Youtube sure is the most popular video sharing site on the internet right now. It is now the way for people to express their feelings and talents throughout everyone. YouTube allows users to upload and share videos easily BUT, downloading them is the biggest downfall. Youtube doesn’t provide us a download option.
If you are a YouTube fan and you want to keep copies of interesting videos on it to your computer, there are several ways to download them.

This is my chosen way of downloading youtube videos. This is paid software but it is worth it. Once installed, you just need to go to the YouTube video and a pop-up button will appear to whether you like it to download or not. There are options whether what quality you like (240p, 360p, 480p. 720p or 1080p) and what format would you like it to be downloaded.
