You like something but you do not know how to download (films, movies and so on) it from YouTube? With free downloading sites at your service, this cannot be easier. You can even download into various qualities and formats from audio files (mp3) to videos - this is applicable to other sites as well. This article helps you to find the answers.
Use an online service
What is it?
There is a variety of sites that allow you to download a video from YouTube or from other sites in various formats such as HD/HQ (high definition/high quality), mp4, FLV, egg (for mobile phones), mp3 (audio only) and so on, for free. You can even download simultaneously. Plus, there is no need to sign up for an account.
Supported online video sites
Bear in mind that not all streaming video sites are supported by all downloading sites. Here is a list of the sites which are supported by some of the latter:
12. Game Trailers
18. Funny or die
Watch streaming videos for free
Saving YouTube videos is possible. Some downloading sites allow you to watch streaming videos online for free. These are videos that other users have downloaded through the sites. Of course, you can download the same videos if you want.
See the statistics
Additionally, you can see statistics such as the latest downloads, the top
50 downloads and so on. You may be able to see the latest downloads in real-time in terms of total downloads. You may also get to see the last download that occurred.
How to download YouTube videos
1. On Youtube, click on 'share' and get the video URL. Highlight the link of the video and right click to select 'copy'. 2. On the downloading site, right click to 'paste' the link in the bar provided. 3. Select the format that you desire. 4. Click to download/save.
Use a software programme
You can purchase a software programme and install it into your computer in order to save online videos. However, with the availability of free downloading sites, this step may not be worth it.
