How to Download YouTube Videos in Chrome with Tampermonkey
If you want to download YouTube videos in Chrome, you might be disappointed to find out that Google doesn't allow YouTube downloaders in the Chrome Web Store. However, there is a workaround that lets you use a script manager called Tampermonkey to install a user-created script that can download YouTube videos in Chrome, without redirecting you to another site. This script also works in Edge and Firefox, if you install Tampermonkey in those browsers. Here's how to use Tampermonkey to download YouTube videos in Chrome.
Step 1: Install Tampermonkey
Tampermonkey is a browser extension that lets you run thousands of user-created scripts that perform various web tasks. To install Tampermonkey in Chrome, go to this link and click \"Add to Chrome\". Then, click \"Add extension\" to confirm.
Step 2: Install Local YouTube Downloader
Local YouTube Downloader is a script that adds a download button below every YouTube video. To install Local YouTube Downloader, go to this link and click \"Install this script\". Then, click \"Install\" to confirm.
Step 3: Download YouTube Videos in Chrome
Now, whenever you visit a YouTube video page, you will see a download button below the video player. Click on it and choose the format and quality you want to download. You can download videos in MP4 or WEBM formats, and audio in M4A or WEBM formats. The download will start automatically using your browser's download manager.
Disclaimer: Is Downloading YouTube Videos Legal
Before you start downloading YouTube videos in Chrome, you should be aware of the legal implications. YouTube states in its Terms of Service that you're not allowed to download any content, unless \"specifically permitted by the Service,\" or have prior written permission from YouTube or the respective rights holder. You can download videos through the YouTube app for Android and iOS by paying $11.99 per month for YouTube Premium, but this option isn't offered on the YouTube website.
Video downloaders aren't illegal, but making copies of copyrighted content is. At the very least, your YouTube account could be terminated if you repeatedly violate the site's terms of service, and you may even face legal action. However, there's lots of content on YouTube that is permissible to download, such as public domain videos that aren't copyrighted, clips covered by a Creative Commons license, and homemade videos that friends and family have shared with you (and have permitted you to download).
Therefore, you should only use Tampermonkey and Local YouTube Downloader to download YouTube videos in Chrome for personal use and with permission from the content owner. We do not condone or encourage any illegal or unethical use of this tool. aa16f39245
