4 Tools to Download & Convert Youtube Videos Easily

Google doesn’t allow you to download YouTube videos and we understand that choice. However, sometimes you need to save a series of lectures, build your offline collection of videos from your favorite artists or have a thousand other legitimate reasons to save videos from YouTube.

Here are 3 easy-as-pie tools you can use for downloading YouTube videos in either MP4, MP3 formats or as a GIF.




The simplest tool for downloading Youtube videos out there, CONV offers GIF conversion as well.

Using CONV for converting and saving YouTube videos is easy. All you need to do is add “conv” to the start of the URL link of the video you want to save/convert. Once you do that, just hit enter and it will redirect you to the conversion page where you can choose to save the video as MP4, MP3 or as a GIF.

For video conversions, it allows for different video quality options depending on your need. For GIFs it lets you convert a 20 second portion of a video into a GIF. Any portion of the video can be converted.

MP3 conversions let you change the Artist name, Title and the Album name.

Clip Converter

Clip Converter

Clip Converter (CC) allows for even more video and audio formats to convert Youtube videos.

There is an additional option to download YouTube videos in 60 frames per second (fps) as well, which is perfect for gaming and media enthusiasts.

To convert a video, you can head to the CC website here. Paste the YouTube link and it will ask you the format and quality of the video you want it converted in. You will be provided a link to download the Youtube video.

Online Video Converter

Online Video Converter

Probably the most feature rich tool on this list, Online Video Converter has extensions for Google Chrome, Firefox and Safari so that you don’t need to visit the site each time you want to convert a YouTube video.

It also supports Soundcloud, Vimeo, Dailymotion and many other websites.

Unlike Clip Converter though, you can’t download 60 fps videos from this one. Head over to the website for converting videos here. Download the browser extensions from here.

Vid to mp3 converter

The convenient and easy-to-go tool for converting youtube videos into any other format is vid to mp3 converter.

Use of this converter,  to save and download the video, is merely as simple. You just have to enter the link of the video in the URL bar at the center of the page, and choose the preferred format for the conversion of the video. Now click on the “Convert it” button at the bottom of the page that will make the conversion started right away.

Once the conversion is completed, you can download a file on the desired location on any of the device. Most notably, this vid to mp3 converter offers the conversion formats for the audio or video that are webm, mp4, mp3, aac, m4a, f4v, or 3gp that is an ultimate fit for music enthusiasts.

Browse over vid to mp3 converter to get the videos in your preferred format.

  • xulfiqarameen

      • Ishtiaq

        Pls also tell the easiest way or Android app to download facebook videos.

        • Haamiz Ahmed

          The online video converter mentioned in the article can download Facebook videos as well. Don’t know about a good Android app for Facebook videos though.

          You can try this one but i can’t guarantee it’ll work:

        • Azzam Malik

          Download one tap download for Android but xposed is required for fb and yt

  • Zafar

    Only in Pakistan you can find such stupid articles about how to save copyrighted work in your own computer.

  • Give it a try http://keepvid.com/
    or download Torch Browser http://torchbrowser.com/ for downloading any video / audio from any site.

  • Karl Saunders

    I would recommend this small application by the name clip grab. Works both on Windows and Mac.

  • zq145

    If you want more functionality, use youtube-dl. It is a command line tool, but you can download best quality videos, playlists, and can convert them to any format including mp3. It is available on linux and windows.

  • KMQ

    Boss no match to IDM, aapko kuch nahi karna just video play karni hai aur side par automatically download video ka button ajaega and you can even select the quality you want to download. Aur baki IDM ki download speed ka tu aapko pata hi hoga :-)

  • Waqas

    Have you ever tried Baidu Browser? It’s built in download helper can download videos from almost all video sharing sites including dailymotion.

  • Waqas

    ya here here kya hota hai. proper website ke naam ko link kia kerain, or hyperlink ka color thora prominent kerain, khordbeen laga ke dekhna parta hai link

  • Nawaz Arshad

    As far as downloading YT videos are concerned, UC browser has a built in feature to download them and pretty fast so without any extension.

  • Masroor Hussain

    Have IDM to rule them all

  • Muhammad Aadil


  • Azzam Malik

    One tap download for Android (xposed required)
    Simple and easy just play and download option pops up and you can download even from fb and all videos across Web

  • Saqib

    You missed the most versatile one i.e. youtube-dl.

  • yasir ali
