Hi,

Was the sound extracted from YouTube? There's been a support issue lately where files that were extracted from YouTube have non-standard headers, so that they won't load into Mixcraft. Either YouTube changed something, or the app that people use to get audio from YouTube has changed to create these oddball MP3 files.

I’ve been following this whole thread since I’ve been having the same issue as well. I bought mixcraft just so I can download beats from YT and rap on them for fun. But lately none of the beats I download work. And I’ve try everything. I saw this was your last reply. And I just wanted to ask is their anyway around it ? Or that’s it, we’re just not gonna be able to load beats From YT into Mixcraft any longer ? 😔

How does one extract audio? Is there an option to extract it?

Hi,

I have to say that extracting audio from YouTube videos would likely be a copyright violation, and definitely against terms of service, so there's that. Probably not legal.

I wonder if everybody with this problem is using the same method?
