NOTE: Beware of the ad traps on some helper sites—ads that look like they should be the download button to get your desired content, but they are not. Also, depending on the ad network employed by the site, your own virus detection software may throw up some warnings. The more the developers of sites rely on ads they don't control, or resort to trying to get you to place something on your system as "payment," the worse off we all are.
Another workaround: Go back to the desktop and try AnyTrans ($39.99 for a single computer), a file manager for iOS devices that has an integrated downloader supporting 900 sites, including YouTube and Facebook. It'll transfer the videos to the iPhone for you over the USB cable. Even if you don't pay for AnyTrans, the download option remains and is free forever.
The next step is to open a command prompt by typing “cmd”  into the Windows search box and hitting enter. This opens up a command-line interface. Right-click in the command line interface box and hit ctrl-v to paste in the command. You’ll notice that the command is huge and unwieldy – that’s why we copied and pasted it from the browser interface, rather than typing it in from scratch.
For this software, you just need to copy the YouTube link and paste it directly into the box that’s labeled for the link. Then you get to choose the format that you want to download it into. You’re going to need to download their specific software in order to be able to download, but then you just have to click to download, and you’re all set. It really is just that easy. You can even tell it to download multiple URLs at the same time, so you can fill in everything you want to download and tell it to start while you head off to do other things.
The DVDVideoSoft system gives you free downloads in just about any style you might need. It’s an easier YouTube video downloader that consists of only three different steps.

Third-party software is where you will get the best control over downloading online videos. Typically, you paste the URL for the YouTube video you want into the program, and it downloads the highest quality version it can find. For videos in 1080p High Definition (HD) format, that's usually an MP4 file. For anything higher in quality—4K and even 8K videos—the file format is typically MKV.
You just need to copy your preferred playing URL, or right click on the video to select "Copy video URL", then paste the URL into the search box of Distill Video (http://distillvideo.com) and press “Start” button. After waiting 2-3 seconds, the video section showed, choose your preferred format and right click the "Download" button, then click "Save link as..." to download the video or audio into your computer or mobile phone. It supports HD: 1080p, 2k, 4k and 8k. If you are using browsers of the smart phone or tablet, just Touch and hold the "Download" button, then click "Download link" to save the file to your device.
It may take some time depending on the number of files you have and the total size. You can use the "Email me when done" option to get notified once the archival completes. You can then download the created archive locally. Make sure to download it to your Google Drive shared folder or copy it there after download so it gets synced and backed up in the cloud.
I keep copies of all my uploaded videos to YouTube on an external hard drive but most people don't do this. You run the risk of losing all your hard work should YouTube terminate your account. Google Drive makes it easy to backup all the current videos on your YouTube channel. It also makes video management very simple. You can preview your videos within Google Drive or download them at any time.
The Chrome Web Store—where you get Chrome browser extensions—is controlled by YouTube's owner Alphabet/Google. Even an extension ostensibly for this purpose—like the obviously named Video Downloader professional above—states right up front in its description, "The download of YouTube videos to hard drive is locked because of restrictions of the Chrome Store." In general with Chrome extensions, the download of any RTMP protocol video (protected videos) or streaming video isn't possible.
The same as you do to download any other videos. You just need to choose the 1080p or 4k format in the video result section, sometimes it is in the "video only" section that without sound, then you have to download the audio file (M4A) in the same result section, then you can load the video file and audio files together on your computer using the video playing software, such as VLC. You also can combine the video and audio files by using ffmpeg. Some youtube video does not have HD format originally, in such case, you definitely can not download any HD format video.
Totally free, 5KPlayer from DearMob is a media-playing utility that is a lot more than a downloader—but it's got a heck of a downloader integrated. Promising no viruses, ads, or plug-in requirements is a good start. It is, sadly, one of the few I tested that asks for a registration of your name and email—you have to do that to get the full download function across 300+ sites. You may still use it if you don't register; I didn't and was able to download 4K vids from YouTube.

Facebook has been growing at such a pace that other social networking platforms have been left far behind. In fact, Facebook has been prioritizing videos and even plans on challenging Google’s video business. Since the days when people used to share trending videos on FB have been replaced by ways in which Facebook itself makes stuff viral, you might want to download Facebook videos on your device now and then. Here’s how:
One clear example of where this works is with YouTube videos. Downloading videos from YouTube is a popular request and there are lots of tools that can do it (many that charge), so you might be surprised to learn that you can download any video from YouTube with nothing more than a browser hack. You can also download entire YouTube playlists at once.
DistillVideo supports to run in any browser accross any platform, regardless of whether you are using Windows, Mac or Linux, Android, iPhone. Provide audios/videos in full file formats including MP4, AVI, MP3, WEBM, FLV, 3GP, M4A, etc. It also supports HD videos of 1080P, 2K, 4K and 8K. It can convert any online video to MP3 for free (free MP3 converter). Subtitles can be extracted and downloaded as well. No need to install any annoying softwares or apps that may infect your computer or android phone. It is the best and free downlowder to download any video from any site using url online.
Another problem many people run into with not downloading videos is that they often forget how they got there in the first place. You might forget the title or who posted the video or even some of the key features. That makes it difficult to find the video again in the future. When it comes to downloading those videos, however, you won’t have to worry about that because you’ll have the videos you like to watch available right there. You won’t have to worry about how you’re going to track it down later on because you’ll have it in whatever folder you want with a name that means something to you.
This wikiHow teaches you how to download videos from most websites for free. There isn't a catch-all option that can download any site's video all at once, but by using a couple of different options, you should be able to download almost any video from any website. If you want to download Facebook videos, the process is slightly different than with most video downloaders.
The DVDVideoSoft system gives you free downloads in just about any style you might need. It’s an easier YouTube video downloader that consists of only three different steps. The system is older than some because it’s more than ten years old and it provides some of the best quality you could want. It’s available to be used on both PC and Mac computers, which gives you the level of versatility and flexibility that you’re looking for before you even get started. Plus, you can get a range of different options or different formatting features to the videos that you want to download.
