And for the latest developments in the Youtube to mp3 and and video mp3 download conversion debates, take a look at these articles.

YouTube-mp3.org Now Surpasses SoundCloud In Total Traffic

TubeNinja Offers YouTube a Suggestion On Where to Stuff Its Cease-and-Desist Letter

Hitlist: The 10 Biggest Free Mp3 Music Download Sites

Meanwhile, overall activity around YouTube to MP3 converters remains robust.  Of course, the surge is happening alongside a rapid expansion in streaming, across both audio and video.  That includes explosive increases at YouTube, Spotify, Apple Music, Pandora, and Amazon Music, just to name a few.

But not everyone is ready for total access.  Indeed, surging converter adoption suggests a massive group of streaming laggards.  And, a massive group of sites answering the demand for mp3 download conversion.  All of which has prompted the massive lawsuit against German mp3 download converter YouTube MP3, or youtube-mp3.org.

Legalities aside, youtube-mp3.org is a site that knows how to serve its customers.  And one ingredient of its success is a completely simple process. It isn’t flashy, but it is effective.

Damn effective.

 

 

Others are similarly simple.  But YouTube MP3 tops the ranking with an elephantine 357 million monthly visitors.  No, that’s not a typo.  But it is bigger than SoundCloud, and a big, big target for the music industry.

All of which suggests that the RIAA is starting at the top and working its way down.  But that strategy could backfire, with site founder Philip Matesanz already beating an initial litigation round.  Back in 2011, Matesanz successfully argued that YouTube MP3 is merely a tool for transferring video into another format.  Namely converting videos to mp3s.

It’s just like a VCR or DVR, and a German judge agreed.  End of story, until now.

This time around, the industry disagrees on a number of grounds.  And the venue is the US, not Germany.  Now, US-based attorneys have accused Matesanz of locally storing popular mp3s, similar to the German case.  That localized approach facilitates quick mp3 deliveries by side-stepping the manual conversion.  Ultimately, that functionality was removed to comply with a German court order, a step that allowed the site to keep operating.

Which opens the next question: would Matesanz be foolish enough to reinstate that functionality?

That’s questionable.  And the stakes are extremely high for the music industry.  Any victory by Matesanz would effectively protect an entire class of video to download converters.  And, create a brand-new piracy headache for the recording industry.

Meanwhile, other download converter categories are emerging.  That includes Instagram video downloaders, a complement to Instagram photo downloaders.  And, Soundcloud to mp3 downloaders, part of a broader demand for streaming downloaders.

    If it is just one tune per visit 99¢ per tune would make almost $800 millions / month.
    That would by almost $10 billion dollar a year or 2/3 of current GLOBAL recording industry!

    Thanks you Sir Lucian for creating and maintaining streaming/advertising SUICIDE!

    It’s almost as if the assembly of such sites is so trivial that a kid can do it.
