Google does not want you and I to download videos from YouTube so it could get frequent views from us. Hence, there is no App in the Google Play Store that could help you download a YouTube video. To download a video, we will use an app called TubeMate which will be downloaded not from Google Play Store.
Let’s follow the steps below to download the TubeMate app first;
Open your web browser and go to www.tubemate.net , you will be presented with sites where you can download the app from.
Tap any of the websites. To save time, we will download from the first site(uptodown).
Tap the download button.( It has green colour)
At this stage, you may be asked to select the browser you would like to use for the downloading of the app. If so, just select the current browser you are using to make the process simple. You can choose any other browser and it will still work.
You may get a prompt asking you to either cancel the process or go to settings and allow download from unknown source. Tap SETTINGS.
Slide the toggle button to the right side to allow download from unknown source. If yours is not a slider then it will probably be a box. Make sure you check it and tap ok. ( please after the process make sure you turn it off for security reasons)
After the settings, go back and press Install.
Tap Done at the bottom. You have finished the downloading and installing of TubeMate.
Now that we have finished installing the app, let’s follow the steps below to download a video on YouTube;
Open the TubeMate app.
Open YouTube within the app. Mostly, it is already opened.
Locate the video you want to download and press/tap on it. (If you can’t find the video after scrolling for a long time, type the name of the video into the search box and press the search button)
There will be a down-pointing arrow(mostly with a red background) , press it.
Choose the quality of the video you want to download by pressing it. From the top to the down are the quality levels. Meaning, the one above is of high quality than the one below it. When the quality of the video you selected is very high, you may be warned. Just press OK.
If you are prompted to download the MP3 Video Converter, follow the prompts to install it. It works on the audio part of the download.
After downloading the video, it will now be stored on your phone and can even be found in your video player App.
