    Downloading Youtube Videos

    I am new to this forum, so I am pretty sure this must have been discussed already. In December I got my first Tablet - Galaxy Tab (Tab 3 10.1).

    I have now tried various youtube downloaders, but none of them work. The one I almost got to work, was Droid Youtube Downloader. I downloaded a couple of vids, but then suddenly it stopped working (I just get an error eveytime I try to download).

    I have Googled, and tried various apps, but none of them work.


    Can you maybe point me to a link (if already discussed), or perhaps advise me ? I have given up now, trying to find one that works.

    Welcome to the forum

    You found one that worked so you should try to get it to work again. Try uninstalling that app, restart the tab and install it again.

    Welcome to the forum Colt. I agree with my esteemed colleague, Leeshor, about reinstalling the downloader. With these devices, it's amazing how effective either reboots or reinstallations can be!

    If that doesn't work - & the app may have stopped working because of a change at the YouTube end, then try Tubemate - which is available on the Amazon AppStore. It won't be on the Play Store as Google (who own YouTube) for some reason don't like you downloading on Android devices - but they don't actually prohibit or prevent it as far as I am aware.

    Thank you very much for responding. Unfortunately I tried Tubemate, and it was worse than Droid Youtube Downloader.

    Let me see if I can find a list of the ones I tried, so I can at least share the list with you guys.

    I noticed that you can, most of the time, download to a PC or Laptop, but not a mobile device. My own guess is - lets allow download to PC's, because they are not portable, and thus not to easy to share. But mobile things now become to easy to share (and copyright "leakage" goes up exponensialy) .... does this make sense ?

    Many of my friends say, "I can't open your video". The I say, "try your PC". And then it works.

    I am guessing it has something to do with mobility. And this will probably change in future, cause technology is changing very quickly.
