    Hi,

    I'm looking for an app that allows me to search and convert YouTube videos to mp3. I know there are a lot of apps that do such thing, however, I need one that can export those saved files to my Mac via iTunes File Sharing, Dropbox or any other method.

    Is there such a thing?

    Thanks in advance!

    If you’re going to use Mac then why not go the other way around? Easier & faster.

    Because I'm not in front of my Mac all the time and sometimes I need to do so on the road.

    The Workflow app works for me. I have a workflow that can convert the YouTube video into either mp4, mp3 or m4a. However, i am not sure how to share a specific workflow here.

    The converted mp4 can be saved to Photo apps. The converted mp3 can be shared using Share sheets and Airdrop.

    Could you please instruct me a little bit on how making such workflow? Could it be replicable on a similar app like Launch Center Pro?

    I am not sure about the Launch Center Pro. But first go to the App Store to download the “Workflow” app. Then import the workflow (below) into the Workflow app. Go to the YouTube video that you wanna convert to mp3. Click the share button and choose “Run workflow”. Select the “YouTube Video & Audio” workflow, it will run. Wait until it asks you to choose “Save as mp4 or mp3 or m4a”. Click mp3. It will then do the conversion. Give it a name and then click the “Share sheet” button. There you can share to any cloud services that you have.

    Not a problem. Does this happen to all YouTube videos?

    Can you post exactly what your procedures are after opening the YouTube app? Thanks.

    Hi, I’ve had this shortcut working beautifully for the last few years, but now it doesn’t work anymore. :s

    Is there anything I have to modify or update?
