Important news: Recently, YouTube has rolled out a series of changes to retard the download from the video site. As a result, many downloader tools such as 4K video downloader, Clipgrab, Realplayer and more encountered errors, such as "Error. Unknown site", "Can't parse this link. Please send it to our support and we'll check it" and more, but MacX YouTube Downloader successfully parses the YT link and makes downloading as easy as possible.
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). First create an account and log in. The extensions icon turns green on a YouTube page—click it to create the times you want, and they are then saved and easily shared; the viewer goes back to YouTube and sees what you specify. It's not really close to saving a video for your offline use, but could be useful in certain circumstances.
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.
However, even free, you can grab 4K video from YouTube with no problem. A 575.4MB file took over 10.5 minutes—no surprise with the speed restriction, but still agonizingly painful. There's an option to convert the file to MKV, AVI, or WMV as you download it. If you want a playlist, you can do them in a batch, but in my test TubeGet would only allow a max of 1080p HD even on the 8K video playlist.
This URL video downloader makes video grabbing as easy as A-B-C. To download a video, all you need to do is to copy and paste the video link and wait for the app to analyze and grab the target video. Moreover, it allows you to download in different formats and qualities. Instead of downloading and then converting the video to your preferred format, now you can choose the requisite format before the downloading begins.
