Many internet sites are offering their services to allow people to save on their computers the YouTube videos they want. They work mainly on the same principle.

2 – Then, go to KeepVid.
3 – Paste the link of your video into the bar provided and click Download.
4 – KeepVid offers multiple download formats. For videos, it is best to choose a MP4 format. If you want to save only the audio of the video, choose the MP3 format.
5 – right click on the link of the format you prefer and select Save as. A window to your computer will open. It only remains for you to do is click on Save and your video will be downloaded to your hard drive, in your Download folder.
Other websites offer a similar service, such as Clipconverter.
1 – Paste the URL of the video you want to download in the toolbar at the record and then click Continue. Close pop-up windows that open (these are ads).
2 – Choose the video format you prefer (MP4, AVI, MOV..) and then click on Start !.
3 – Finally, click Tdownload and the video will save to your Downloads folder.
