Recently, I've found some really funny videos on YouTube. I'm wondering whether there is any way to download YouTube videos for free?

Thanks in advance!

You will need Firefox

Download Firefox — Free Web Browser — Mozilla


Then add

Video DownloadHelper :: Add-ons for Firefox


Nothing else is needed works 100% with youtube, Its free ( unless you want the extra decoders). Tested and working at the time of this post.

there is a big long thread on this in another part of this forum. my advice for the method is to use www.clipconverter.cc but ENSURE that you have an adblocker, noscript, a good antivirus and that you never accept that websites offers of a "download helper". i select avi as my download format, it gives big files but better compatibility although the avi files i get from there will play in vlc but not in windows media player. the site also lets you trim the ends off the clips before download. for using the noscript and adblock extensions you will need for this site (it is laced with ads, many of which look highly suspicious, or atleast suspicious enough to turn on my paranoia ) you will want firefox as a browser.

Back on this site, for a while anyway, been so busy the last year.

My systems:2 laptops, intel i3 processors, windows 8.1 installed on the hard-drive and linux mint 17.3 MATE installed to USB

I use Any Video Converter




You can download from lots of sources and has the added benefit that one downloaed you can convert to a suitable format and size. Been using for a couple of years without any problems.
