How To: Download YouTube Videos On Android, No App
YouTube videos are supposedly best enjoyed when streamed, yet every sometime you find plenty of reasons to save and cherish them as the apple of your eye. We all know how the lack of Wi-Fi hotspots can be the bane of our lives and squandering mobile data connection can cost you a pretty penny.
Maybe you are traveling with American Airlines or JetBlue and don’t want to splurge on the Wi-Fi they are offering onboard. Or you just loved that song so much that you want to be able to watch it over and over again until death do you part or your ears bleed.
Anyway, chances are you’d need to download that Youtube video at some point. And as always we’ve got you covered. Here is a quick and easy way to keep those old favorites close without any dedicated app solutions.
First of all, find the Google Chrome browser icon on your homescreen and open it. Tap on the three vertical dots in the top-right corner of the browser. Check the option “request desktop site”. Now you’ll only see the desktop versions of the sites you’re browsing.
Getting that link
Type the title of the video you want to download in the search bar. After getting the results column, tap and hold on that video, until a new window pops up as shown. Now copy the link address.
Saving the video
Insert the copied link in the browser’s address bar, type a double “s” after www. and tap go.
You’ll be redirected to the site called Savefrom. Now choose the best quality -MP4 720p, - and download the desired video. Make sure there is no red volume sign, as it indicates lack of the audio-track.
That’s it! Following these simple steps, you’ll download videos from YouTube to your device in the blink of an eye.
