      Its linking to an adware/toolbar, I would not recommend the “Soundcloud Downloader” mentioned in the video for the fear of virus/trojan backdoor scripts.

    So the 2nd and 3rd methods are completely legal? Is it not considered a copyright infringement? (I reside in Germany and the copyright crackdowns here are harsh)

    1. Chaitanya November 4, 2015

      Hi Gisela, Well the laws for copyright infringement differ from country to country. But you can convert the audio into flac and ogg formats to be on the safer sides

      1. iovaniorgovan July 8, 2016

        And how would converting the audio format will influence the copyright infringemen?
