How to Download YouTube Videos on Android, Mac, Linux and Windows PC in 2019 (simplest method)

This post teaches the simplest way to download YouTube videos on your Android mobile device as well as on your Mac, Linux and Windows PC for offline viewing.

Now, the best way I have found to download YouTube videos on your Android mobile phone is using TubeMate.

TubeMate is a free Android app that downloads YouTube videos to your phone in the simplest and most straightforward way.

Also, the best way I have found to download YouTube videos on your computer whether Mac, Linux or Windows is using Xtreme Downloader Manager (XDM).

With that summary out of the way, let’s get started…

How to Download YouTube Videos on Android

To download YouTube videos on Android mobile phones follow these 7 simple steps:

Step 1: Download the TubeMate Android app.

Download TubeMate YouTube Video Downloader from Official Website

Step 2: Open your YouTube mobile App and search for the video you want to download.

Search for video to download from YouTube app

Step 3: Play the video and click on the share button.

Click on Share button on YouTube app

Step 4: Locate the TubeMate App Icon on the list and select it.

Select TubeMate app

Step 5: Select the quality you want the video to be downloaded in.

Step 6: Tap the red download arrow and allow the video to download.

Choose quality to download video from YouTube

Step 7: Play the video directly from the app or locate it in the relevant folder (usually named “Video”) on your phone’s internal storage.

You can, however, reduce these 7 steps to just 3. That’s if you search for the YouTube video you want to download directly on the TubeMate app.

But I prefer to go through the YouTube app because I’m already logged in on it. And accessing videos I have marked to be downloaded later is easier to find that way.

Now that’s how easy to download videos from YouTube to your Android mobile phone in 3-7 clicks.

This is far more convenient than copying the YouTube video links to another website before it can be downloaded.

Here are more reasons why I think TubeMate is the best YouTube Video downloader app there is:

Advantages of Downloading YouTube Videos on Android with TubeMate

1. You can either download a single YouTube video or an entire YouTube video playlist easily.

2. You can have up to 4 YouTube videos download simultaneously at high speed depending on the speed of your network connection.

3. You can queue videos to be downloaded at a later time pending when you have good WiFi or 4G connection.

4. The downloading videos can be paused and resumed at ANY time without fear of having a broken or expired YouTube download link.

5. If a video has a caption file, TubeMate downloads it right off of YouTube’s servers along with the video.

6. If you exhaust your data allocation while TubeMate was still downloading a YouTube video, no worries! You can fully watch the downloaded portion of that video up till the point the downloading stopped.

7. With TubeMate for Android, any and every video on YouTube is downloadable even those marked with asterisks (*).

How to Download YouTube Videos on Mac, Windows and Linux computers

I highly recommend using the Android method with the TubeMate app for downloading YouTube videos and then you can transfer the videos to your computer or laptop if that’s where you want them.

But if you prefer to download your YouTube videos straight to your computer, these simple 8 steps will guide you:

Step 1: Download and install Xtreme Downloader Manager (XDM) software on your computer.

Step 2: Install the XDM browser monitor extension for your favorite browser. (Chrome, Firefox)

Step 3: Search for the YouTube video you want to download.

Step 4: Play for a few seconds on the quality you want that YouTube video downloaded.

Step 5: A DOWNLOAD widget will appear ‘automagically’ almost immediately at the bottom right corner of your screen without you doing anything.

Step 6: Click that download button and on the drop-down menu confirm the download format of the video.

Step 7: Select the location you want the video to download on your computer’s storage.

Step 8: Wait for the download to complete.

The nice thing about XDM is that it is a cross-platform software.

That means whatever operating system you are using, be it a Windows, MAC or even Linux computer, you can download YouTube videos with so much ease and simplicity.

Final word

I’d like you to be aware that YouTube frowns at downloading of their videos by means of third-party software.

This is clearly stated in the YouTube’s Terms of Service…the Service is solely for streaming. The YouTube data is intended for real-time viewing and not intended to be downloaded (either permanently or temporarily) by the user.”

So be careful what you do with the data you download from YouTube because you could potentially be trampling upon these Terms of Service.
