And Another ways to download Youtube videos:
Freemake Video Downloader
Free (with caveats);
Freemake claims it can download video from over 10,000 sites; “Loved by 83 Million users,” it brags. With YouTube videos, it grabs things in any format, lets you save links, and downloads multiple videos at once. It also claims to be the fastest, grabbing a two-hour HD video in four minutes, but users can limit the speed if they’re on a throttled internet connection. And that price? For free, it’s a no-brainer, though you have to put up with advertisements. If you only want to grab music out of the videos you watch, it also offers the free Freemake YouTube to MP3 Boom.
4K Video Downloader
4K Video Downloader (and companion app 4K YouTube to MP3) is frequently updated and features clear download links; no ad traps here. It does what it advertises: grabs videos up to 4K in quality and downloads to plenty of formats—it will even grab subtitles. You can even use it to download an entire subscribed YouTube channel. The sites supported are more limited to the big names like YouTube, Vimeo, and Facebook, but that probably covers most of what you need.
