This tool is both a YouTube video downloader and a video converter. Ideally, both functions should work together, but here they have been designed as separate tools. The program can also be used as an audio extractor – to extract the audio from your video files – and as a DVD ripper as well. It supports a really large number of output formats and presets, whose parameters you can customize, too.
Solid YouTube to MP3 Converter offers a pleasant and comfortable user interface. It includes a toolbar on the top side that provides you with access to all the program's functions. YouTube video download is, in my opinion, the main function of this program. It runs on a separate window and it allows you to add as many URLs from YouTube videos as you wish to download. You can add them individually or in batches. Besides, you can select the download video quality and the output folder. Finally, you can select to "download only" or to "download and convert" your videos. The first option allows you to get the original YouTube videos (e.g., FLV files), while the second one adds your downloaded videos to a conversion list automatically.
Whether you add your video files manually or download them from YouTube, the program's video converter will create a conversion list for you with all of them. The video converter runs in the program's main window and it includes a built-in media player. It is capable of capturing snapshots of your listed video files, too. You can select the output format from the wide variety of options available, and customize its parameters if required.
You can also use the "Load DVD" button to add the titles of a DVD movie to your video conversion list. You can add them both from physical DVDs and from DVD folders. Besides, you can specify the output subtitle and the audio tracks to be included in your resulting files. Finally, the program offers you a fourth function, called "Clip". It allows you to extract segments from already existing video files, regardless of where they came from.
In conclusion, Solid YouTube to MP3 Converter is a comprehensive tool that performs various tasks sequentially: downloads videos from YouTube, converts their format into another, and extracts video segments from them. Unfortunately, when this program is in use, it consumes too much system resources, slowing your system down considerably.
