Step 1: Find the YouTube Song You Want to Use
First, you need to find the song you want to use as your ringtone on YouTube. Once you have found the song, copy the URL of the video.
Step 2: Convert the YouTube Song to MP3
Next, you need to convert the YouTube song to an MP3 file. There are several websites that allow you to do this, such as OnlineVideoConverter or Y2Mate. Simply paste the YouTube URL into the converter, select MP3 as the output format, and convert the file.
Step 3: Import the MP3 File into iTunes
After converting the YouTube song to an MP3 file, you need to import it into iTunes. Open iTunes and go to File > Add File to Library. Select the MP3 file you just downloaded and click Open.
Step 4: Edit the Song Length
Once the song is imported into iTunes, you need to edit its length to make it a ringtone. Right-click on the song and select Get Info. Go to the Options tab and set the start and stop time of the song to the length of the ringtone you want. It should be no longer than 30 seconds.
Step 5: Create AAC Version
After editing the song length, you need to create an AAC version of the song. Right-click on the song and select Create AAC Version. This will create a shortened version of the song that will be used as your ringtone.
Step 6: Rename the File and Change the Extension
Once the AAC version of the song is created, you need to rename the file and change its extension. Right-click on the AAC version of the song and select Show in Finder. Rename the file to whatever you want and change the extension from .m4a to .m4r.
Step 7: Add the Ringtone to Your iPhone
Finally, you need to add the ringtone to your iPhone. Connect your iPhone to your computer and open iTunes. Drag the .m4r file to the Tones section of your iPhone in iTunes. Sync your iPhone and your new ringtone will be added to your device.
