What you need
There are many downloadable application tools in the internet that offers Youtube conversion service. Some may have more bells and whistles than others; you just need the correct software.

2. Click "ADD" to load your video.

3. Output settings
After you add video files, you can select an output format for each video file and find the destination folder on your computer for saving the output files;

Click the "Convert to" drop-down menu to select the output format you need to convert;
Click the "Target Path" button to find the destination folder for saving output file;

4. Hit "start" to begin the conversion.

How to trim certain audio or merge multiple audio files together

Trim certain audio

If you have listened to something on YouTube that you really enjoyed, but the whole audio file is too large for you, or only certain audio that you need, then you may want to trim some part off. There are options on iSkysoft Video Converter to capture a certain clip. Go to "Edit", click trim, by dragging the Start Time slider to set the start timeand dragging the End Time slider to set the finish time you can get the ideal audio duration.

Merge multiple audio files

There is only one click for you to merge multiple files. On the main panel, select the files, and then check the "merge into one file" before converting.
