Why Download YouTube Videos?

In 2020 we witnessed a vastly growing trend: more and more content is being removed from the Internet.

Accounts, videos and posts are being blocked on regular basis. It appears that platforms including YouTube, Facebook and Twitter collaborate in order to prevent certain types of content from being published, or becoming viral.

For this and other reasons, you may like to download YouTube videos locally to your computer (or to your private cloud, etc.).
