There are plenty of ways to find music online – SoundCloud, Spotify, BandCamp, to name a few – but some recordings are only available as videos online. Unreleased tracks, live performances, and international artists' music are often impossible to find in the places you usually get your music. But it can be difficult 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 anywhere, waiting for minutes, or compromising your device. To convert videos to MP3 files, you'll need to know just 3 steps:
- Find your video
- Upload it to Kapwing's Video Converter
- Publish & download!
Step 1: Find Your Video
First, you’ll need to know where you can access your video. If you want to use a video you found online, just copy its URL! You can use videos from Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Twitter, and pretty much any major video sharing platform on the internet! Either right click on the URL at the top of the page or right-click on the video while it’s playing and select “Copy Link.” Now you’re ready to upload your video!
And if you want to use a video you recorded yourself, or one that you have downloaded onto your device, make sure you can find it in your file browser! It’s a good idea to rename your video file to something that you can search for, or 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 "Products" from the menu at the top of the window. 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" button and find your MP4 video in the file browser pop-up window. Kapwing will automatically upload your video to the Video Converter tool.
Now, simply select "MP3" from the menu on the left-hand side of the page! Here you can also choose "Trim Video," if you'd like to download only a portion of the video's audio track. Just move the sliders to choose the portion you want to use.
Step 3: Create & Download Your MP3!
Once you're ready to convert your video, click "Create" at the bottom left corner of the window. Kapwing will work its magic and your MP3 file will be ready for you to download in no time!
When your MP3 is done processing, just click "Download MP3!" If you're using an iPhone, you'll need to download the very small Kapwing mobile app from the App Store. The app doesn’t require any login – it’s only meant to help you download your content! To download your MP3 on your iPhone, just copy the URL of the download page and paste it into the URL field in the Kapwing app.
