How to Find the Song Used in a YouTube Video

I have collected different methods and presented all of them here under different subheadings.

Method 1: Check the Video Carefully

Observing the video carefully can fetch you what you want. Most of the times, uploaders mention the audio used in the video on the description section itself.

All you need to do is open the video, explore the description and read the text. That’s it. Chances are you can solve the song in video chaos here itself.

Method 2: Listen to the Audio

Another method that doesn’t confuse you is to bring some job to your ears. Yeah, listen to the audio if you can understand the lyrics. Then, memorize or scribble down the first one or two lines.

Finally, open a browser tab and, google search for the same line. Boom! You will get the song before you right away.

Method 3: Look Down to the Video


Do you know what is available down the video?

YouTube has a helpful commenting system that can be a lifesaver in many situations. What I mean here is you can check out the comment section of the video, you want to find the song of. You can just press “Ctrl+F” key and search “song name”.

Chances are you can find a bunch of comments that mention the name of the song.

Method 4: Use Shazam

Have you heard of Shazam?

Shazam is a music identification lyrics discovering app service you can use for free. The 100 million downloads and 4.4 rating on the Play Store speak for the app itself.

We all have a smartphone today. Finding a person without a smartphone has become a tough task now. So, I hope anyone can use this app to identify the music.

First, you have to go to Play Store on your Android device. Enter Shazam into the search bar you see on top of the screen.

The topmost one you get, Shazam- Discover music is what we want. You can either tap on the install button right away or do it later from the app page after reading more about it.

Being a lightweight app, Shazam won’t take much time for the installation. Once it gets installed, open the app. Now, play the video, bring your phone near to the speaker of your computer and tap on the blue Shazam logo. That’s it. There you will have the details.

Method 5: Use (Discontinued)

The previous one I shared was using your Android smartphone. Here is a way to find the song used in a YouTube video directly from your computer using online tool.

Open your browser and enter into the address bar. You will get a new website now. In case you are lazy to type the text, click here.

You need to register for an account there, which will not take more than a couple of minutes. They won’t allow you to track the song unless you become a registered user.

When you finish with the registration, copy the video URL and paste into the given field. You will get the name of the song used in that particular video.

If you want to download the song, use Google to search for an appropriate phrase.

Method 6: Use MusicID

Are you an iOS user? Then I know you didn’t pay heed to my fourth method, did you?

That’s why I have researched a lot to find a service similar to Shazam for iPhone. Guess what? I have got one “MusicID“.

You can download their app from iTunes app store. But you have to pay about $3 to get your hands on the app. Though they have an Android app, Shazam is much better according to me.

After the app installation, you can play the video near your iPhone to identify it.

In all the cases, you will find a solution using any of the six methods given above. Still, I have two bonus methods for you that include no installations.

Method 7: Unleash the Power of Social Media

I hope you have a Twitter account. Did you notice the search button on top of the Twitter web page, didn’t you?

Just copy the YouTube video ID (not the YouTube video URL) from your browser’s address bar and, paste the same into the Twitter Search field. You will get at least a few tweets mentioning the video. Sometimes, these tweets contain the name of the song used in the video.

As you can see the video ID in above screenshot, that last random alphabets and numeric is call video ID on YouTube. The main reason behind picking only the YouTube video ID and not the whole YouTube video URL is that same video can have many different links as you may know YouTube has many publishers for the same video. But the video ID is always the same except in few shortURL services.

Method 8: Ask Your Friend

Sometimes, seeking help does the magic.

You have friends, right? Who doesn’t!

Just send the link to him/her over any social media channel and, ask for a help to identify the song used in the video.

Even if the person whom you asked doesn’t know the answer, he/she will seek help from their friends. Finally, you will get the correct song even if it takes a while.
