YouTube is the largest database of videos that have ever existed. With over a billion videos accessible to everyone for free on YouTube, there is definitely no doubt that you would want to get some of them downloaded on your local device.
YouTube does not give you this opportunity as it will be unethical to do so. The closest they have done in the past is to allow you save some videos still on the YouTube system, the only advantage of this is that you will be able to watch this videos without having to put on your mobile data.
So today I am going to show you how you can download videos from YouTube into your phone gallery.
To do this, we will be using two things
Apps you need to download a video from youtube
- Appe : you can download this app from Google playstore, it’s free. It’s a app that helps you download videos from any popular video streaming website. However, it doesn’t allow you to download videos from sites with strict copyright such as Netflix and iroko Tv.
- Playit : this is a video player and it is needed because most of the videos downloaded using vidmate can’t be played by all media players. Playit on the other hand can play any video at all. It supports all format.
Steps to download a video from youtube
When you got this app downloaded and installed on your mobile device, you would want to ensure that your device has sufficient storage space as some YouTube videos may actually be larger than you think.
Once all that is set, go to the YouTube official website and search for the video you want to download. I would advise you use the chrome browser for this purpose.
Once you see the video, hold on it and it was open a dialogue, click on copy link.
Once you couch on copy link, head straight to the vidmate app you downloaded earlier, paste the link you copied on the search box above (you will see the search box after you have launched the app).
Give it some minutes and it will display the video you wish to download.
Under the video you would see various options display the various video qualities available for download.
The very first option is available an audio format. This would be very beneficial if all you need is the sound track.
Once you have mad up your mind click download and that’s all.
After the download process is completed, check if your local video player can play the video, if no, check the other video player we downloaded earlier called playit. It will surely be able to play the video.
