How to download videos from Youtube without using programs?
How to download videos from Youtube? See how to save a copy of a video you like on your computer to see when and where you want.
Before you start, understand that this process violates the rules for using YouTube, and any and all actions are your responsibility, with the exception of YouTube GO which is Google’s official platform but which limits you to 720P and requires an APP .
Downloading a video from Youtube can be the best way to save a video you like, or a music clip from your favorite band, etc. The problem is that the tools that YouTube makes available to download the videos are very limited, both in accessibility and in the quality of the downloaded videos, limiting the user to 720P quality even in the videos that the user himself posted.
The solution to be able to download videos in maximum quality – for those that have a quality higher than 720P – is to use some external tool, such as the ones I will quote below.
If you have already searched for this on the internet then you know that it is possible to download videos in various ways, such as through a browser extension or using some software that needs to be installed on your computer.
The problem with installing these programs is that many of them are scams to infect your PC in some way, either by placing a keylogger or a trojan on your computer and thus stealing your data and passwords.
So we will do everything directly from the browser to the unofficial sites, so you don’t have to take so much risk by simply downloading a YouTube video to your computer, come on.
How to download a video without a program?
The website that we will use to download videos directly from the web is https://en.savefrom.net/17/, this website allows you to download videos in any quality you want, including the highest resolutions like 2K (1440P) and 4K (2160P). Let’s go to the tutorial on how to use it.
The first step is to go to YouTube and copy the URL of the video you want to watch, in our case I will take a video from Linus Tech Tips to demonstrate the availability of video qualities that the site presents.
After you have copied the URL of the desired video as shown in the image above, go to the savefrom website by following this link and paste the copied URL in the field indicated by the website.
After you insert the link, the website will automatically detect the video you want to download and automatically select the MP4 720P video option with sound. To see the other video quality options available, click the arrow.
Note that to have audio in the video the maximum quality you can download is 720P, if you want a higher quality the video will be downloaded completely without audio. You can also download a video with audio and a higher quality video without the audio and later combine the two in an editing software, so you have the audio together with the high image quality.
I also point out that the quality available for download is directly related to the quality of the video, if the video only goes up to 480P, then this will be the best option available on the site.
So let’s say I select 4K quality, when selecting a new window it will open with the video playing, extremely similar to the print window below.
Don’t panic, the site works anyway. When opening this window, note that in the lower right corner there is a small menu of options with 3 dots, click on these 3 dots and select the option “Download”, and then the video will be downloaded to your computer.
And that’s it, now you have a video saved from YouTube in the quality you want. Remember that this method is not the official YouTube and you may end up taking some punishment on the platform for doing this. If you want to download but make sure everything is right, I recommend using Google’s own APP , YouTube GO.
