Hence when you open it in computer it might open as video or sound only file but the properties are not mp3.

android recognizes any file with .mp3 as sound. But when you want to modify based on mp3 you can't. And that's why I am saying this doesn't for me trully converts file.

Okay I just tried it, and no. It really plays as a video files. Not true mp3, sorry. When you play it in your computer it plays it as video, which if you are using Windows Media Player it would be no different but if you use another core audio program it's identify as video file.

Try change the file name to = name.mp4 instead of mp3

Yes, it is a renamed mp3 format. I can change any mp4 video to mp3 by renaming it's format but it'll still be a video. Saying that it's a mp3 format doesn't really determine it as true audio. As I said change the file format to .mp4 and you'll see.

I know this because I do editing and sometimes I alter the audio channels for some modification and I could do that with audio only audio.

ummm okay but why would i want to rename the file to mp4? mp4 is a video. ill leave it as mp3 since thats what im wanting. also as a 3mb file at most it seems like an mp3 to me.

I just wanted to give you an example, how renaming some format can make it to still work. Anyways, you can leave it as mp3 that perfectly fine and fortunately for Android that's a very easy trick to do, they can play the format as audio. So as long as you just going to download and play there is no problem.

But that was my original argument. While for Android phone ogyoutube works nicely it really doesn't convert the video files to mp3 but it just renames it and for me it's not convenient. For other people yes but I would do another method. That's all.

i still really dont get you, an mp4 is 100mb +. when converted to mp3 its 3mb or less. i dont know how thats not convenient. well it does its job for me. well good luck in finding something that suites your needs.
