YouTube Tweaks – How To Download Videos


Surely you have gathered a Youtube videos list. Sometimes you prefer to have videos saved on your computer for those times when you do not have an internet connection or on your phone to view them later without data consumption. Is this legal? No, it is not permitted under Youtube policies. And yet it is practiced to downloading videos, even if online video platforms do everything possible to prevent this, including Youtube.

There are three methods by which you can download your favorite videos from YouTube. First you can download videos directly to your phone by using an application. Another method would be to use some sites which can convert and download videos. The third method involves the installation of some PC applications.

The first method is suitable for very patient people. The applications for downloading YouTube videos are available with loads of advertisements and is almost impossible to download a free video without accidentally click on at least one advertisement. Which is very annoying. Another disadvantage is that it requires performing several steps in order to get to the expected download stage. Therefore I will not recommend any applications of this kind.

A less burdensome method is to use downloads sites. There are many sites available for the job. One of them is ClipConverter, which can convert videos depending on your preferences (AVI, MP4, 3GP and MOV). All you have to do is copy the video’s link and paste it in the designated space, and after completing the conversion in the chosen format, just download the video. Other similar sites are CatchVideo or KeepVid.

The simplest method of saving videos seems to be installing a program that only requires copying the video link. Another benefit is access to more complex settings and here I mean the format, resolution, and even the sound of the video. I recommended Free Studio, as a program with many options available. And if you want to download an entire playlist, Freemake Video Downloader can be used.

Airy is one of the best Mac YouTube downloaders with support of playlist and channel downloading.
