You are scrolling through YouTube as usual when you come across a video that you have been searching forever. And now you wish to download it on your phone. It must be easy since technology has advanced so much over the years, right? Wrong. YouTube doesn't allow its users to download all the videos on their phones; all you are allowed to do is share their links.
While few of the YouTube videos can be downloaded and seen offline, the majority of the high-quality enjoyable videos are off-limits to the users. And as primitive as that sounds, it's true and not changing anytime soon. That's when video downloaders come to your rescue.
