You’ve seen an amazing video of a cat dancing to Rihanna’s latest and you want to send it to all your friends. But of course, sending a link to YouTube looks a bit bad, and you know not everyone will open it. And you don’t want them to miss out on that feline hip shake. Don’t worry: we bring you the solution to download any YouTube video without dying in the attempt and fill your mobile with cat videos. We’d lie, but deep down we all know what we consume on the Internet.
Pay (or not)
You’re not going to like the first option, but get your wallet ready, because you’re going to have to subscribe to YouTube Premium. Yes, that thing where you get an ad every eight or nine videos asking you, please, to spend your money. Downloading videos as a premium member is very simple: click on “Download” under the video, select the quality and that’s it. In exchange for this simplicity, however, you pay 11.99 euros per month after the first free month. Keep in mind that right now there are 80 million subscribers, so don’t feel alone: there are also people who paid for WinRAR!
Another option is to download videos using browser extensions, installing the YouTube Video Downloader or a similar app, which, truth be told, leaves little doubt about its function. Installing it is a bit more difficult -but 11.99 euros per month cheaper-, so be careful: first, download the Chrome extension Foxified. Give it all the necessary permissions and you will find automatically and below the video a download button. It may take a while if you decide to download that half-hour compilation of UFO sightings, but in less than you think it will be downloaded to your mobile. You won’t be helping the authors, but your goal of having a video to pass on to your family will be accomplished.
But imagine that you don’t want to mess with Chrome extensions (or that you still use Edge, as if we were in the Middle Ages!). Then you can always download the Open Video Downloader app, which, once again, doesn’t hide its function either. Let’s see how to get that performance of Tu Cara Me Suena that you love so much because Eva Soriano and Lalachus are hilarious: After downloading Open Video Downloader, copy the address of the video, paste it into the app to put it in the queue, choose in “Preferences” the video quality or the video extension, click on “Download”… Et voilà!
You may have arrived here saying “Well, all right, but I downloaded the Doraemon Almond Tree song using a website and…”. Well, yes, there are web options, but if you don’t want to fill your computer with downloads you didn’t ask for and see how suddenly everything is full of ads, starting to doubt if Venga Monjas is so worth it, we recommend you to follow our previous recommendations. You’re welcome!
