Do you want to add the vinyl effect crackle to any youtube video? Well I wanted this so I created a free and simple tool called Vinyl Tube, check it out!

That distinct vinyl crackle sound creates such a nostalgic feeling. In our opinion most music is improved if this was added. But sadly not all music is available on vinyl records.

For this reason I created Vinyl Tube. With this web application you can listen to any YouTube video with an added vinyl effect. When you open Vinyl Tube in your browser you’ll be able to use the search bar to find any Youtube video. You can also add the ?v= parameter from YouTube after the URL to the application, which will also work. This way you can easily share a specific YouTube video with the vinyl crackle effect, like this. You’re also able to tweak the vinyl effect volume.

Currently it’s very simplistic, but I’m planning on adding more functions over time. This is my current to-do list:

  1. Equalizer, for adjusting frequencies.
  2. Scratchable turntable, just for fun.
  3. Auto-replay.
  4. Playlists.
  5. Integrated social media sharing.

If you can think of any cool ideas for this tool then please let me know in the comments below this post. If you think this is a cool idea then also let me know. Just to keep me motivated!

I’m developing it myself. I’m using the React framework with simple Material UI components at the moment. Nothing fancy yet. I’m hosting it on an Microsoft Azure App Service, which is surprisingly easy to work with. If you’re interested in more technicalities you can also contact me through the comments.

I also want to point out that this application will always be available for free. Finally I’d like to point you to my Reviews, Top Lists & Educational articles, if you’re interested in reading about record players!
