YouTube has billions of videos, while you can stream all of them, you might want some on your own computer for personal offline use, or for a future project.


If you want to download a YouTube video onto your computer, you'd have to use third-party services. Luckily, there are multiple choices that will let you do this. Today I will discuss with you on how to download any youtube video using VLC media player.


VLC Player is a free media software that lets you watch videos or play music from your Mac or PC. It's one of the best media players in the world today, there's even a chance you might already have it installed on your computer.


Although this method take few minutes, you can use it to download any YouTube video.

Observe these steps closely to download any youtube video using the vlc media player.


1. Search the video you want to download off YouTube and copy its URL.


2. Open VLC media player on your windows desktop, and click "Media" in the menu section, and then "Open Network Stream." If you're on a Mac, go-to "File" at the top, and then Select "Open Network."


3. In the pop-up menu that appears, paste the link of the YouTube video that you copied, and then click "Play" or "Open" at the bottom.


4. After sometime, the YouTube video you want will start playing. Videos with longer length might take long to open.

The video will download in .MP4 format. You can rename it, or move it to any location of your choice.
