HOW TO TRANSFER YOUTUBE VIDEOS TO YOUR IPAD OR IPHONE

Once you have completing downloaded the video via Clipgrab, you can now transfer the video to your iOS device.

STEPS

  • Connect the device to your computer and launch iTunes.
  • Click on the iPad or iPhone symbol in the top right corner of the iTunes window to get the device overview screen.

Transfer video without synchronizing your iTunes library
If you don’t want to synchronize your iTunes library with the iPad in order to transfer the downloaded video, scroll down and enable the option “Manually manage music and videos”. After you have enabled this setting, choose “On This iPad/iPhone” on top of the iTunes window. Then click on “Add to …” on the top right. Another screen will appear and you can now drag any video from your library or downloads folder directly onto the right part of the iTunes window where the labels “Music” and “Movies” are. The video will then be transferred and you can enjoy watching it on your iPad or iPhone whenever you like 🙂

UMMY

youtube video downloader ummy

Ummy Video Downloader is a YouTube video downloader where you access videos offline. It’s simple and easy to use, in part because it doesn’t offer a very broad range of features. Once you download Umi on your computer or laptop, you then open up the app and paste the URL of a YouTube video into its field. The video’s thumbnail will pop up after a moment and it will begin downloading. You can choose to save your files as MP4 format videos, MP3 audio, MKV, FLV, MOV or AVI, covering all the basic options most of us are familiar with. If it’s a video file, you can specify the resolution in order to keep the file size manageable. Adding multiple files to the downloader creates a queue of videos that will be downloaded in order.

Ummy works on these browsers: Mozilla, Safari, Yandex, Chrome and Opera.

Ummy Video Downloader  is a simple, light software that will not add any very heavy demands on your computer. However, this simplicity also means that hardcore videophiles may feel that it lacks some options they were hoping for. If you have a lot of files you want to download, the process can be a little slow; its videos download sequentially rather than simultaneously. It doesn’t offer a huge range of options for file format (although it does cover all of the most likely options), so if you want to convert a video into a different format you’ll need other video editing software. If you want to download a Youtube video playlist, you’ll have to do it one video at a time — Ummy will only take the video currently playing.

TIP: When downloading Ummi, watch out  additional downloads bundled with this program. Choose the right options during installation so that you don’t end up with unwanted software components like browser toolbars or a new default search engine. These aren’t malware per se, but they’re a nuisance nonetheless.

CLIP CONVERTER CC

If you are like me who do not like installing anything on my laptop or desktop computer, one of the best tools is Clip Converter.

Clip Converter does not work for Youtube videos containing music.

CAUTION: It will open a new window on your browser asking you to download other software. Close that window and do not download anything.

I tested it with a Youtube video containing an interview with a watch duration of 12.5 minutes. The test Youtube video file size was 100 mb according to Clip Converter tool and it took around 18 minutes to download at 0.82mbps. I used Speedtest to know the download speed of my internet connection from a public library.

TUBEMATE

TubeMate is one of the most popular tool for downloading YouTube videos on Android smartphones, and with good reason: it’s really easy to use and has great features. Tubemate app isn’t available on the Google Play Store (Google isn’t too keen on YouTube downloaders), so first of all you’ll need to allow your Android device to install and run apps downloaded from other places. Be cautious when you turn on this setting, as you’ll want to make sure you only downloaded apps you know are safe and reliable.

Open up Settings and go to Security. Scroll down and next to where it says ‘Unknown sources’, tap the toggle to turn this setting on. Now, on your Android device visit the TubeMate YouTube Downloader website and select one of the verified sites to download it from.

DOCUMENTS by Reedle

Documents is a file manager, but it also happens to be able to download YouTube video clips too. The process is a little fiddly but still straightforward. First of all, find the clip you want to download in the YouTube app for iOS or in Safari. Once you’ve found it, tap the Share icon and then Copy Link.

Then you need to open Documents and look for its web browser icon, which is the little compass at the bottom right of the display. Tap on that and go to “save from net”. Paste the address of the YouTube clip in the big input box, choose the quality options you prefer and the file will start to download.

When it’s finished it’ll appear in Documents’ downloads section, from which you can drag it over Photos > Camera Roll so it’s available from outside the Documents app.

MAC X
