2: Download YouTube videos online
How can I download YouTube videos on Chrome? Use an online video downloader if you have the same question. You can download a YouTube video online without installing software. After clicking “Download,” you’ll likely see many adverts or be sent to another page, in my experience. You may face various troubles when utilising the online tool. My problems were:
The website couldn’t find the media files after processing the link.
After clicking “Download,” I was led to a page requiring a video downloader programme.
I was taken to a shopping page after pasting the URL and clicking “Download.”
The video downloader took a long time to examine the video address, then stated “Failed to analyse video links!”
If you don’t mind these cons, you can save YouTube videos on your laptop.
As an example, I’ll use YouTube Video Downloader.
Step 1. Visit the online YouTube video downloader in Chrome or another browser.
