YouTube has been around for slightly more than 8 years since its creation in February 2005 by three former employees of PayPal. Believe it or not, we still get asked this question…
How do I download YouTube videos onto my computer?
But then again, if you are reading this tutorial on how to download YouTube videos, I guess you could believe it. This is a short tutorial how you can download YouTube videos to your computer. We have listed two methods, 1 of which is free and the other requires a software purchase.
You basically copy and paste the YouTube URL into the URL text field of either savevid.com or keepvid.com then click the Download or Submit button. Once done correctly, a new window should appear with the download links. Simple?
This method requires that you purchase a software called Internet Download Manager. This is our method of choice, mainly because we already have IDM installed. IDM is mainly a download accelerator that\’s able to download YouTube videos. IDM is pretty important to us because we\’re download junkies… that and we\’re on the quest to download the Internet…
When watching YouTube, you would be presented by a Download video from this page button. Upon clicking that button, you will be able to download the YouTube video. IDM would set you back about $24.95 as there\’s an offer going on now, but its worth the money for the product that you get.
So there you have it. Two methods to download YouTube videos. Enjoy!
