YouTube is right up there with Facebook as the biggest time waster of our generation. But instead of hating the popular video sharing site, why not embrace it? Today, we’re going to teach you how to quickly and easily download videos from YouTube in some of the most popular video file formats.
This tool is called Save2PC, and it’s one of the easiest and most popular ways to download videos from YouTube. All you have to do is past the URL into the box and select the location that you want to save it to.
Save2PC also lets you download files from other video websites, including sites like Vimeo and even some of the more….mature…websites on the internet. Once downloaded, video files can be converted into formats for iPad, iPhone, PSP, or whatever else you want. It’s that easy. Keep in mind that the ‘light’ version of Save2PC is free, while all other versions require payment. That being said, most users will be able to manage just fine with the light version.
Want to download audio from YouTube?
Of course, if you don’t like Save2PC, then there are plenty of other tools available as well. If you just want to download the sound from a particular YouTube video (say, like a music video), then ListenToYouTube.com is a great place to go. It lets users download audio in a variety of formats and works in just a few seconds. You can also choose between low quality and high quality bit rates.
Why would I download audio and video from YouTube?
These tools are useful if your computer is ever offline, but you still want to watch your favorite videos. It’s also useful if you want to save a video before it gets taken down, or if you want to put videos on portable devices like your phone, iPod, or tablet.
