How to download YouTube videos for offline viewing

YouTube is a popular platform that many internet users turn to. YouTube is without any doubt the largest library of video content anywhere in the world. Many people rely on this app to meet their daily requirements because of the huge amount of data. You can find videos from educational institutions, recipe ideas, everyday problem solving and many other useful information. Although internet connectivity has improved in the last decade, it still isn’t completely free or available. It is ideal to download the videos for later viewing in such situations.

Third-party sites may allow you to save the video and view it later. These methods are a bit of a gray area. It is possible to be protected if the video is not downloaded and shared as your own property, or used commercially.

This is how you download video and view it in the YouTube app:

Open the YouTube App on your smartphone

Search the video that you wish to save for offline viewing

Once you have reached the video, it will start playing. There is a button down that can be used for downloading it.

After tapping it, you’ll be able to choose the quality and amount of data that the download will take.

Normal users might only be able to choose between low-quality downloads (144p and 360p).

YouTube Premium Members will be able to download FullHD videos or in HD resolution.

Once you have chosen your choice, click it to start the download

The speed of your internet connection and the quality the video are downloading may affect the time it takes to download the file.

Once the upload is complete you can access the video library through the streaming service.

The videos are available for 29 days in the library without Internet access

Once the period ends, you can either download it again (or watch it online).

The method for downloading videos doesn’t infringe any rights, and users are safe from legal gray areas. The videos will not appear in the phone’s gallery. To view the downloaded videos, you will have to first open YouTube and then go to the library.
