How to download videos from YouTube?
In fact, downloading a video from YouTube is easier than it sounds at first. Actually, this will not be difficult even for the most unprepared user of a personal computer. Well, let’s all in order.
YouTube is the most popular online video storage and streaming service in the world. It is on YouTube that contains the largest number of videos on the global Internet. The site ranks third in the world in terms of traffic after Google and Facebook. It is watched daily by millions of videos by users from all over the world. It is clear that in the midst of such an abundance of clips and videos, everyone will find something that they will certainly want to download to their computer so that they do not constantly have to go to the site to watch their favorite clip. But video hosting itself does not officially give the opportunity to download video directly to everyone. You can only download your own videos, and then if they are copyrighted and do not duplicate the content already available on the site. So, how can I download a video from YouTube if I really want to do it for some reason or circumstance.
As stated at the beginning of this article, fortunately this is not difficult. Because It has long been practiced by many people from all over the world.
It’s worth noting that there are a lot of ways to download videos from YouTube, you just need to choose the most suitable for you. By the way, when you watch a video on YouTube, you have already physically downloaded it to your computer! Yes, they have already downloaded it. “Then where is it?” – You will legitimately ask. Of course, I will answer this question. It is located in the temporary folder of your (default) system drive, where the browser itself is actually installed. Each browser has its own temporary folder. Just do not rush to rush to look for it right away. The thing is that the video has the format of temporary files and a completely different, systemic name. Therefore, finding it will not be so simple. However, it’s possible, just search for a file with a suitable size and then add the desired extension to it and try to run it, so you will probably find the file you need. To speed up the search, it is best to first clean the folder with the cache, so as not to rummage through numerous files. But this can easily be done using the appropriate software, more precisely using utilities for web browsers of the Internet. There are a fairly large number of different extensions (plug-ins) to all known browsers that help to pull the video out of the cache and save it to the selected directory of the hard disk in the desired format.
The most popular such extension is DownloadHelper (download assistant), which first appeared for the Mozilla Firefox browser. After his numerous clones appeared with similar names for all other browsers. But let’s not spray on all the existing download assistants and focus on DownloadHelper for Firefox.
So, download this extension and install it in your browser. After that, restart the firefox web browser and after that, a small button with three balls will appear to the left of the address bar. This is Download Helper, usually on a page where it is possible that something to download balls will become colored and animated. Thus, we go to the YouTube site and start watching the video you want to download the video, then click on the Dh button and from the list select this video and its quality. Next, specify the directory to save and that’s it – the video upload has begun. Also, right through this extension, you can quickly convert video to any available format if you wish.
By the way, in the same way you can download videos and music from any other site including RuTube, VK, Odnoklassniki and other popular services.
Another way to download videos from YouTube is to use online download services, which usually need to specify the URL of the video and after that you will be asked to download it to your computer. There are a lot of similar services, they appear and disappear every day, so that it makes no sense to dwell on something special.

An equally well-known way to download videos from YouTube is to use various software for the PC. As a rule, such programs allow you to access the site directly from your interface, where there are buttons for quickly downloading your favorite video. There are also a lot of programs that allow this to be done and they are easily searched, so I don’t see the point of highlighting any particular one.
