Why? Simple: because you can download your favorite videos or stuff you want to watch later, say, when you’re flying somewhere, without the need for an internet connection.

The Three Main Reasons To Use A YouTube Downloader



    • Offline Viewing – You can watch videos anytime without an internet connection. Ideal for when you’re flying or traveling without a reliable internet source


    • Backing Up Your Content – If you regularly upload content to YouTube, a YouTube downloader will let you store backups for your content in case anything gets accidentally deleted.


    • Save Yourself Data – If you’re on the move and you don’t want to use your mobile data to access YouTube, you can save a LOAD of data simply by downloading a wealth of content on your home network
