When I download a Youtube video and covert to mp3 the sound quality isn't as good. The bass is all crackly?

How do I prevent the bass from some Youtube videos from becoming crackly and reverb-sounding once I convert them to mp3? I know it's not my speakers--the sound is perfect when I play the video online but doesn't sound as good once I convert it. Help!

    What converter are you using? Some converters have gain options which raise the volume. Super has one and mediacoder. also make sure the bitrate isn't too low. Is this an .flv file you are downloading or the .mp4 You might be watching the high quality file on youtube and downloading the low quality. If it's a mono file try converting it as such. There's no real point in converting a mono file to stereo. It will make no difference in sound and will take up more space. Also i would like to recommend a program called winlame. It's simple and really quick at conversions.

    I use Ant Video Downloader to download from youtube.

    Download and install Ant Video Downloader at http://ant.com/video-downloader/ in internet explorer or firefox.

    Go to the page where the video is playing. Click the Download Button when video is buffering. Close the page or search another video.

    When the download completes click the Player Button to play the video.

    You will need a converter for you to play it in other players. The video you have download with ant toolbar works with any video converter.

    It is totally free and contains no adware or spyware at all.
