Before you continue, this is an obligatory message to warn you that your antivirus may falsely flag this program as malware. The program was written by me, and has absolutely no intention to destroy any system it runs on.

If you still encounter issues, contact me.


Youtube Converter is a simple program that I made in a day to help users download music or videos from Youtube without having to visit any sketchy converter sites. I myself have grown tired of using these sites, when they don’t even work half the time, so this was my solution.

So how do you use it? Grab the zip file, unzip it anywhere you like, and open the converter (convert.exe). Command prompt should show up asking you what you’d like to do.

Type 1 to convert to MP3: You’ll be asked to give a Youtube link. If the link is valid, the converter will begin downloading the song. When it finishes, it should clean up after itself and leave the MP3 file in the same folder as the EXE.

Type 2 to convert to MP4: This is very similar to downloading an MP3, however, it may take longer depending on the quality of the video and how long it is.

Type 3 to convert with custom settings: This is only for advanced users, visit this link for documentation on Youtube-DL.

Type 4 for information about the converter: Prints information about the converter.

That’s about it! Pretty straight-forward. If you run into any issues, please feel free to let me know, and I’ll get back to you!
