The other day I stumbled on an interesting, mind-blowing song and wanted to have it on my device in case I run out of data whenever I want to watch it again, but there was no option on Youtube that says “download on your device” or something close. I tried every option but it proved abortive until I came to realize how to download from Youtube with ease.
You should know that it is illegal to download from Youtube using a thir-party app, as it is against Youtube’s terms of service, which states that “you are only able to stream videos directly from its servers” Downloading Youtube videos also opens you up to potential copyright infringement unless you have permission from the copywriter holder. The issue of copyright is a big one in developed countries; they do not joke with it a bit. If found guilty, could land you a law suit and fine of over $10, 000.
With the above being established, Youtube offers some ways to download from its web or app platform.
The simplest way to download from Youtube web, not App( you could toggle on “watch later” on the App to enable you view videos in offline mode):
Normally a Youtube link is always like http://www.m.youtube.com/watch?v=BW_DYhv-FTU
To download this video, all you need to do is edit the link and add “ss” just like we have it down here.
Technically, all you are editing or deleting from “http://www.m.youtube.com/watch?v=BW_DYhv-FTU” is “http://www.m.” while you insert “ss” immediately before “youtube”
Enjoy your downloads and do not be caught.
