On YouTube, there are billions of hours of video. Literally. That’s not even the most amazing fact about the site, which has been the go-to place for uploading and watching video since 2005. However, there are occasions when you truly want or need one of those videos on your computer or phone. When it comes to downloading YouTube videos, however, there is a side issue that must be addressed: Is it permissible?
You’re probably fine in terms of copyright as long as you’re downloading a video for your own personal offline usage.
It’s also worth mentioning: Google and video creators lose money when people watch YouTube videos offline through unauthorised means. There’s a reason YouTube has advertisements: it’s how some people make money.
