YouTube, one of the most popular social platforms, provides all sorts of videos for people to watch. Watching YouTube videos can be an entertaining way to kill time. YouTube also features the download function like other streaming services. Since you may not always have access to the internet, it enables you to watch videos without buffering. Kindly note that downloading videos is only available for YouTube Premium subscribers.
YouTube Premium, formerly YouTube Red, is a paid subscription service, which costs $11.99 per month. It allows its subscribers to watch videos without advertisements and download their favourite videos in 1080p resolution to watch offline. However, not all videos on YouTube can be downloaded if the publisher of the video makes them unavailable to download. Plus, the downloaded videos can only be viewed within the YouTube app and you can not move them to other devices or share them with your friends due to the encrypted format. If you are looking for a way to watch YouTube videos offline without paying for its Premium subscription, then you are at the right place.
