Why You Need to Convert YouTube to MP3 on Mac OS X 10.11?
The reason you need to download and convert music from YouTube to MP3 on Mac is that YouTube provides you with countless music video resources formatted in FLV, MP4, WebM or 3GP, like Taylor Swift’s Bad Blood, OMI’s Cheerleader, Wiz Khalifa’s See You Again, etc, which, however as you can see, is video format instead of audio format. So when it comes to MP3 audio format, YouTube seems to be nonchalant as it’s not designed to host files that are exclusively audio (.MP3, .WAV, .AAC, etc.). That’s why you cannot directly download audios from YouTube but have to convert YouTube to MP3 on your Mac.
