Quickly create ringtones on Windows Phone from YouTube

YouRang

Early this morning we reported on the mini song "Metro" by Matt Oglesby created on nothing but free Windows Phones apps. The tune has a chill yet vibrant feel to it and as a few of you noticed in comments, it would make a solid ringtone on your device.

While there are browser plugins that will easily rip YouTube audio and convert it to an MP3, there is a much easier way to do it directly on Windows Phone. The free app YouRang by Red Pegasus Media allows you to search YouTube, bring up the video in a small window and then by using pre-selected arrows, you can edit the section you want for a ringtone on your phone.

The app is free, beautiful and super simple to use. It maintains the full audio quality, volume and lets you "max out" the length of the ringtone according to Microsoft's specifications. In short, there's no reason not to get it even if you just want "Metro" for your ringer (just search for 'Metro' - Track Created...).

Pick up YouRang for free here in the Windows Phone Marketplace. [Edit: For those outside certain regions, stay tuned. The developer has submitted an update for other regions and it should be available soon]

Not available in aus!

Wyn6 says:

I contacted the developer and he has submitted it to all other markets and it should be availaible in the next day or so.

lippidp says:

I have two reasons why not to install:

1. Requires access to owner identity
2. Requires access to music and video library

Why does it need this access?

Kadcidxa says:

to save the audio? who cares...
 
installing. really kool idea.

1. Owner Identity is not your name, it's a unique Live ID generated number but contatins no personal information

2. Should be "duh" how else are you going to save an audio file as a ringtone to your deivce?

lippidp says:

I guess I just trust these apps anymore after Google and Apple were caught allowing address books and photos to be uploaded to third parties. "Access" to me means the ability to save, but also to take. I think MS need to provide more details on these definitions. I know I'm the only one who cares based on millions of android phones sold and used every day, but I do care.

agm353 says:

You might as well not own a smartphone then. Or practically any electronic device. Good luck reverting back to the dark ages!

lippidp says:

My smartphone is primarily a business tool, not a toy. It is useful to me as such without frivolous "apps" such as these.

Angkorthom says:

Who cares, this app is the shit! Awesome easy and easy to use. IPhone makes it so difficult this so simple.

RenatoFontes says:

Not available in Mexico u_u

Read above, it's being updated for rest of the world.

mccasive says:

I've had it for 2 days and it's freaking awesome. It beats them all.

CJ Thunder says:

Very nice, wish the end cut was easier to make without having to listen to the whole tune.

Jazmac says:

I downloaded this a couple weeks ago and just tried it today. Works great. Props to the developers on this one.

danielm298 says:

man!!! this is really cool!!!!

smontoya2 says:

Best WP Ringtone App Ever!!!!!!! Great job RPM!!!!!

kawatwo says:

This is amazing. Good work.

sdreamer says:

Reminds me of the old Nokia phones back then where you could compose your own ringtones. Wonder if Nokia has anything like that in the pipelines for Windows Phone 7.

lippidp says:

I'd forgotten about that! Those were the days...

IsTrooper2 says:

Not available in Singapore too :(

Dannay says:

Is it me but when I went to YouTube on ie I am suddenly getting a message saying we can't play this on your phone to every video I click? It used to work like wtf :S

smontoya2 says:

Check your IE settings & allow cookies on your phone. Happened to me & that fixed the problem.

Sarang68 says:

Still not available in India. Patience is golden.

foxibs says:

Good work, amazing app.

markiz says:

Awesome app. One less thing i need my computer for.

I actually met the developer of this app at the 'Behind The Live Tiles'  on the 3rd (Dallas). It's good to see him getting a shot out on WPCentral.  

iampoz says:

Now available to download in Australia

KumarNix says:

It's available in India now , just downloaded it.
I see a lot of people downloaded and tried the app and commented bout it in here , well that's good . Why not rate the app and post the comments in marketplace as well ?
This will be helpful for the people who search for apps on marketplace and of course for the developer as well.

just a thought!

Wyn6 says:

The app is now available to all markets that can access YouTube.
