download.
ID3 tags are one of those cool extra features we hinted at above. There’s already some degree of organization when you download videos as parts of playlists. Still, you might want to relocate them to different folders make your own groupings regardless of the original playlist. That’s why having ID3 tag support is nice to have, especially once your media count goes up into the hundreds.
It gets better! You don’t have to leave the files in their original form and can convert them instead. Moreover, there are no nasty surprises while downloading them as the software makes full use of the transfer speeds your provider makes available.
Adding playlists’ worth of content in only a few simple steps whenever you feel like it is not just a dream anymore!
Pick a video you want to be downloaded.
You’ll first need to visit YouTube or a different video hosting service of your choice and find an interesting video. You then have to select the link in the address bar of your browser and copy it.
MP3Studio puts out videos at HD quality. 24, 30, and 60 frames per second are supported. You can also download and convert 360-degree videos! These are best viewed through virtual reality goggles like Google Cardboard.
Any video can be converted to 3GP, AVI, MP4, or WebM. You can have MP3Studio convert the video as it’s being downloaded or save it to a disk drive and do so later with a feature that converts local files.
You can download songs off of YouTube in MP3 format with a maximum native bitrate of 128Kbps. MP3Studio also supports converting YouTube songs to MP3s with a bit rate of 320Kbps or lower. That’s great news for audiophiles everywhere!
Our downloader supports AAC and Vorbis as well. AAC or Advanced Audio Coding is a codec that offers the same bitrate as MP3 but offers better sound quality. Vorbis surpasses MP3 in technical sophistication and is available at 192Kbps.

Great question! There are a few compelling reasons for this. Web-based downloaders have limited resources at their disposal and are often accessed by many people at once. The owners have to make the cost up somehow, so they limit download speeds or available output quality. Some resort to even more aggressive or questionable ways of monetizing the site.
Your computer takes care of the conversions, so we only need a fraction of the resources to provide it.
Here’s a short summary of why you should choose MP3Studio over sites like YTMP3, KeepVid, YooDownload, or SaveMedia:
Downloading a video you don’t intend to distribute further is legal. “Fair Use” also makes downloading some videos legal for commercial means, as long as you comply with its guidelines. Using something other than the download button YouTube provides can be seen as a breach of its ToS. However, we’ve yet to hear of someone actually getting into trouble because of this.
We strongly believe that downloading a video from a site that shares them to be consumed at a later time or in offline mode serves the same purpose as timeshifting, so it should fall under fair use. The case of Betamax already sets a precedent. Downloading videos that claim no copyright is therefore legal.
If a video doesn’t hold the Creative Commons license, we advise that you ask its creator for permission first before downloading.
