A while ago we reviewed Spotify, a great music streamer with one feature missing – the ability to download music to your own system on the go. FreeMP3Get solves this problem, downloading songs from YouTube which you can then store on your home computer. We take a look at how the program works and whether or not it’s worth the download.
Installation and Setup
FreeMP3Get uses only a few megs of RAM even when you’ve got a lot of songs queued to download. It also installs to a tiny amount of space, so system resources shouldn’t be an issue. The program lives up to its free name with no registration or nag screens throughout installation and use.
Ease of Use
The site for the program describes it as ‘100% legal’ although considering YouTube themselves are struggling to delete copyrighted music from their service every day, we’re not so sure. The program itself is legal though and it’s up to the user how they choose to use it. There are hundreds of thousands of totally un-copyrighted music tracks available on YouTube and through the program.
