Are you facing difficulties in downloading YouTube videos to phone memory or gallery? If yes, in this article I have explained how to download YouTube videos in mobile phone & laptop and save them to internal storage or SD card.
But first of all, I would like to put a disclaimer regarding this. “Downloading YouTube videos for offline use using third party websites or software is not legal as it violates its terms of service.”
Most people want to offline the videos in order to save data or for future use. You can legally download the videos from the official website or app as well as shown below.
How to download videos from YouTube app
- Open YouTube App and search for the video you want to download.
- Click on the download button just below the video. After clicking, select your quality preference, your video will be downloaded and stored in the Downloads section.
The YouTube video will be saved in the internal storage of your phone. But, the videos will not appear in your phone’s gallery or any other video players.
The downloaded YouTube videos are encrypted to play within the official YouTube app only. Each video will retain in your device for 28 days only, and you need to connect to the internet to avoid deletion.
And also in some cases, the download button is disabled and you will be asked to buy a premium of YouTube as shown below. YouTube download feature is not available in all countries. Some of the features described here solely depend on your respective country, and mobile phone service provider.
Previously YouTube Red, the YouTube Premium is now introduced for the subscribers that lets users watch videos seamlessly on the platform.
The newly introduced YouTube Premium is the same old YouTube Red which waslaunched in a few countries including the United States. Once you are a subscriber, you can download any videos to watch later right from the YouTube app but you can’t access in phone’s gallery.
So, in order to avoid all those cases we can use third parties apps, websites, or software to download videos.
