Downloading YouTube Videos offline is a great hack. I personally do a lot of travelling and am often without an internet connection. So with the ability to download YouTube videos, I can still watch my favourite videos, or I can download kids entertainment shows to keep them happy on the go.

Is it Illegal?

Downloading videos is not illegal, however, please ensure this is for your own personal use and use these methods at your own risk. You can also check YouTubes terms of service for further information.

YouTube also have their own premium service where you can watch videos ad-free and offline, however there is a charge for this.
