There are so many amazing movies & trailers, blogs & how-tos, music clips & funny shows available in the network — you will never have enough time to watch them all. In case you want to find interesting information, see the unboxing process, get advice or just relax, YouTube.com is a perfect landing page.
However, if you need to download video, YouTube — free online platform with millions of users — totally fails. It is frustrating but no worries, we have a fix for this misunderstanding. Let’s see what you should be done.
How to download something from the biggest video platform?
There are a few ways to get the needed file. Most of them may be divided into two groups: the one that require additional browser tabs opened and the one that works on page directly. Let’s see which method is more convenient.
Use page link
This is a common way to download video from YouTube. Copy a link to the page where you found it and paste it to third-party website or software. Then adjust required settings like quality or some other similar parameters and click the button to start. Seems to be pretty easy and fast, but let’s see the advantages and disadvantages of this method closely.
Most of the tools are provided for free
Only a link is required to get what you need
Websites may be used instead of the software
Several unpleasant cons
You need to open another window for the software
You need to switch to another tab for the website
There are too many explicit parameters to adjust
Use a special extension
And now let’s switch to another way of downloading a video — YouTube Downloader app. This is a tiny piece of software that activates an extension in browser and embeds a special button to each page of the website. The button activates an instant action and let’s you receive the chosen file in the most comfortable way.
The highest quality is guaranteed
No need to open other applications or visit suspicious sites
Nothing needs to be adjusted — works in a single click
Totally free-to-use service without hidden payments or ads
