With YouTube and a few simple steps, you can record and edit a high-quality mp3 for all your friends to hear, and even upload it for yourself as well. Follow these three simple steps to get started and be able to play the video directly from your blog or website.
The first step is to get a blank file and save it to a folder that you will use as your source. Make sure that the file is an .m3u8 file that uses the wave format. In the folder, find an .m3u8 file and save it to your hard drive. Now you have a blank file that you can use to create the mp3 in YouTube.
The next step is to load up your media player of choice. Browse to the file you just saved. If you do not have the file yet, click on the search bar and type in “YouTube to MP3”. Hit enter and let the player pick the file. You will be presented with a variety of options when you are in the video player.
You can change several things in the filename. You can change the extension to .mp3, just change the extension to .avid, or choose a new name. Before you make a decision, make sure that you have downloaded the file that you want to use. This way, you can ensure that the file you are using is what you want.
The next step is to open the file that you have chosen to convert. Go into the “import playlist” option. By default, most players allow you to import files. Click on this option and then enter the name of the file you saved previously into the box.
The next step is to click on the “Playlist” icon. This will load up the queue, which is usually the last tab. Go to the first playlist, and then click on the play button. Repeat this process for the second playlist. After clicking play, you will see a line that says, “Started by /u/KZDMMIIX” and under that is a number.
Add “.m3u8” to the end of the filename, such as “YouTube to mp3.m3u8”. Then hit “OK”. Now you will hear the video you created at full quality.
If you would like to play it at a lower bit rate, go to the left side of the program, where you will see a “media player” icon, and click on it. The next step is to click on the media player icon, which will take you to a different screen. Go into the file, hit “Playback”, and then pick the filename that you would like to use.
The final step is to set the filename to a single file that contains your username and the video title. Now, play it and see how it sounds.
If the audio is much distorted, turn the volume up a little bit, so that it is louder, and play it again with the volume muted. This may sound annoying, but sometimes people forget to turn the volume down on their headphones. So be prepared to do it for them.
If it sounds good, and you want to make changes to the file, you can start by going to the File menu and clicking “Edit”. You can change the duration of the song, change the music channel, or you can also add a caption to the video.
