There are workarounds. One is using a free iOS file manager app like Documents by Readdle. Use the Safari browser to visit a YouTube video, and use the Share option to find Copy Link. Then go back to Documents, and use the built-in browser in the app to surf to a video download helper site like SaveFrom.net. Paste the link into the form (hold your finger down on it until you get "Paste" menu to pop up). The site will give you the links to download, and you can save the file to Documents. Hold down and drag the file up, until you're back on the main screen, then drag it to the Photos folder. You'll need to give Documents permission to access Photos the first time. You can then access the video like you would any video taken on the phone or tablet—in the Photos app.

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.
Normally it takes around 1 second to extract the downloading url for videos like Youtube, for some videos it make take longer, but no more than 5 seconds. If the extracting process takes more than 5 seconds, you better check the settings of your browser, sometimes it is due to the extension like "uBlock Origin". The speed will be greatly enhanced after disabling such extensions. Otherwise, just clear the cookies of the browser, the problem will be solved most of the times.

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.


In tests, I had to make a switch from MP4 to MKV format to get my test video to download in 4K. 4KVD snagged the 579.4MB file in about 43 seconds. It defaults back to 1080p HD, so I made the same switch when downloading an Ultra High Definition (8K) playlist. If you enable the Smart Mode and its pre-sets, 4K Video Downloader can then do one-click downloads to your favorite format. If you want to download more than 25 videos at a time or subscribe to YouTube channels to instantly download the latest, that requires the $15 paid version. Playback of the MKV file via VLC Media Player was flawless.

Thus, YouTube has asked for a revamping of its guidelines, demanding the YouTubers to tag their creations according to their targeted audience, which should later be approved.
This is a Chrome extension that actually works from the Web Store—because it doesn't let you download YouTube videos. It time marks snippets you can share (only from YouTube).

It's not really close to saving a video for your offline use, but could be useful in certain circumstances.
