My go-to site for Youtube mp3 downloads, the one Don Mason recommended (for private listening) has shut down. Same for the Youtubes (for personal viewing).

A little Googling confirms that the industry is going after all the download sites with threats.

Anyone have a legal site they are using to download music from a video.......BUT.......without having to download a software program first?

Thanks Nigel....I was trying to translate it on "Google translate" from Russian until I finally figured out the language was German. Then I saw "English" on the bottom.........one click and....I was pleased I didn't have to learn German to use this.

Do you use this site regularly?...........another way of saying "have you found it to be safe?"

One can download Youtube videos AND music?

Back to "square one!" I tried it (http://convert2mp3.net/) and I got a message saying "We are sorry. Converting music videos from YouTube is not possible in your territory / region."

Anyone else have a suggestion that is legal?

All the sites I use are legal....but the catch is you actualy pay for the music you download, but here is the neat thing....the artists and writers then benefit.

I can give you a list if you like, but maybe thats not what you are looking for wink

Thanks, Tonewheel, but that stops me dead in my tracks right there. I don't mind purchasing songs I really like, but, cash only......I don't do any purchases online. Don't put any personal information at all online. Don't even buy interesting stuff I see on Amazon for that reason. It limits me, but too much hacking and scamming going on these days.

I purchase Visa debit cards at my local credit Union to use online. Cost $103 for $100. No personal information needed. Cheap identity protection.

Jerry.......thanks for tipping me off on this. It might be the answer I need. But, what is a "local credit Union?" Or should I call Visa and inquire about it?

I've always paid cash for everything, so I don't know much about the in's and out's of banking. Don't even know what an ATM machine is. Still don't understand the system after reading this:

Visa Debit Card - Google

You can purchase a pre-paid 'gift' card at almost any store - Walmart, Target, super market, etc. Some come with a fixed dollar value, some you specify the amount you want on the card. There is usually a small fee attached to the purchase or activation of the card. You can then use it for on-line purchases.

As Tony stated they are prepaid cards with no attachments to any financial accounts. They can be purchased just about any store/supermarket. Some are limited to only US purchases. Some style, sheets music, backing tracks are outside of the US and require a worldwide card.

I’m still not sure I’m understanding. I called two banks, CVS, Barnes & Noble, Walmart, etc and they either don’t have any info on these cards…..or……they have preset gift cards. I know I read somewhere that you can buy a “temporary” debit card for the exact amount you need and then it evaporates never to be seen again.

So, in real life now, I want to purchase an item on Amazon or online somewhere. Theoretically the item is priced at $89.95. Now where do I go to purchase an $89.95 “(plus fees) temporary” debit card (and use the debit card # on the card)? I don't want to use a "gift card."

Thanks Tony........that's exactly, I mean EXACTLY, what I was looking for. I don't know how you found that but I'm glad you did. I made some calls from the info here and found that they have them at Walgreen's. That's the only store I DIDN'T call and that's where they stocked them. My first purchase was $56,712.32 (plus a transaction fee of $1,233.72).....I bought a boat for Gary.

I have to go back to my original question.

"Anyone have a legal site they are using to download music from a video.......BUT.......without having to download a software program first?"

Still can't find one anywhere!

Have you tried FREEMAKE VIDEO DOWNLOADER in combination with FREEMAKE VIDEO CONVERTOR ?
When installing do the custom installation and do NOT accept all the extras. I also use Freemake Audio Convertor but since a year or so have to pay 12 bucks for that one. All in all they do al the things that I want though.
Check out www.FREEMAKE.COM

I went to this site and downloaded these and Avast detected and stopped two malware. Uninstalling.

Tried to uninstall and said some components still there but can remove manually. Oh, good. What and where? frown

Scott...thanks for researching this. I almost missed your post.

Have you been using this for a length of time now? And it's legit...it does what it's supposed to do....efficiently?

Works fine for me. All the other links no longer work in my area. This one must be out of the country.
