YouTube allows you to watch the videos for free, but that does not mean that you have access to them if you are online. Youtube is usually protective of its videos because of copyright issues, but that does not mean that there aren’t any solutions for creating a backup of your own.
There are numerous programs that will allow you to download YouTube videos to your computer, and you can find many of them available for free. There are some minor setbacks if you choose the free versions, but you can always upgrade and get more features. Here are the best YouTube downloaders:
- Free YouTube Download
Its name says it all. This downloader will get you any YouTube video and all you have to do is paste its URL. It also has an Auto Download option which should help you get your videos automatically.
Free YouTube Download also allows you to download multiple videos at once and you can also convert to other formats such as MP4, AVI and MKV. Other formats should be available as well, depending on the quality of the video.
- Clip Grab
Clip Grab is another alternative that will allow you to download YouTube videos. You will be also asked if you want a ByteFence and Yahoo software, but you can easily say no to that.
Clip Grab also comes with a clipboard monitor that should offer to download any URL that was copied by you. Clip Grab also comes with a search bar on YouTube so that you won’t need to use your browser in order to find the video you want.
- aTube Catcher
Not only that aTube Catcher works for YouTube, but it will also allow you to download videos from other websites. After you download a video you can also convert to various formats. This downloader also allows you to video merge, disc burn and even record any video that is on-screen.
However, you will have to be careful during installation, and deny the other apps that are offered to you. Press cancel when you are offered the first app and Decline for the second app. From that point, everything should work smoothly.
- 4K Video Downloader
This is a great option since it is incredibly versatile. For example, this tool does not have any ads and it can be customised any way you want. 4K Video Downloader can be used for videos and playlists as well. However, the playlist should not have more than 24 videos.
In order to download a video, all you have to do is copy the URL and then paste it. You will be able to select the format of your output, as well as its quality and the location.
Another advantage is the fact that it has support for 360-degrees and 3D. If you want more features, such as downloading longer playlists or playlists that have captions you will need to buy a key. A lifetime license for three PCs will cost you $10.
- Any Video Converter Free
This YouTube converter comes with many advantages especially since it is free. You can choose various video formats for your video and this downloader also has a video editor built into it. With it, you can add effects such as colour adjustments, you can crop a video, or you can add text over it.
Again, you should be careful during installation since you do not want ByteFence and Yahoo software. There is one disadvantage as well. The free version of this program will allow you to download only a single video at a time.
