How To Download YouTube Videos

Sometimes you need a video clip that’s available online for offline use – like using it as an example for a class or workshop.

Other times, you may want to be able to play it offline for your own review at a later time when it’s more convenient for you, or when you know you won’ t have internet access (like on a plane).

There’s definitely a bunch of sites available now that let you download videos from YouTube and other video sharing sites out there.

Usually all you have to do is copy/paste the video page URL from Youtube, MetaCafe or other video site into the form on the video download site and you’re all set to go.

But once in awhile, your favorite Youtube video grabber site can’t download the video file.  That’s when you have to go looking for other options.

Other than Kisstube and Vixy, I found another favorite that seems to work for me . . . works just the same.  This site does give a couple of download options including flv format, mp4 as well as HD video which YouTube presents sometimes. also shares some of the videos that others have used the site to download so you can get a sense of what people are watching and downloading.

Do you have any other favorite sites to download videos from online video platforms?  Please add them in the comments below.
