Youtube is most amazing source for the different collections of videos, this makes Youtube as a most popular and favorite video hosting resource.Youtube website is design in such a way that user can only watch and view the videos on their website but they cannot download any video from Youtube website. There are so many users those who want to download interesting videos from Youtube to their computer and watch them without being connected to the internet.
In this article I am dividing all the methods or ways to download the Youtube videos in three categories.
