We already know that KeepVid is a popular online web application for downloading videos from YouTube and other video sites. It’s great because it does not only download videos as MP4, it also can record and convert videos to your desired format. Now, what if you want to use a tool like it but more specifically for downloading and recording music from any site? Well, guess what? The said video downloading service also offers a solution to that and it’s called KeepVid Music.
What Is It and What Does It Do
KeepVid Music is a great alternative for music lovers who do not want to get KeepVid Pro, the paid desktop version of KeepVid Online. While the latter is more focused on downloading and recording videos from any site, the former is more geared towards music. With it, you can basically download, record, manage, transfer, play and share music whenever you like. Like Pro, it is also paid desktop application that supports both Windows and Mac.
- Easy to install, easy to use.

- Has a built-in browser so you can search, listen or preview a song before downloading it to your computer.
- It’s not only for downloading music directly from YouTube. You can use it to download music from over 10,000 sites including Facebook, SoundCloud, Spotify, DailyMotion, Vimeo, etc.
- It features a “Discover” section where you can explore and search for different music genres, artists, playlists and even top lists right inside the app. Just select the song you want and then download it directly to your computer. You can also download all music from a playlist at once.
- You can record music from any music station or music software.
- Has a built-in music player with option to show or hide lyrics.

- You can create your own music playlists on top of the default playlists.
- The filter option in the music library makes it easier to search for specific music and audio files such as podcasts, audiobooks, recordings, etc.

Even so, you can still do it the traditional “KeepVid way” which is to copy the full URL of the music or video from any source and simply paste it on KeepVid Music to download it to your computer.
In terms of usability, the desktop tool flaunts a user-friendly UI. It doesn’t have a steep learning curve.

You can change the default music format by going to Settings then select the “Download” tab. You can also choose your preferred download and record quality.
Speaking of which, the output quality for both the downloaded and recorded music is at par with the original.
