Download music from Youtube, Soundcloud, Vimeo etc.

Here is another easy way to download free music from sites like Youtube, Soundcloud, Mixcloud, Vimeo any many more.

Looking for program to download music from sites like Youtube, Soundcloud, Mixcloud, Vimeo any many more, look no more.. with MP3 Downloader you can do all that.

This is actually one of these projects what i did just for myself but as they say sharing is caring. Main reason making it was that most of these programs come with some sort of limitations and include advertisements and none of them are portable.

This is actually windows .bat file compiled into executable with 2 other files embed into, will list these files below and idea itself is nothing close to being original but it does what it needs to do and its very easy to use and no installation required with exception of  Microsoft Visual C++ 2010  x86 Redistributable because youtube-dl requires that to work.


How does MP3 Downloader work:

MP3 downloader uses youtube-dl and FFMEG to download and extract MP3 from file. When you download from Soundcloud then its just pretty much downloading because no extraction required and Your MP3 will be 128kbps bitrate, when you download from Youtube then avarage bitrate will be 260kbps so if you chase quality then probably best option will be Youtube.

User interface is very basic as expected from bat file. Basically all you have to do is open MP3 Downloader and paste your music URL into it, everything else will be done for you. Program creates folder "C:\Music Downloads" and stores downloaded music into it also after download is complete that folder opens automatically.


Files embed into MP3 Downloader:

As i mentioned earlier there's only two files included:

  • FFMPEG.EXE 64-bit to extract highest quality MP3 from file
  • YOUTUBE-DL to do download magic and pass it to FFMPEG if needed 


I will take no credit for this one because all i did was using tools available to everyone and this program was created purely educational purposes only.
