Update: NOW use this trick to download music directly on your BlackBerry 10 device! I have been using this trick the past couple of weeks on my BlackBerry Z10 and it actually works even better on the Z10 and is easier once you get the hang of it. Just make sure you are on the desktop version of Youtube on your Z10.
In this post I am going to explain an easy and free way to download music on your BlackBerry PlayBook. This is a very easy way to get pretty much whatever song you want on your PlayBook tablet it just takes a few simple steps and no software is needed and everything is done on your PlayBook itself.
This works with many internet connected devices though I do not know if it works on the Apple iPad I do know that this does not work on the Amazon Kindle Fire. All you need to do this is Youtube open on your PlayBook browser and a Youtube to MP3 converter. Just Bing or Google search for a converter or use the one I use which is Youtube-mp3.org and it works perfectly and involves no account or software download of any kind.
In Youtube just search for whatever song you want to download, try to not use any videos that have advertisements in the video anywhere. From there copy the URL of the video you are watching, switch over to your Youtube-MP3 converter which you should leave open during this process. Paste the URL in the designated area and click the convert button, give it a second then when given the option click ‘Download’ and you will be prompted to save just as you would any other document or download so click ‘Save’.
After the song is done downloading you will see that the song is in your Music application on your PlayBook ready to play. So that’s it, it’s very easy to do and takes a shorter time than you may think to download plenty of songs using this method. Enjoy and leave a comment especially if you happen to try this on other devices and it works as well.
Note: These songs will download and go into your ‘Songs’ category and will NOT show in your ‘Artist’ category.
