YouTube is the best at what it does or provides. No other application/service has the potential to outbid or overdo what YouTube has done so far. Although, there are still things that people want from YouTube, like letting them save/download videos to watch them later but not possible. So,
- Are you also looking to download a video?
- Is streaming your favorite videos again and again on YouTube becoming a burden for your limited data?
If yes is your answer, then we might be able to help you. Today, we will show you two of the easiest ways to download any video from YouTube. One will allow you to download videos directly without asking you to download any app on your desktop, the other one will provide you with a lot of great options to choose from. So, let’s get started without any more delay.
How to download YouTube videos?
There are thousands of options available on the internet when you search for downloading YouTube videos but it isn’t worth wasting your time to go through every option and doing every deed asked still returning empty-handed every time. So, we did the hard work for you and came up with authentic and working third-party apps and services that will really let you download any video from YouTube.
The first way is without downloading any third-party app on your desktop. You just need to follow these steps:
1 Open the YouTube.
The first step is to open YouTube and find the video you want to download. Now, click on the video and open it.
2 Copy the URL.
From the URL bar, copy the URL of the video.
3 Visit the savefrom.net site.
Now, go to the savefrom.net website by clicking the link.
When you reach the website, the first thing you will need to do is paste the URL in the required box.
After pasting the URL, click on the "Download" button next to the box.
4 Click on the download button.
Your video will be displayed now. If this video is the one you wish to download then, click on the Download button. Your video will start downloading.
However, if you wish to change the format of the video or looking to download only the mp3, then you have to add an extension to your browser. Choose the format and hit download.
A new pop-up window will open asking you to add an extension to your browser. Just click on the "Accept and continue" option and you will get the option to download the video in the desired format after the extension is added.
There is another way that can skip all these steps and will directly let you download the video. You just need to put "ss" in the URL of the video and hit "Enter".
For Example: let the URL of the video that you wish to download is something like https://www.youtube.com/watch?=#####.
Just click on the URL and edit it. You have to put "ss" just in front of the youtube like shown in the image below.
Hit enter and it will directly take you to the page where you get to download the video.
The limitation of this way is that it doesn’t provide you many options. You have to download the videos according to the site preferences. If you wish to download videos with your preferences, then this next way is for you.
Downloading a third-party app:
This is another way in which you will get a lot of options regarding your video download. You get to choose how you want to download the video but first, you will need to download a third-party app on your device in order to download videos.
1 Visit freemake.com.
Go to freemake.com by clicking this link and click on the "Free Download" link to download the app.
2 Open YouTube and copy URL.
In the mean-time when the app is being installed on your device, you can go to YouTube and copy the URL of the video you want to download.
3 Open app and Paste URL.
After successful installation of the app, launch it. You will find the "Paste URL" option. Click on it and it will itself copy the URL from your clipboard.
If you wish to download it in some other format or some other place, you get the option of doing so at the bottom.
4 Click on the "Download" button.
You can choose the quality of the video here and which folder you want to download this video to. Click on the "Download" button when you are done and your video will start downloading.
