Download YouTube Video

When you visit a video page on the YouTube website, you will see a "Download Video" image button on the left bottom corner of the playing video. Just click this button to start downloading the video. For most videos, you will see the "Download Video" come up as shown below,

If you just want to the video file, select the resolution and format from the list box on the left side and click the "Download Video" button to download the video on the current page. If you wish to download the video file and also extract the mp3 audio file from the video file, check the option "Extract mp3 audio file from video file" and then click the "Download Video" button. The extracted audio won't be directly accessible from the download manager. But you can locate it under the same folder as the video file using Windows Explorer. If you only want to download the audio track without the video data, you have to wait until the video has started playing for at least 5 seconds (not including the video ads before the actual video). After that, click the "Download Audio" button to start downloading the audio track in mp3 format.

A small portion of the videos on YouTube can't be downloaded via this method mentioned above. You will get a warning if you attempt to download it before it actually starts to play. For such videos, you will have to wait until the video has started playing for at least 5 seconds. If you want to download the video in a resolution different from the default value, you need manually switch to the desired resolution in the video player and wait for the player to finish switching the resolution. After that, click the "Download Video" image button in the web page to start downloading. The audio and video data will be downloaded separately with this method. There will be some additional post-processing after the video and audio data has been downloaded. Please wait until the post-processing is complete before attempting to access the downloaded files. If everything goes well, you will get a mp4 video file and a mp3 file audio file accessible from the download manager at the end.
