I know guys that YouTube gives us an awesome feature known as “download offline”, but the problem is that this awesome only works in mobile phones  (Android and iOS) i.e. you can’t use this feature in PC or Laptop. “Download Offline” option in YouTube means after taking any YouTube video in offline you can watch it without an Internet connection up to 48 hours, so you can enjoy YouTube video without worrying about the slow internet connection.

Now another question arises is that is downloading YouTube Video is legal or not? You can also say that this is a HOT question as this question is mainly about copyright. So let me answer this question.

Is downloading YouTube video is legal or not?

How to Download YouTube Videos

So, as we all know that YouTube is owned by Google and it is very strict on copyright or piracy. When a YouTube creator upload a video on YouTube and that video use a soundtrack or other element owned by that creator (person or company) so Google marks that creator as an original content creator. If someone publishes a video which is not original or whose copyright belongs to others, then Google takes that video down. You have no rights to access other content for any reason other than your individual or personal use, non-commercial use solely as intended through and permitted by the normal functionality of the Service, and solely for Streaming.

In short, if you are downloading a YouTube video just for personal use then it is legal, but if you are copying, reproduce, transmit, distribute, broadcast, display, sell, or license then it is illegal.

Ok! So now the times come to answer the question which is how to download YouTube Video. We can download YouTube video in 2 different ways: first is through the website, and the second one is through the (mobile) apps.

Note: In this article, I will only tell you about the first method of downloading i.e. downloading youtube video by the website. Don’t worry my lovely readers I will make another article which is on how we can download YouTube video through (mobile) apps.
