Do you want to know how to download videos from YouTube? If so, you aren’t alone. Anyone who spends any time at YouTube eventually stumbles upon a video they want to save for viewing even when they don’t have access to the video sharing site. And the truth is that it isn’t as hard as you might think. In fact, there are countless web-based services that can help you download videos from YouTube as quickly and easily as possible. And this is how you do it.
You will need:
- You Tube Web Downloader
- Find a Web-Based Video Downloading Service. There are plenty of them out there, so they aren’t hard to find. KeepVid is one that is very popular. But, if you want some alternatives, go to Google (or another search engine of your choosing) and type “YouTube web downloader” into the search box. Pick the site that looks the most promising. Most of these services will allow you to download videos from YouTube without registration.
- Serf to the Video You Want to Save. After opening the video you want to save in your browser, highlight and save its web address. Now return to the video downloading site and paste that web address into the appropriate text field.
- Download Your Video. Often, before you can go on, you will be required to take some kind of CAPTCHA test. (To prove you are human.) After that, press “submit” or “enter.” This will retrieve the video you want to download. After a few seconds (or moments, depending on how fast your Internet connection is) you will often be presented with a download page. Click where instructed. A window will soon pop up that will allow you to save the video to your computer.
There are many ways to download videos from YouTube, including desktop applications (which usually require installation) and browser extension. But if you want a method that is fast, easy, and doesn’t require you to install something new on your computer, Web-based video downloading services might be just what you are looking for.
