HOW TO DOWNLOAD A YOUTUBE VIDEO IN ANY AUDIO OR VIDEO FORMAT VIA WEB BROWSER

I am not an advocate of installing third party apps to do minor tasks such as downloading YouTube content, cool screen savers, or any other software to complete minor tasks. These softwares are often loaded with viruses, spyware, worms, addware, malware, ransomware and other advanced malicious ware which might really cause you tremendous problems. But sometimes you really need a video for any reason applicable to your needs and in this tutorial, I will show you how to download youtube videos in any audio or video format and quality via your web browser.

How to download YouTube content

  1. Open YouTube in your web browser.
  2. Locate and open the video you want to download.
  3. Copy (CTRL+C) the URL of the video in the address bar.
  4. Open a new tab in your web browser.
  5. Go to Google.com.
  6. In the search box, enter “Online Video Converter” and press Enter.
  7. Enter on the first link, which is “Free Video Converter, Online Video Downloader”, or alternatively click here.
  8. Scroll down to “CONVERT A VIDEO LINK / URL” and Enter on the link.
  9. Scroll down to the edit box, press Enter to open the edit box, paste (CTRL+V) the link from the clipboard and press Escape to exit the edit box again.
  10. Scroll down to the clickable “Format” button and press the Spacebar.
    Note: The default format is “.MP3” and “192 KBPS”.
  11. Enter on the audio or video format from the list which you prefer.
  12. Scroll down to the clickable “Settings” button and press Enter.
  13. Depending from your audio or video selection, a list of audio or video qualities will be available to select. Enter on the preferred quality.
    Note: I’ve experienced some problems in the passed when selecting audio qualities above 192KBPS and video qualities above 720P. So, I will recommend that you stick to the default qualities.
  14. When scrolling down, you will notice clickable buttons from where you can select the start and end time to convert the video from. Enter on any one of the buttons to edit the start time and end time respectively. Otherwise, skip these options.
  15. Scroll down to the “START” link and press Enter. The conversion will start and might take a while depending on the video length.
  16. When the conversion is complete, a new page will load containing the original name of the video, and underneath that, the “Download” link. Enter on the “Download” link and enter on save when prompted.
    Note: The file can be found in the “Downloads” folder.
  17. Alternatively, press Applications, scroll down to “Save Link As” / “Save Target As”, browse to your target destination, give your file a suitable name and press Enter.
