    Browse to the video you want to download. Change the URL in address bar to https://www.ssyoutube.com/xxxxxx

    Basically add “ss” infront of Youtube.com

    As another workaround, one could always just use your phone to "screen record" it....

    On my mobile
    Download Tubemate apk. From there you browse Youtube and click the download button. You choose the format and size and click download.
    It will require a Mp3 converter, which you then dowload.

    You can download video's and also music from this app

    But why? Isn't it akin to piracy? (sadly a lot of people do it)

    I rather bookmark it (saving it to one of my custom YouTube lists) or subscribe to it.

    Also, if one is a subscriber to YouTube, one has the option to download a video for offline viewing in the YouTube app.

    Why download ?
    We just add it to watch later (list) and then when we want to watch anything specific we start it running to the TV (Chromecast), then you can "add to queue" if required, so as to get a continuous roll over to the next.

    Because you may want to download it at a point in time when you have data connectivity or more importantly reliable fast and cheap connectivity.

    You then view it when you don't have data or good cheap data.

    I do this for training documentation. Nothing worse than setting up a lecture room with equipment and students, and you have no/poor signal and land up with 240 resolution and breaks in the presentation.

    Then, in that case, if for educational purposes, you can always use YouTube Premium, to download it.
    Not as expensive. Just something like R70/m. Same costs and services as Netflix and other streaming services.
    And you can - if you want to - claim that expense back under the guide of business/educational expenses.

    The features of YouTube really makes it worthwhile as both Peter1949 and I pointed out: bookmark it ("watch later" list) so that one won't lose it, and then when needed, download it. Unfortunately it is so that downloaded contents gets removed after 2 days but many streaming services do something similiar.

    I download many Youtube clips. Some for saving to watch later others as 4k videos to run in background on TV when busy like nature clips etc. I use an app called Tubemate. Its installed on my phone. The only con is you dont find it in the Playstore. Gotta google it then install the file then give your phone permission to install it. Never had any issues in all the years I been using it. Often needs an update though so then got to do the process again. Just dont sign into your youtube account while using it or any other account for that matter. I have a few times to also download a video on facebook but then I immediately sign out of it again.

    Sometimes slow internet. Download overnight and watch later.
