Top 15 Ways To Download YouTube Video or Audio

Today in the YouTube channel we can find millions of high-quality videos and very practical marketing courses and any other discipline, with which we can learn every day, but to do this we always depend on having an Internet connection enough good to be able to watch these YouTube videos.

It is for that reason that I thought it would be very useful to compile an article the different tools and resources with which to download YouTube videos easily, and then copy these videos that we have downloaded to other devices and can easily reproduce them from any mobile device (Smartphone or Tablet) or our own television.

This can also be especially useful when we go on a trip and we want to take these videos with us, or for example when we have a long plane trip of many hours and we want to take advantage of that trip to play the videos that we have downloaded from YouTube.

Also some of these resources or tools will be useful to download videos from other channels similar to YouTube
