Downloading and watching YouTube videos is very convenient because it streams very fast and also the file size is small. For a YouTube premium subscriber downloading videos is very easy. The caveat emptor is that you can download using only the official YouTube website or YouTube gaming apps. This means that you cannot download YouTube videos to your computer and you can do it only on a phone or tablet.
To download, simply open on the YouTube app on your device and lookup the video that you wish to download. If you see a ‘Download’ icon on the video page, tap it and choose the video quality you want download. It is as simple as that.
After the video is downloaded you will see a blue tick in place of the download icon. By tapping the blue tick, you can also remove the video from your device. You will find all the downloaded videos in the library under the account tab.
Download videos using web browser
If you want to download YouTube videos to your computer directly, you can use a web browser to do that. Certain web browsers come with a video downloader plugin and you can use these plugins to download. However, the easier way to download is to copy and paste the URL of the download into the website, like Video Downloadr, and you will be able to save the video in your desired format for later.
There are some external resources to download as well but they only work for some time. They tend to shut down or blocked after some time and are not reliable. Another thing about these external websites is the annoying adverts and also the associated dangers of downloading malware and virus.
There are some things to keep in mind as well. Not all videos can be downloaded as some are copyrighted and secured.
