4 Easy Ways To Convert Your Video To Mp3

With the popularity of podcasts, there is now a higher demand for MP4 to MP3 conversion.

The good news is, converting your videos to MP3 is so much easier today than it was 10 years ago. There are many different ways to do this, and you can do it in few simple steps!

But before we begin… let’s tackle the biggest question: is it legal?

It depends.

If you own your own video, it definitely is! Sometimes you just want to repurpose the audio for other content. You are also free to convert non-copyrighted or royalty-free videos.

However, if the video has copyright, you need to ask permission or pay to convert the videos. This ensures that the owner is rightfully credited and paid for their hard work!

Imagine if you had put so much effort into making a video and someone on the internet stole your work; you would be very upset. Let’s ensure that we support fellow content creators!
