File downloaders and converters you can use to download mp3s are dime a dozen on the web today.

Even as I write this, I am sure you have a few tucked away in your bookmarks folder. A lot of these downloaders grab images in bulk from a webpage or they specialize in grabbing YouTube videos and converting them to MP3 audio files for your smartphone. Quite a few look like weekend projects which do not survive the test of time.

File2HD has withstood the cycle and continues to exist. It is a vanilla tool which serves just one purpose – helping you download mp3s or any other file from a site.

That’s the first part. In the second part, File2HD gives you the option to extract the audio from a video file or convert the video file to iPhone or Windows compatible formats.

Download MP3s and Other Files With File2HD

There’s nothing complicated about the interface.

1. Go to File2HD and enter the URL of the page that has the video or mp3 audio you want to download. It can be a YouTube page or any other.

2. Set the filter for the type of file you want to download (audio, video, images, etc.). Click on Get Files.

3. The page refreshes to display a list of files for that specific page. If you select “All” as the filter option, the tool extracts all file-types associated with the page.

For instance, the list includes stylesheets, browser-side JavaScript files, GIF files, ad files, and more. So, it’s better to set a specific filter before you click on Get Files. As, I have done with “Movies” in the above screenshot.

4. You can right click on any file and download it using Save as or the Save link as option. Save it on your desktop with the File Explorer dialog box.

5. To convert or extract the audio from a video, you can choose from three quality options that are available for most YouTube videos – Low Quality (240p), Standard Quality (360p), and HD (720p).

Click on the Convert button to go to the Online Converter option. It is in Beta so expect a few glitches now and again. Choose Extract for any audio or pick the Convert option for any compatible device.

Do You Listen Offline a Lot?

Offline listening is a default feature in the best streaming apps these days. For instance, YouTube has a feature called Smart Offline that helps you download mp3s and audio where there is no data connection. Spotify Premium allows you to keep 3,333 songs on a maximum of 3 different devices for offline listening. So, you might wonder about these little web tools and their place in today’s hyper-connected world.

    You can use the "MySpace Loader", too. It's working like a charme with the new MySpace version!

    Also, putting flash media on a removable storage device like an external hard disk or flash drive is a great way to play games at your local school or library computer where the sites you found the games on are normally blocked.

    For most free games on the web, if you have XP or Vista, you can download flash games and the like without even usind file2hd. Just go through your temporary internet files and copy the flash game and whatnot into a differnet directory, like the downloads folder.
    Music is still a pain, but using, you can then select many songs to download, and use file2hd for them.
    For videos, get FlashCatch. This is a free plugin to your internet browser that, as far as I know, is only available if you get it through the program store on the U3 enabled flash drives. This program will pretty much download any stearming media, and some music too!

    I don't want to really download music illegally from myspace but there is a band that I was a HUGE fan of here locally and 2 of their best songe were put on myspace then removed and I found them again on aonther myspace account I have been looking ofr these songs for YEARS now and randomally found them tonight unfortunately the band broke up and I know the file for the song still exists especially where I found it on that page player but I cannot purchase since there is no option and believe me I would pay through the nose to have this gem but I cannot obtain it no matter how hard I try and sent the owner of the myspace page a couple messages but no response this is the only way I can get this song I have wanted for YEARS hopefully this site can be fixed or the person (that isn't part of the band) that has these songs will get back to me at some point in time and I can get them. Otherwise im screwed I would like to pay but these songs are so underground and rare plus likely only appealing to me that I doubt I'll ever be able to obtain them ...even legally :(

    im pretty sure that myspace music files don't work anymore, 3 weeks ago i could do it, but not anymore, they (myspace or file2hd) must have stopped it from happening, because file2hd could probs get into a shit load of trouble with it most likely breaking the copyright laws and that stuff. oh well =[

    The original High Quality links don't seem to work, I get a "403: Forbidden" error. I can access the Standard Quality versions, though!
