Download YouTube Videos

YouTube the number one video hosting site more than million videos in its store, albums, product launch, concert, tutorials, movies, songs and many more .Here are list of services or software which you use to download this videos to your pc and use them. I have not tested all of them, but I put this before you as a reference for all who wants to download the videos.

Basically the downloader’s come in 2 types one online (web based) with no download or installation required, a website asks you the link of the  video and it downloads and convert it and then gives you a link of video that you can download.

The other way is install the software and put the link and download the video directly to your pc.

Advantage the software programs has got over online one is that it gives you option for keeping downloads in queue ,pause downloads, download all parts of video, join video and convert video depending upon the software type and functionality.

List of Online Download services:

1. Keepvid: A straightforward service. The user needs to paste the url of the Youtube video in the form provided on the website. Keepvid will then offer low quality and high quality downloads of the video. Works with other video portals like MySpace video or Dailymotion as well.
