Mp3Skull: Get Free YouTube HD Videos
You could get any HD video from YouTube from Mp3 Skull in 2014.
Alexa stats showed top traffic in West Africa came from Nigeria. Also, the fad was to get direct download links for a Premium-tagged video on any site (Mostly SoundCloud and YouTube).
At the time, the platform ranked in the top five hundred (500) best-rated websites, checking for various stats and viewer/download traffic. Most of the visitors typically looked up the free audio & video song options on the site.
HD video conversion was the way to describe Mp3Skull to a newbie. And who wouldn’t want to watch those contents for free? Probably non-fans!
The gist is _
Integrate videos and morph the quality to fit the data specification;
Provide alternative links to a single title, allowing users to choose the one that works in their region;
Download videos without a subscription.
And it’s quite fulfilling how Mp3 Skull delivers these goals without a glitch. Providing access to the Mp3-converted HD videos does the trick and drives traffic to the website.
But that’s not all. The current Mp3 Skull site is a rebrand of what was left of its previous iteration. See a peek at the censorship in the following section.
Pirated content & Shut Down
One of the rules of DMCA is copyright authorization. As such, you cannot share or edit private digital content without the consent of the owner(s).
Apparently, Mp3 Skull breached the protocol by rendering so many HD songs in Mp3 formats, with several record labels filing lawsuits. The brand reportedly paid one hundred and ten million dollars ($110 000 000) to IsoHunt and eighty million dollars ($80 000 000) to Hotfile.
The RIAA reported that Mp3Skull was complicit in a meshwork of pirated content using over one million URLs.
Later, the clampdown on the site began, resulting in Google taking the site off its Search Engine.
After a four-year lull, the operators put up another App on Google Play Store, although the ratings and user feedback are notably low. The new app seems to have a better UI than the previous one, though.
There is no piracy notice against the new site. So, you can use it to download any songs that you want. How does it work? See below
