Don't post a video on YouTube with background music from a copyrighted source. It's probably going to be taken down. Instead, get free and royalty-free music from one of these sites. It doesn't matter if you're hoping to be a viral sensation or just posting something for family and friends to see. If it's free for the public to see, the copyright owner of that music can make a claim and remove your video. And yes, YouTube is notorious for making your favorite videos disappear because of this.
Ripping songs from YouTube videos is a fairly common practice, and the demand for making the process easier has inspired the production of countless websites and software. But not every service can be considered safe or even completely trustworthy. In fact, some of these services may infect your computer with malware or just produce poor-quality audio files. That said, for this guide, our team has found two methods to make the process safer and easier. And if you choose to download software for ripping audio, be sure to have your chosen antivirus service scan the software for threats prior to installing or using it. While you may not want to download another app, using an installed app tends to be safer and more reliable when it comes to ripping audio from YouTube videos. Fact is, most YouTube ripping sites, even ones that seem safe at first, may eventually fall victim to hackers and malware, and so it may be best to use dedicated software on your desktop for your audio-ripping needs. That said, even when you download software, you should always exercise caution before installing it, by making sure to scan it with your trusted antivirus software. But the free version should be enough for most people. Navigate to the YouTube video whose audio you want to rip.
