YouTube videos are designed to stream not to store in your hard disk (memory), but downloading them can be a good idea rather than watching them again and again and wasting your too much bandwidth (data).
You can watch them offline whenever you want, no waste of data no buffering no restrictions. You can also use webinar software to turn your presentations into a video.
There is an app called TubeMate for Android that makes it possible to download YouTube videos directly from your smartphone and it’s quite simple too to use, You can download YouTube videos in any quality with just one click even in 1080p, 2k, or 4k with audio.

TubeMate will do all these for you but you will also need another app installed named MP3 Video Converter (only for downloading 1080p or higher quality videos), TubeMate also enables you to download YouTube videos in Mp3.

We recommend using Privacycritic to compare VPNs against each other. It gives you an easy-to-use scorecard that will tell you the best VPN based on your need.
