There are billions of hours of Seasons, Episodes, Cast, Characters video on YouTube. Literally. And that is hardly the most surprising statistic about the site, which has been the go-to destination for uploading and watching the video since 2005. But that said, sometimes, you really just want or need to have one of those videos on your own computer or phone.
When the topic of downloading YouTube videos comes up, there is a side question that must be raised: Is it legal?
When it comes to copyright, as long as you are downloading a video for your own personal offline use, you are probably okay. It is more black and white when you consider Google’s terms of service for YouTube, which reads: “You shall not download any Content unless you see a ‘download’ or similar link displayed by YouTube on the Service for that Content.”
After all, watching YouTube videos offline through unofficial channels takes money out of Google’s pocket and the wallets of the video creators. There’s a reason YouTube runs pre-roll ads: people make a living that way. The video below from Video Creators explains it; it references YouTube Red, which is now YouTube Premium, but the legal issues remain the same.
Let’s be clear: stealing the video from YouTube is a big no-no. If you want to share a video, YouTube and most other video sites make it easy, from embedding to emailing to sharing via social networks. You simply do not need to download a video most of the time.
However, you have your reasons. If you must download a YouTube video—absolutely need to, just for yourself, and not for distribution.
