3 Methods to Download YouTube Videos for Free: A Step-by-Step Guide

Basic YouTube has limited downloads for certain videos in specific locations, but here’s how to download any video anytime 
While basic YouTube only offers downloads for a few videos in selected locations, there are ways to download any YouTube video you want at any time.
Using a free ClipGrab
Your free option: ClipGrab 
ClipGrab remains my choice for easy, no-muss, no-fuss YouTube downloading. The only cost is putting up with a few upsell dialogs while you do so. 
Your paid option: YouTube Premium 
Individuals can subscribe to YouTube Premium for $13.99 a month (up $2 from what it was a few months ago). Students can subscribe for $7.99 a month. 
Linux command line options 
Linux users have a command line option (of course they do) to download YouTube videos. As with all-things Linux command line, there are some gray areas here. 
Be careful 
Downloading otherwise-protected videos is one of those gray-area categories where scammers like to play. Stick with the above recommendations because we’ve tried them, used them, and haven’t experienced any negative issues.
