Like many of you I frequently watch and learn plenty of good techniques by watching U-Tube vids.
Unfortunately, I now do my service / repairs in a location which is out of range of my wi-fi.
I now want to be able to down-load a vid onto my pc, so that I can take the pc to the car with me and step my way thru the vid.
I guess it must be easy ( ?????? ).
You can guess that I have no kids.
Your help would be greatly-appreciated.
Thanks.
John

Google 'free YouTube rip' or 'YouTube downloaded.

There are quite a few free online websites that provide this.

Watch them on your phone? My WiFi reaches out onto my garden.

YouTube Premium allows you to legit download them, Using a dodgy downloader you are preventing the content creators from getting views. Views = £££

I just have a folder in my browser that I save my favourite yt videos to and watch them at any time, using wi fi if outside.
No need to download the content then.

Thanks Markjay.
I'll give it a go.
Thanks KHz ... But I don't use a smart-phone.
I'll take the pc out and put it on the seat as I work.

I found this program on the net:
"HD Video Converter Factory".
It was a bit complicated to get it to work.
However - I've now downloaded three U-Tube videos and stored them in MP4 mode in locations on my pc.
It hasn't raised any virus issues (always a risk downloading unknown software).
I'm quite pleased with the results - Given my limited IT skills.

One of the vids is the dreaded "Bouncing Lock" repair video.
You can see why I needed to take a copy of the vid out to the car.
That's a bit of fun that I have to tackle soon.
I've purchased the spring repair kit.
I'm just plucking up my courage to start.
