Download YouTube video on iPhone, Android, MacBooks and PC
Sometimes all you want to do is perhaps to download videos from youtube, there are various reason that might prompt such decisions for example, you might have a lot of data subscription that is about to expire, you might have access to free wifi, streaming a movie where there is a bad network signal, about to board a plane, you are in the middle of watching a video and you had to leave for something urgent, you want to watch a tutorial you wanted to use at an area with poor network signal and so on.
However, Youtube is not in support of you downloading their video and has somehow made it stressful to download videos directly from their official site, but today I will be teaching you some methods you can use to get your videos downloaded without any form of stress no matter how small.
However, you should understand that using third-party apps to download videos available on YouTube is against their terms of service. You can check out their terms of service.
From the terms of service you can understand why their decision was taken, but I also understand it might be painful sometimes when you loose your data or network signal when you are halfway through a tutorial, movie or any video, and I have come with various ways to get youtube videos downloaded on your device such as your Android, iPhone/iPad, Macbook or windows computers, so feel free to watch this video to the very end.

Vidmate allows you to download videos directly from Youtube, not only videos you can also download apk files or apps, music files and even surf the internet with this app, the app is embed with app store and inbuilt web browser to do your surfing. You are also allowed to watch or stream the video on this app without downloading, it is a great app with nice interface.
However, the app is no longer on Play store (it was at first available on the android app store) and it has been tagged as unsafe, however this is not true. The reason why it was tagged harmful is simple, this is because, the app allows complete download of content from Youtube and you should know that Youtube is a property owned by google and since you have download video from the app, you have cut the advert revenue Youtube gets from watching video over and over again, and this is the reason google is trying to discourage the use of this app.
However, this app is not available on ios and windows devices and the app developer claims to be working on it.
Other apps with the similar functions include Tubemate and lost more.
