How to Download YouTube Videos

Have you ever found yourself wanting to download a YouTube video so you can watch it offline or to capture the music into an MP3 file? Well, it’s actually a piece of cake to do!

There's no shortage of sites that can manage this task, but my personal favorite is a site called because it's super fast and simple to use.

All you have to do is paste in the link of the Youtube video you want to download to get started.

If, for instance, you only want the audio, you simply choose the sound quality you want and then click the download button.

If you want the complete video file, you just choose which of the video resolutions you want with the lowest ones being the smallest then click the download button.

Once the audio or video file is downloaded, you can watch it on your computer or transfer it to your mobile devices to watch or listen wherever you want.

This can be especially helpful if you’re about to go on a long road trip with young children because it’s a quick way to download lots of content that’ll keep them occupied for free without an Internet connection!
