By Joakim Kling | Last Update:

No matter it is a trending YouTube video, a TikTok video or a recorded remix, or a video of a live DJ Battle, the plain steps to turn a video into a ringtone on iPhone can be boiled down to three: Step 1. Download the video online; Step 2. Convert the video to MP3 audio; Step 3. Set the audio as an iPhone ringtone. And here we tell you how to accomplish those 3 steps one by one.

Hot viral videos and songs are boosting every day and surely there will be one or two of them that catch your ear like an earworm. From Wellman duets to Lubalin's Internet Drama Series to Macklemore's Trump's Over freestyle, to TikTok Silhouette Challenge Songs - Paul Anka's "Put your head on my shoulder" and "Streets" by Doja Cat, who wouldn't want to make those great songs flow in their daily life? And here's how to make ringtone from video file on iPhone.

Step 1: Download the Online Video

While TikTok allows for the direct download of a video, for other online video-sharing sites, you cannot directly get the videos off-site but there are plenty of tools to help you download the likes of YouTube music videos, Facebook videos, Twitter videos, etc. Online download sites like and can cover your basic need of a couple of videos to MP3 downloads. All you need to do is to input the video link to the URL box and click the download button to get audio directly.

While is mainly for YouTube videos, is a great place to extract the audio from a TikTok video link.

Procedure 1: Copy and input the TikTok video URL to the download box;

Procedure 2: Tap the button to download the MP3 audio version.

However, for a stable download of a pile of videos, we'd recommend free tools like 5KPlayer. It empowers you to download the M4a audio directly or convert it to MP3 right after the download. We'd also recommend VideoProc, more of a converter with basic video editing features, which lets you download and convert the video to almost any format you prefer.

Procedure 1: Copy and paste the URL into the URL box of 5KPlayer on the YouTube download Panel;

Procedure 2: Click the analysis button and wait for the software to parse the info;

Procedure 3: Click the download button to save the video locally;

When you can download a video, try not to record it. Since the quality of the recorded version can be far less appealing to the ears than the converted ones. No matter how perfect a silent environment you might create, an accident can happen and you might still end up recording some unwanted sounds in the audio.

Step 2. Covert the Video to MP3 Audio

In addition to 5KPlayer, the online converter tools are also trustworthy companions. Some allow you to download and convert the video altogether - by inputting the video URL, you can choose to download only the audio part of the video in MP3 format. However, to make piles of local videos as your ringtone/alarm on your iPhone, you may need offline converter tools without uploading all of those videos online.
