How to download a YouTube video on your PC

-

When it comes to downloading YouTube videos, you have different ways at your disposal. In this tutorial we will tell you step by step how to download YouTube videos to your computer quickly and without complications.

There are many users who wonder how to download YouTube videos. If this is your case, the answer is very simple: you just have to copy and paste the link of the video that you would like to download, enter it in any of the pages that we show you below and download it directly to your device. 

With this simple formula and a lot of patience you could download the entire YouTube.

Due to copyright issues, the streaming video platform has never allowed video files to be downloaded natively, it has always been limited to viewing. 

Until recently, it was only possible to view the videos if you had an Internet connection, although with the arrival of YouTube Premium things changed and you can view the content offline, after paying a monthly subscription.

If you don’t want to pay to watch YouTube videos offline, there are pages to download them that allow you to choose in detail how you want to download them: you can configure both the resolution (from the lowest so that the file takes up little space, up to Full HD , also going through 4K) as the extension (MP4, AVI, 3GP and even MP3, if you want to convert it into an audio file).

Is it legal to download YouTube videos?

Downloading videos from YouTube is neither legal nor illegal, at least officially, it is in a middle ground between legality and illegality.

Google clearly prohibits in its Terms and Conditions of Use the downloading of videos from its platform  and points out that the contents it houses are not made to be downloaded: it only allows reproduction on its platform. But many download sites have been around for years, and it’s not like the company has done much to bring them down.

Despite the fact that some pages that are clearly focused on downloading music from YouTube have closed in recent years, there are still many others that are still perfectly functional. And they are worth both for the mobile and for the computer.

Why are there no applications to download YouTube on Google Play?

As we are going to see with the examples that we are going to show you, the truth is that in Google Play the situation is different from the pages. The company decided a long time ago to erase any trace of the applications that allowed downloading the videos from its streaming platform. If you search, for example, for “download youtube videos” apps, you will see that no results are shown.

It is clear that many of the applications that have disappeared from Google Play are still available as APKs on the web, but is it really worth taking the risk of downloading an installable file that may be infected?

ClipConverter

ClipConverter  is the first tool that we are going to show you. It is one of the best known and used for many years. 

Despite the very old design of the page, it still works and the download process is extremely simple:

  • Enter YouTube.com (or open the application on your mobile) and enter the video you want to download . In case you have already located it, go to the next point.
  • Copy the video URL . It’s a link in this format
  • From the browser it is as easy as copying the URL from the top bar, while from the application you must click on the Share option and then click on Copy link.
  • These steps that we have told you are going to be common to all the download websites that we are going to see.
  • Once you have the link copied, go to this page: clipconverter.cc.
  • In the first Multimedia address box , paste the link of the video that you have copied before and click on Continue
  • In the boxes below you can choose the resolution and format of the file that you are going to download, and once you have done so, click on the Download button.

With these simple steps you will have the video downloaded. You can play it whenever you want without the Internet or with a connection as it is one more file that you will have on your computer

From that moment you can copy, edit or reproduce it as much as you want.

YooDownload

Another website that is capable of downloading videos from YouTube and other popular websites such as Facebook, Twitter or Instagram is YooDownload.

The way to get those video files is extremely easy:

  • We go to YooDownload, copy the URL of the video that we want to download and click on Download.
  • You will realize that now, we can download in different video qualities and different types of files.
  • We choose the one we want by clicking on Download.

Youzik

Another case in which downloading YouTube videos is going to be an extremely simple task. Do not be fooled, although the web does not have a very successful interface, the truth is that it has all the capabilities that we have seen in the rest of the options.

The way to handle it is this:

  • We enter inside Youzik.
  • We copy the URL in the ability area for it and click on Search.
  • Then it lets us choose whether to download in MP4 or MP3. You already know that in this case we must choose video, so it touches MP4.
  • In the next window, just click on Download MP4 and it will automatically be downloaded to our hard drive. That easy.

Vidpaw

This is another website where we will be able to download the video we want in different qualities and not only in MP4, but also in MP3, if we only want the audio.

The way it works is similar to the previous options:

  • We enter VidPaw and put the URL in the area where you can write.
  • Next, we must click on Download.
  • We choose the quality in which we want to have it on the computer and then click on Download.
  • At that moment the video will be downloaded to your computer and you can start enjoying it.

Catch video

Another possibility is to enter the Catchvideo website and download the YouTube video that we want. Although it also has an application for it, we are going to focus on the web.

The steps to get the video that we like so much in our internal storage are the following:

  • We enter Catchvideo.
  • Then we write the URL of the video in the area enabled for it and immediately press Catch! 
  • Next, it will show us different image qualities and MP3 files to download.
  • We just choose the one we want and click on Download.
  • Automatically, it will go to the internal storage of our computer.

The official option of Google: YouTube Premium

There is one more option, and this is official: it is about YouTube Premium, YouTube’s subscription service. It allows you to download and play the videos without internet connection. It also offers you another series of advantages, such as the absence of ads, access to the YouTube Music Premium music service or to the platform’s exclusive original content, YouTube Originals.

The subscription price is 11.99 euros per month for the individual plan, but you have the possibility to try the service for free for 60 days through this link.

Now you will be able to download the YouTube videos that you like the most on your hard drive and enjoy them whenever you want, whether or not you have a connection. If you have tried them, which of all the websites did you like the most? Or have you chosen to purchase YouTube in its paid version? Tell us on our social networks.
