As with websites, there are lots of options for downloading with a desktop app. Not all are free, but some are. A paid-for one we can recommend isByClick Downloader. It has an easy-to-use interface, is regularly updated & makes it supremely easy to cài về video – or just audio – from YouTube.

All you have to vị is to lớn copy the URL of a video and a pop-up will ask if you want to cài đặt về the audio or video. Or you can mix a default and it won’t even ask: it will automatically cài đặt về the MP3 or MP4 at the default quality.

There are lots of alternatives, but none that we’ve found lớn be as good.

They includeiTubeGo, which offers a basic interface, but which can cài về playlists and 4K videos. It’s more expensive at $29.95 though.

Previous sites we’d used for years, such asSaveFrom, no longer operate in the UK or US, & even if you bởi find a ‘safe’ site that will let you thiết lập về videos, there are usually restrictions.

Typically, you’ll be limited lớn downloading a lower-quality 720p version, even if a video is in 1080p or 4K. And not all will mua về just the audio (from a music video, for example).
