Part 1. YouTube to MP3 Player: What You Should Know

Before conversion, it's worth learning why you have to choose YouTube to MP3 Player. On one hand, all of the content on YouTube is streamed in FLV format, which is not supported on MP3 players. On the other hand, you're not allowed to directly download music from YouTube. Therefore, you have to convert YouTube music to a supported format that can be played on your MP3 player.

In addition, it's necessary to learn what audio format do MP3 players support. MP3 player is a type of digital audio player or portable media player, which has an embedded small storage medium for storing a large number of audio files. The term 'MP3 player' is somewhat deceptive, causing some consumers to believe that the device only supports MP3 files. In fact, except for MP3, most MP3 players can also support WMA, WAV, AAC, OGG, M4A, FLAC, etc. But MP3 is the most commonly used format and works on almost all devices.
