Ways to Download YouTube Videos on Android
There are more than one ways to do this, some require an application and others require some Android knowledge. But for now, let me tell you about some applications for which you do not need any experience at all.
Perhaps the easiest way to download videos from YouTube. TubeMate lets you search for videos, share, view and download them all from a simple to use interface. After installation, you can choose the download resolution, format and can even convert the video into MP3. The option to download multiple videos is also available, and also the ability to pause and resume downloads. Wonderful isn’t it?
Another application for your Android phones, in case you can’t find the one above. However, this application is not available in the Android Market. Don’t worry, Google is your friend!! Once you’ve located the installation file and downloaded it, go ahead and install it on your device. To download videos, first open YouTube app and locate the video you want to download, touch hold it until a Menu pops up, click on share and select YouTube Ripper. The application will automatically open, now click on Rip it and wait for your video to be downloaded to your download folder in SD card.
Works on any Android device running on version 1.5 and above. This app was developer for Android by an XDA-developers member and here is the original thread.
This you must all be familiar with, one of the alternatives to YouTube Downloader for the web. Although it’s not mentioned on the Android Market that you can download videos using this, it does. KeepVid app for Android works just as the website, but in the form of an application. It works the same, you can download videos from YouTube directly to your mobile phone.You can also open your browser, go to keepvid.com and download the video from there or you can use this app.
If you like watching videos on your Android phone, specially the ones with large screens, then you should try downloading YouTube videos instead of converting and pasting them in to your SD card. Try them out and let us know which among these was your favorite.
