The internet is packed with websites dedicated to providing high-quality music for listeners to enjoy while on the go. Coveted sites such as SoundCloud, Spotify, and BandCamp, have a collection of music by new and notable artists to satisfy interests in various genres. Other sites provide a similar service, but some recordings are only available as videos online. Unreleased tracks, live performances, and international artists' music are difficult to find as an MP3. The best option for this scenario is to find a fast, simple, safe, and reliable way to convert videos to MP3 files.
I'm going to show you how to use Kapwing to convert any video to an MP3 audio file without signing in, waiting for minutes, or compromising your device. To convert videos to MP3 files, you'll need to know the following three steps:
- Find your video
- Upload it to Kapwing's Video Converter
- Publish & download!
Step 1: Find Your Video
Begin by pulling up the video you want to convert as an MP3 on your device. If you want to use a video you found online, copy its URL. You can use videos from Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Twitter, and many other major video-sharing platforms on the internet. To copy the link, right-click the URL at the top of the page or right-click on the video while it’s playing. Then, select “Copy Link.” Now you’re ready to upload your video!
If you're using a recorded video or a video you downloaded, make sure you know where it's located in your file browser. It's helpful to rename the MP4 to a term that is easily searchable, or you can simply keep a file browser window open.
Step 2: Upload it to Kapwing's Video Converter
Once you've found your video file or copied a link, head over to Kapwing.com and click "Tools" from the menu at the top of the window. You can use Kapwing on any device with a browser such as an iPhone, Android, PC, or tablet. Scroll down and find "Convert Video" from Kapwing's list of tools.
In Kapwing's video converter, either paste the link that you copied in the field that says "Paste a URL," or click the purple "Upload File" button and find your MP4 video in the file browser pop-up window. Kapwing will automatically upload your video to the Studio.
You can make additional edits to your audio like splitting the sound, trimming the length, and adjusting the volume and speed. If your prefer working with audio layer only, right-click the video layer and select "Detach Audio."
Step 3: Create & Download Your MP3!
Once you're ready to convert the video, click the arrow next to "Export Video" and select, "Export as MP3." Kapwing will work its magic and your MP3 file will be ready for you to download in no time!
When your MP3 has finished processing, click the "Download" button to save it to your device. Now, you are all set to listen to your MP3 at your convenience!
