YouTube is a popular website hosting a variety of videos, including music videos. If you have found music embedded in a YouTube video that you wish to add to your personal music collection, you should know that it is possible to burn the music from YouTube to a CD for personal use. This process is fairly easy and only takes a few minutes to perform, so you can be listening to your favourite YouTube music from your CD player soon.
Locate the YouTube video which has the music you want to burn to a CD. Click on the video you are interested in to ensure that you are on the proper website.
Highlight the URL in your web browser, then right click and click on "Copy" from the drop-down menu that appears to copy the URL.
Visit your preferred video conversion website, such as the one listed in Resources, in a new web browser. Paste the YouTube URL you copied in Step 2 in the video conversion's text box by placing your cursor in the text box and right clicking, then selecting "Paste" from the drop-down box.
Click "Download" on the video conversion website, which will convert the YouTube video to an MP3 and download it to your computer's desktop.
Repeat Step 1 through 4 for all YouTube music that you would like to burn to your CD.
Open CD burning software on your computer, such as Windows Media Player, and click "File." Choose "New Playlist" from the drop-down box and type the title of your new playlist in the blank text box.
Drag the YouTube songs you downloaded to your desktop in Step 4 into the playlist you created in Step 6.
Insert your blank CD-R or CD-RW into your computer's CD-ROM drive. Then, click "Burn CD" on your CD burning software, which will prompt the music in your playlist to be burnt to your CD.
Keep the length of your playlist in mind. Most blank CD-Rs and CD-RWs only hold about 74 minutes of audio.
