F.A.Q. & Self-Help

do you download youtube videos on a regular basis?

Stay away from software that promises to "save" or "download" videos from YouTube.

Rather use these steps:

  1. Open YouTube and find the video you want to save/download
  2. Select the address of the video (example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n2BtP-JODio)
  3. Add the letters "ss" between the "." and the "y" (example: https://www.ssyoutube.com/watch?v=n2BtP-JODio)
  4. Press "Enter" > Youtube should redirect to a website called SafeFrom.net
  5. In the middle of the safefrom page, select the quality of the video and click download.

A few notes on saving/downloading YouTube videos:

  • Be weary of installing software that will download YouTube videos. Experience proved that 9 times out of 10, these come with some nasty unwanted "surprises"
  • When downloading YouTube videos make sure you are not breaking the law when using them. If unsure - check with the content owner
