Watch YouTube videos anywhere – anytime.
YouTube video downloaders are everywhere, but where did all these apps come from?
It’s been said that there are more than 3 million videos uploaded every day to the worldwide web. And with each new upload comes the need for a way to share them with friends and family members who aren’t online at the time.
This article will walk you through downloading free YouTube videos using the browser and without an additional app.
How can I download the video from YouTube?
The first step is finding a video on YouTube. You’ll want to search for something specific, like your favorite band or athlete.
Once you find a video, you’d like to watch, click on it and then press play. This should start playing the video on the YouTube website.
If it doesn’t, try refreshing the page by pressing CTRL + F5 or CMD + R . If this still doesn’t work, try searching again.
You may have to do this several times before you get lucky!
Now that you’ve found a video you want to save let’s go over how to download it.

How to Play YouTube Videos on Your Computer?
While you can technically download any YouTube video for offline playback or sharing, some people prefer to stream their videos instead.
Streaming is when you don’t download anything. Instead, the video is shown in real-time.
This means that you won’t be able to pause or rewind the video, but you can choose to skip ahead or back.
To stream a YouTube video, visit youtube.co/video stream. After clicking on the “Play” button, you’ll betaken to a new window where you can choose which videos you’d like to watch.
Choose the video you’d like and press play. Now, you’re ready to enjoy the video in its entirety.
However, streaming is generally much slower than downloading. So, if you plan on watching the video frequently, it might be best to download it.
YouTube has made it simple to download videos for offline playback. However, you can also download videos from other sites.
Let’s look at another site called Vimeo. To download a video from Vimeo, navigate tovimeohome.com/videos.
You’ll notice that there is no way to select individual videos. You’ll need to scroll through each page until you find the video you’d like.
Once you’ve found it, you’ll see a little box with the name of the video. Click on that box and then press Ctrl+S to save the video. This will take you to the same screen where you can choose the le format and size.
If you have trouble finding a particular video, try searching for it using Google. For example, type “Vimeo search.”
The first result should be a list of videos matching your query. Scroll through the results until you find the one you’re looking for.
That’s how you can easily download videos from Vimeo for offline viewing.
