Watching videos is one of the most popular ways of spending free time on the Internet. Every day millions of people visit popular sites like YouTube and gigabytes of new videos are added. Some people wonder how to download videos from youtube. There are some sites on the Internet, which make it possible to download the video in various file formats. There are also some programs that can be installed on the computer. The usage of these programs is very simple. When you want to download from youtube, you have to give to the converter the link to the particular video which should be downloaded. The next step is the choice of the file format. You can download youtube mp4, avi, flv – of course if you want to have it as a video. When only the audio is important, the file can also be downloaded in an mp3 format – without the video, only the audio. The size of this file is then much smaller than the viedo format. It is also compressed. Remember to check whether your video player supports the particular file format.
