A few months back, I asked my Twitter followers if they wanted to see a quick video tutorial on how to download a Clickfunnels video using their smart phones. The answer was a resounding ‘Yes!’ and so I decided to make a YouTube video tutorial to walk them through the process step-by-step.

Before we begin, I want to address a few things. First, this tutorial will only show you how to download a video on your smart phones. You might also be interested in watching a video on your laptop or desktop. For that matter, any device you use to access YouTube will work just fine. This tutorial is not meant for enterprise apps or other platforms. Also, this tutorial does not cover all the legal aspects of downloading and sharing copyrighted material (e.g., music and videos). With that said, let’s get started.

Step 1: Find the Video You Want To Download

Videos uploaded to YouTube can be downloaded through the YouTube app or through the browser. To view the video you want to download, simply search for it on the search bar. Once the video load, you can click the downward-facing triangle next to the video’s title to see more information about it. This will also bring up a menu where you can choose to either download the video or watch it on YouTube. If you choose to download it, you can click the YouTube logo to return to the video’s channel.

Step 2: On Your Mobile Phone, Open the YouTube App

If you decide to download the video from YouTube, tap on the magnifying glass icon at the top right of the screen. This will open up the app, which you can use to search for videos, browse through popular content, or follow various topics and channels.

From here, you can also select which videos you want to download by tapping on the video’s thumbnails or searching for keywords in the video’s content. To start the download, tap on the video’s thumbnail or tap on the word ‘Start’ in the video’s content.

Step 3: Wait For The Download To Complete

While the video is downloading, you will notice a small spinning wheel icon in the status bar at the bottom of your screen. This means the app is searching for faster ways to download the file. When the download is finished, you will see a small notification at the top of your screen. Additionally, you can also check the progress of the download by going to your phone’s Settings and then to the Apps tray. There, you will see a small ‘Youtube’ icon with a spinning wheel.

Step 4: Repeat Steps 1-3 For More Videos

If you want to download multiple videos from YouTube, you can either repeat steps 1-3 for each video individually or use a tool like YouTube Unclogger. This tool allows you to download up to 50 videos at a time. Simply follow the steps above to find the first video you want to download, then click on the ‘+’ button to add another video to your queue. After you’ve added all the videos you want to download, click on the white arrow next to the blue text to start the download process.

Step 5: Once The Video Is Downloaded, Open The App’s Settings

When the download is finished, open the YouTube app’s settings by tapping on the three lines icon at the top right of the screen. Here, you can choose what to do with downloaded videos. You can choose to either view them immediately or put them into a folder for later reference.

Step 6: Play It Backward To Watch It Faster

While there are many great things about YouTube, one of its greatest features is that you can fast-forward through videos you’ve already watched. To play a video you’ve already watched backward, simply press and hold the pause button on your remote (while the video is playing) then press play when you’re happy with where the video is paused. This will make it easier to find the right spot and fast-forward through the video you want to watch again.

Why Do I Need To Be Careful With Copyright?

There are many great reasons why you might want to be careful with copyrighted material. First, if you use copyrighted material without permission, you risk being sued by the copyright holder. Second, even if you’re not breaking any rules, it’s still considered bad practice to post copyrighted material without permission. Lastly, you run the risk of your copyrighted material being edited out of a publication or channel if you’re not careful. In other words, your video could be taken out of the context of the article or channel and used elsewhere or in a different context altogether. This could result in legal consequences.

More Great Videos To Check Out

As mentioned above, the answer to my original question on Twitter was ‘Yes!’ and since then, I’ve made a few other videos on how to download clips from YouTube. If you want to see these videos or want to find out more, please feel free to check them out.

Additionally, I’ve been asked by a few people whether or not I keep any of the videos on my YouTube channel. The answer is ‘Yes!’ I do and I even update my channels’ descriptions to note that the videos are copyrighted material. If you’re interested, please feel free to check out my videos (and credit me as the creator if you include my channel’s name in your description).

The Final Step

Now that you have a video you want to download, you have two options. You can either copy the URL from the browser’s address bar (found by clicking the upward-facing triangle at the top right of the screen) or you can use the YouTube app’s built-in sharing features. If you chose to copy the URL, you can then paste it into a new tab or browser window to begin the download.

For my money, the YouTube app is second to none when it comes to quickly and easily sharing videos with friends and family. If you want to see a video you posted on YouTube, you can use the app’s built-in features to play it for you friends and family (and even make them laugh). Plus, the app makes it easy to share videos with your followers on other platforms like Twitter and Facebook.

To conclude, let me emphasize how grateful I am to my Twitter followers for helping to make this video tutorial possible. For that matter, I would be remiss if I didn’t also thank my wife for tolerating my frequent YouTube watching as I worked on this tutorial.
