KeepVid is probably one of the first tools you will find when looking for an online tool to download your YouTube playlist. When you first load the website, you will need to click on the “YouTube Video Converter” to access the tool. Once you do that, all you have to do is enter the URL for the YouTube playlist that you want to download and then click “Download.”
But there are a few problems with this online tool. The whole site just seems like an advertisement for the premium desktop tool by the same name. Every time you click on any button on the site, a popup appears encouraging you to download the desktop version. There are also a whole host of other popup ads that hinder the proper function of the tool.
At first glance this tool looks very clean and easy to use. After all, to use it all you have to do is paste in the URL of the playlist and hit “Convert”. And when we tested it, YouTube Playlist converter worked very well. The videos on the playlist were all converted to MP3 and we were presented with the option to download the audio files individually or in a .zip file. The problems we found with this tool were the popup ads and the limitation of numbers to download (Maximum 20 songs).
This site is also quite easy to use since it allows you to simply paste in the URL into the tool to begin the process. It however also allows users to add multiple YouTube video URLs if you want to download numerous videos that are not in a playlists. While this tool doesn’t have the annoying ads we found in the two above, you will have to create an account or log in to use it. This means giving the site your personal information including your email address.
When we entered the YouTube URL for the playlist into this website, all the videos on that playlist were populated in a matter of seconds.
We then had the option to download each resultant MP3 individually. But when we clicked on the “Download” link next to the video, the website redirected us to another website where we were required to “allow” notifications before we could even see the download link. In other words, this site doesn’t work. It is just a ploy to get you to allow push notifications on your browser.
Again, this website makes it very easy for you to see the Playlist you want to download. Once we entered the playlist URL into the field provided, MyPlayList quickly populated the videos on that playlists.
The complication comes in when downloading the resultant MP3 files. The tool allows you to download up to 28 videos of 50 minutes or less for free. If your playlist contains more than 28 videos, you will have to purchase the premium version to download them all. The download does however begin immediately although depending on the duration of the videos on the playlist, you may have to wait a few hours to download all the songs.
