3 Ways To Download Video From Youtube

Online Downloading Services

This procedure is the standard method and quite easy too. In order to follow this method, you need an online file service for converting files. There are many of these software available over the internet. You can search for them and choose what looks like the best one to you. They help you download movies or videos from YouTube and convert them into a file format that is compatible with your iPhone.

Many of these tools are extremely easy to use and help you convert videos in no time. For example, using Zamzar software, you just have to enter the URL of the video and choose the format you want the video to be converted into. Next, it asks you to enter your email address. Once you’ve entered your email address, just click ‘Convert’ and that is it! You will get an email that contains the link from where you can download the converted video.

Download the converted video and transfer it in your phone. Other online services follow the same pattern more or less. The only requirements is an internet connection. You can use this method no matter which OS your computer contains. Some people do not prefer this long method and want to follow it entirely on their phones – this can be done as well. Use your browser to access any of these online services and save the videos directly to your phone.

Once you have the link of a video, you will need a third party file manager to download the videos to your iPhone. Safari doesn’t allow you to download the videos from other websites. One good example is the File master which is absolutely free of cost and allows you to download videos from different websites such as YouTube, Dailymotion, Vimeo and Vevo. Here’s how you can download the videos using File master on your iPhone.

Download and install the File Master app from the iTunes Store, click here to get the latest version of the application.

Using Desktop Software

The second method of saving YouTube videos is by using desktop software such as Tooble, iSkysoft iTube Studio and MacTubes. They are free and contain features that help you convert and download videos without any hassle. These applications were especially built so that users can download videos from YouTube, convert them and then transfer to iPad, iPod or iPhone.

Using Apps

The previous two methods may seem very hectic to you because they require you to use your computer first. You may be wondering if there’s actually any way to download YouTube videos on the phone directly. Perhaps the easiest method is to use apps that are available in the App store.

There are numerous video conversion apps available that get the job done. Some of the most popular apps include iDownloader, Best Video Downloader, Video Downloader, Instatube and ProTube for YouTube. While all of them have their own pros and cons, they fulfill the task and have user-friendly interfaces that make the work easier. They allow you to search for videos on YouTube and choose the download option then and there. Most of the programs will even let you download the videos in the high quality.

Update: Recently, most of the applications from the Appstore have been removed due to copyright issues. However, if you have jailbroken iPhone, you can get different Cydia Applications to download the YouTube videos without any problem.
