Curated via Twitter from Mashable’s twitter account….

Note that YouTube Premium is probably your best bet if you must download videos on your phone; there are third-party services that promise this functionality, but I haven’t found one I’d comfortably install on my phone without fear of compromising safety.

If you’re a bit more serious about downloading videos off of YouTube and other services such as Vimeo and Facebook, you should consider getting the 4K Video Downloader app.

However, before we continue, note that downloading videos from the regular, free version of YouTube is against the site’s terms of service.

There are numerous other limitations as well: Downloading is only available on mobile devices, you can only view downloaded videos in YouTube’s native app, you cannot move them anywhere, and they go away after your subscription runs out.

The process of downloading videos is simple and consists of copying the YouTube video’s URL and pasting it into the 4K Video Downloader app.

A parting note before you go: If you’re only looking to download your own videos that you’ve uploaded to YouTube, that’s easy to do. is a global, multi-platform media and entertainment company.

And this brings another problem: Because of this, many of the ways to download YouTube videos that you’ll find online are fairly dangerous as they’re riddled with spamware and shady ads.

One of the advantages of Premium subscription is that you get to download videos for offline viewing right there on YouTube itself.

Other features of note include extracting YouTube subtitles from videos and downloading 360-degree videos as well as 3D videos.

Say you’ve encountered a cool YouTube video and want to download it for your archive to make sure you still have it in case it disappears.

YouTube has no easy "download" button, so how do you  download a video off the platform?

Probably the cleanest-looking among them is U2convert, which has a very simple UI, allowing you to paste a YouTube URL and download the video in two clicks.

For example, you can save full playlists and channels from YouTube, you can schedule videos to be automatically downloaded from a YouTube channel, and you can save videos in a variety of video/audio formats (yes, even 4K or 8K videos).
