Step 4: Find a YouTube to MP3 conversion website. Open a new tab or browser window and type "YouTube to MP3 converter" into your search engine's search field. You will find many websites. When choosing which site to use, you need to remember:

1. If a site asks you to pay for the service, it might even be a scam; you're better off just trying another site that doesn't charge.

2. Be careful when choosing a conversion site that you don't wind up on a scam site. Before going to the site, do an online search of the site's name to see if any negative search results come up.
