YouTube being the biggest website in Online video streaming & search engine, has developed algorithms to avoid illegal download & distribution of their content. While there are various YouTube videos download website, it’s really troublesome to copy link & goto download website & paste the link then you can begin the download.
Even if you download a YouTube video, the question arises is “is this Legal?”. Well, unless and until you’re downloading it your personal use, you’re Okay! But Google’s guidelines strictly says “You shall not download any Content unless you see a ‘download’ or similar link displayed by YouTube on the Service for that Content.”
Do Google doesn’t want you to download YouTube videos? Once you have downloaded the videos, you’ll surely not watch the video again on Youtube; that is you’re taking money out of Google’s pocket & taking away the hard work of content creators as YouTube Ads are their major source of income. So, if you’re looking to reupload a YouTube video, it’s a big no-no. YouTube is very strict with Copyright policies & you don’t want to loose your Google account.
While there are many ways of downloading a YouTube video, you always wanted a “Download” button next to the video or on the video page, which ever is possible. Earlier, I used IDM which provided the download option. But IDM being a paid software, rules it out of the category.
