When a new song is released, the music video would be an attractive point, helping to highlight the song itself. Some music lovers enjoy watching music videos instead of just listening to the songs. 

However, iTunes music videos are only available to those who purchase them and are encoded by M4V format; for some free YouTube music videos, you can only enjoy them online. Therefore, more users wonder how they can enjoy downloaded music videos in MP3 format freely on any devices without limitations. Fortunately, this post offers two great ways for you.


Part 1. How to Convert iTunes Music Video to MP3

As for iTunes music videos, users could only purchase them from iTunes Store. Also, even you have paid for them, you could not enjoy them on any devices or media players.

Not only that, Batch conversion mode and up to 16X faster conversion can provide quick and convenient service for users. So, try the free version of the TuneFab Apple Music Converter, and you'll get high-quality music.
