Wisdom of the Crowd - DIY

how to get around online and best achieve your goals (usually free of charge)

While there are many ways to listen to the music nowadays, including streaming audio, video services, download sites and radio shows. And while some require you to sign up, and in many cases pay to hear the sound, there are those that don't. One of them is Soundcloud. It does have registration and subscription options, but it will work without those as well. So does their app, soundcloud.com refuses to load in browser on mobile devices, pushing its app to be installed. Always remember, if you don't want the app, you can instruct your browser to request the desktop version of the site, and it will work then on your smartphone.. In browser it's easier to get the URL address of the podcast or radio show you want to download from soundcloud to mp3.

soundcloud to mp3 header

Soundcloud is mostly known for hosting podcasts and radio shows. Those longer continuous sessions usually span 1 hour long periods of hosts talking, music mixing, tracks changing, etc. I've been into soundcloud since the first days DJs started sharing their DJ Mixes and radio shows there. Now pretty much all labels, producers and DJs have accounts on soundcloud. I haven't really heard many famous singers on soundcloud, but maybe because i don't listen to some certain music styles, or tracks in general..

As I've said, I am into DJ Podcasts and radio shows. Some DJs and labels allow downloads of their podcasts, they know that soundcloud streams their music at 128kbps average (and i mean – mediocre) sound quality, while download option, if allowed, provides file as owner has uploaded it. Sometimes downloads can be WAV huge files, which are not really what we want.. Here comes https://soundcloudintomp3.com – nice clean website with fresh design that allows one to download podcasts and radio shows from soundcloud.

Soundcloud to mp3 quality

Sound Quality will max at 128kbps in most cases, but for headphones that is more than enough. I usually download my next favorite radio show or talk podcast right on my smartphone and listen to it while on the train, on the way to work.. While soundcloud does have this kinda annoying feature that tries to download full mp3 sometimes 1-2hrs long of maybe 50-110MB filesize right away onto your device, even if you are just going to listen to first 2-3 minutes of it, given your download speed is fast enough, your device will have downloaded whole stream before you even finish your 2-3 minutes of listening... I sometimes return for 1 or 2 tracks i really liked in the radio show, and have to download whole stream over and over..

Why i say “download stream”? Cause that's how soundcloud's site and app work. Audio stream is served as mp3 and thanks to browser's native behaviors and web app settings mp3 is downloaded as fast as possible.. Maybe to make it easier to fast forward through music, or reverse, or seek, maybe even to free server connections for other listeners, or whatever other reasons.. In any case, I like my Galaxy to download mp3 once and keep it. That's why i use soundcloud downloader.

How to save soundcloud to mp3

All you need is to copy the URL of the page with the podcast on soundcloud, and paste it into the white box (on dark background – easy to find), and press or tap blue button to the right. Remember to do it on the device you want mp3 to end up on. It is much easier to open do this right on your smartphone, rather than to do it on your desktop, and then transfer mp3 to your smartphone, basically creating 2-3 extra steps.. In any case, page below shows what you'd see after pasting some URL and clicking submit.

Now comes the interesting part, where this site does download of the mp3 2 different ways. There's HTML5 code to rename the file while downloading, but it doesn't always work, so this site does Javascript download of the file, which is quite fun to watch. You can download “raw” mp3, which is same mp3, only named some random gibberish. Pressing green button will run countdown and then “instantly” save mp3, while orange button will download mp3 like browsers normally do with any other files..

Now all you need to do is find files in the download tab of your browser, move them to some other folder on your device, or just keep them there, and press play on any of those mp3s.. That's all. 1 time downloaded, saved and ready to be replayed 10 more times with zero extra data usage. It is a process similar to youtube to mp3 converting, only soundcloud already serves their streams as mp3 format, so technically anyone can obtain those mp3s by finding them in browser cache folders.. Harder on mobile, but still possible..

I hope you find this useful. Thanks for reading.

here's what i'd like to say to everyone out there using youtube as their music shuffle ipod whatever service from the past... now we have these unlimited data plans on our phones that allows us stream youtube unlimited... plus with this trick you can play songs (read – stream youtube videos) while your phone is locked, wow.. And so what do those of us do whose parents (or finances) do not allow them to purchase the unlimited data plans for their mobile devices?

Here comes ListenToYoutube

first we need to make one thing clear.. we do it the old way, by asking a question and answering it...

Q. What is https://listentoyoutube.online/?

A. It's a youtube mp3 converter extraordinaire.

the site as it turns out has been a great help to school teachers and college professors over the years. maybe recently this stopped being an issue, when teachers can now just stream some video via their phone to bluetooth connection of their projector or whatnot, and all will work seamlessly and kids will watch the video or movie or some interview from youtube..

but not 5-10 years ago. then you'd have to actually download video from youtube to show it to your class later.. or convert youtube to mp3 prior to beginning the class, 'cause it would take long and would still need to be somehow played or streamed to everyone..

and thus teachers and professors and educationalists all over the globe have discovered ListenToYoutube, which has become synonymous with “Youtube to mp3 converter” keyword in google, funny, but fact. Probably “listen to” is equivalent to “mp3 converter”.. makes a little sense, right?

About ListenToYoutube

well, i am not going to keep you any longer. check out the site, it's easy to use, has some ads but oh well such sites need to survive somehow, they do all the work converting youtube to mp3.. so we will pardon them these popups, especially that they don't happen so often, usually 1 time for 1 session, 5 minutes or more, while converting 3-4 videos shouldn't take more than 3 minutes.. so 1 popup per session, that's not too draconian, right? try keepvid

otherwise check this out, site was featured in Best Youtube Mp3 Converters Wiki. so it should be worth visiting and giving it a chance. millions of people before you did, so you should try too!

hope this helps.

This here article is the opener for a series of texts on the subject of how to get around online in the vast oceans of internet, and how to achieve your (online) goals fast and secure, and (usually) for free.

The first advice i'd like to give is on the subject of how to download music from youtube.. It is quite an obvious solution, given that we do have youtube, which receives probably 90% of the current trending music to be published and streamed.

Usually this is done for the ad revenue. They say, people get 3-4 USD for every 1000 video views.. I don't know for sure if this is true, but if it were... Imagine... Remember that Psy – Gangnam style video? It has gathered some over 3 billion views on youtube.. We can even say, every other person on earth has seen this video.. amazing, right? In any case, this Psy must have collected somewhere in the realm of 5-10 million for ads placed on that video. Not bad, huh?

And since they (owners) do make huge money off these videos, i do not consider it a moral dilemma when it comes to “should i download this song?” I am not going to buy it anyways, so why not just download it, convert it from youtube to mp3?

Morals of youtube to mp3 converting

If you have a problem downloading music off youtube, here's your solution... This is not illegal. Youtube and music labels want you to believe this is somehow illegal. But it is not illegal. Let's say some website says “do not post hate speech or curse out others”. And so you go ahead and do that – curse someone and hate on them a whole lot in the posts..

What happens now? Is it illegal, the thing you did? Well, some countries might consider it so, but let's say you just flaming and talking garbage and that's it? You actually are not breaking any laws here. All you did was go against that website's wishes and terms of service. your actions didn't break any laws... Just did what they asked you not to do... What's the worst that can happen? Website will terminate your account, in worst cases – try to block your ip from accessing them. Solution – get another IP or a proxy...

In any case, downloading music from youtube is not illegal. It is just bad behavior. And the worst that can happen is a slap on the wrist for that bad behavior.
