How to Download and Save YouTube Videos for Free

At some point, we’ll all encounter being sucked into the black hole that is YouTube. Minutes or hours can go by as you browse through videos uploaded by everyday people like you and me.

Whether you consume most of your videos on YouTube, downloading your favorite music video for offline viewing or personal use has probably crossed your mind.

One of the biggest questions on the tips of YouTubers’ tongues is “How do I download YouTube videos?”

“Before we get to our YouTube downloading methods, websites and plug-ins, it goes without saying that you should use these tools for good and not evil. Distributing copyrighted material without authorization is illegal in the United States and many other countries. CBS Interactive does not encourage or condone the illegal duplication or distribution of copyrighted content. Before copying or distributing any content online, make sure you have the legal right to do so.”

However, with the guidelines of the platform getting changed without any earlier notices and other complaints in tow, a large section of unhappy users are looking for other YouTube alternative websites or video downloading options that can propose them similar content.

In case you are one of them and looking for different video streaming sites or downloading methods, here’s is the best alternative to YouTube in the United States;


GoogleTune is an upgraded version of video sharing site like YouTube and has an extremely user-friendly interface. Here, you can find the latest videos on the homepage or search more through categories section and search bar at the top.

The features of the website show that it has been highly inspired by PlayTube. It gives the feature of saving videos that can be viewed anytime.
