How to Download YouTube Video to Mobile

By LisaHicks

YouTube is a popular video website that allows users to watch videos from around the world. Users no longer need to be confined to the computer to enjoy the videos; they can download the videos to watch on the go as well. Downloading YouTube videos is usually not allowed except for two instances: when a "Click to Buy" or "Download Your Own Videos MP4" option is available. The "Click to Buy" feature is in the testing phase, while "Download Your Own Videos MP4" is currently available for use.
