Things to Keep In Mind

Most videos that are copyrighted have a link in the description below the video to legal sites to download the song or video in MP3 format. Several of the sites above state that they exist for downloading MP3 of non-copyrighted videos. Some of the sites above have Terms and Agreements that you should read before using them to make sure you aren’t breaking the law.

Anytime you use these free sites, always make sure to virus scan the files before opening them with any program on your computer. Remember to check anything you download, program or just a file, to keep your computer healthy and yourself safe. If a site looks sketchy, or has too many “download now” buttons all over it, you are probably better off going to another site. Keep yourself safe.
