Are you looking for an easy way to download youtube videos? When I say download, I mean saving it to your memory card or internal storage forever.
YouTube is a website that allows you to stream videos online but doesn’t give you an option to download.
The YouTube app lets you download videos, but you can only watch the videos by using their app.
You can not view downloaded videos with any other app or share the downloaded video to anyone.
In this post, I’m going to share two ways you can download Youtube videos on your device that can be watched through any app and also shared with any other person or device.
Without further ado, Let’s get right into it.
Download Youtube videos with your browser.
This is a fairly long method but nonetheless gets the job done.
You copy the link of the video, paste it in your browser, make some adjustments to the link, choose your download quality, then you download.
Let me break it down into more detailed explanations:
1. Go the Youtube app or website and select the video you want
Choose the video you would like to download, click on the share icon/button, then press “copy link”.
If you are viewing youtube from your browser, just skip to number 2.
2. Paste the link in your browser
Paste the link in your browser then load the video.
Once it loads, go to the URL ( link ) tab, clear everything before the “youtube” text and replace with “ss” then press “enter” ( load the newly edited link ).
3. Choose your preferred download quality
when you complete step number two, you will be redirected to a website with your video ready for download ( savefrom.net ).
Choose your preferred download quality then press download, and that is all.
Note: Some browsers like chrome might just play the video in the browser. just click on the 3-dotted button and press download. It would start downloading right away.
Download youtube videos with the savefrom.net app(Download Helper)
Unlike the above method, this one gets things done a little bit faster.
You need to have their app (Download Helper) installed, which will take you straight to the download page.
You can change your download preferrence later in the apps setting, because it downloads the video instantly for you.
1. Download the savefrom.net app(Download Helper) and allow access to file storage
Go to savefrom.net, scroll down then click on the “SaveFrom.Net App for Android” or click the button below to download savefrom.net for your android device.
It will then take you to the Downlaod page.
After downloading, install the app.
After the above, open Download Helper and allow access to phone media and file storage.
2. Go to the Youtube video you want to download
Go to the youtube app or website. Search for the video you want to download then click share.
If you scroll down, you will see “Download Helper”. Click on it, it will then automatically take you to the download page.
After you complete the above method it’ll take you directly to the download page inside the Download helper app.
Click on the download button and that’s all.
You can later access your downloaded videos from the “Downloads” section.
The two methods use the same website to run the same task. But as you can see, the second method is actually faster and less stressful.
