MPEG-1 Audio Layer III (MP3) is the most popular audio format in the world, and is supported by a wide range of software and portable devices. As the name “youtube2mp3” suggests, this was the first converter added to the program.
MP3 support requires the LAME MP3 Encoder, which is included in the Windows installer and installed by default.
You may specify metadata tags for the artist, title, album, genre, year of release, and track number. If “Save tags for next conversion” is checked, youtube2mp3 will remember the artist, album, genre, and year tags, and automatically increase the track number. This may be helpful when converting tracks from an album.
