Saving Youtube video’s to your computer

We had someone asking how to save a Youtube video to their computer so here are a couple of ways you can do this. There are a lot of third part sites that enable this and we have listed 2 below to give you an idea.

First, find the Youtube video that you want to save to your computer.
Next, in the URL (the website address in the address bar) insert “dl” or “ss” in front of “youtube”
Eg: https://www.ssyoutube.com/watch?v=5XuE1DsLKgE or https://www.dlyoutube.com/watch?v=5XuE1DsLKgE
This will take you to a third party website where you can download the video to your computer. Simply choose the file type and resolution that you would like to download the video in and download.

There are browser extension you can install as well so you can download the video’s with a simple click of a button, but these are simple and can be used with any browser.
