Downloading HD videos from the biggest video-sharing platform has never been easier!
Viddly YouTube downloader Free Version supports any resolution up to 1080p. With Viddly Plus, you can download videos at any resolution offered by YouTube, including 4K and 8K. To ensure the smoothest possible playback, Viddly provides support for a frame rate of 24, 30, or 60 fps.
For complete immersion, Viddly allows spherical 360° videos to be downloaded and converted. You might want to consider using a VR device such as Google Cardboard for optimal playback.
You can convert any online video to MP4, WebM, 3GP, or AVI format. The conversion can be performed during the download or using the local file conversion feature if it is already on your hard drive.
Yes, you can! Viddly Free limits YouTube Live stream downloads to 5 minutes. Viddly Plus offers unlimited YouTube Live downloads without any restrictions whatsoever.
We recommend installing a cloud hosting service such as Dropbox, Google Drive, or OneDrive on both your computer and your phone. This way, any files downloaded to your synced folder will automatically be accessible on your phone.
Google Play nor the Apple Store will ever allow any application that could potentially be used to download copyright-protected video. As such, no publisher will be able to offer a functional app. Any app that actually allows YouTube downloads would be quickly removed by the moderation team. In other words, any app you might find in the official app store is a useless decoy created with the sole purpose of displaying ads to make a quick buck.
You might be able to root your iPhone or install a rogue APK on your Android phone, but doing so puts your security and privacy at risk. Virus scanners for mobile devices are not as advanced and widespread yet as for desktops, and hackers know this.
Your phone is where you store your naked selfies 😅. As such, we recommend you do not take any risks and do not disable any security mechanisms on your mobile device.
Excellent question! In fact, there are several good reasons. First of all, because websites use server resources. Server resources are not free. To keep the lights on, the website owner needs to either limit downloads of a certain length, restrict video quality, and/or use aggressive strategies for monetization.
Viddly runs on your computer, so we do not require expensive servers to power conversions. Since some of our users pay for Viddly Plus, we can feed our developers without resorting to shady tactics.
To summarize why Viddly is superior to websites such as KeepVid, Y2Mate, SaveMedia, YooDownload, FlvTo, YTMP3, or Youzik:
It's not illegal to download videos for personal use. In some cases, it might also be legal to download videos for commercial reasons, as long as those reasons are covered by 'fair use.' You may be breaking YouTube's Terms of Service by not using the download button they provide for specific videos. Still, we've never heard of anyone being banned or getting in trouble for this.
We believe that downloading content from video sharing website to watch it at another time or on a device without an Internet connection has the same purpose as timeshifting and should be considered fair use. This precedent was set in the Betamax case. As such, downloading non-copyrighted videos is entirely legal.
We recommend that you always request permission from the copyright holder to download any video that's not licensed under Creative Commons.
