YouTube Now Al­lows Malaysian Users to Save Videos Off­line

HWM (Malaysia) - - TELEPORT -

Don't you just hate it when while watch­ing a video on YouTube, the video pauses be­cause the stream­ing speed is slow? Don't you also hate hav­ing to stream YouTube videos with your mo­bile data? Well, Google is aware of this, which is why they are fi­nally giv­ing Malaysian users the op­tion to save their videos off­line, sim­ply by down­load­ing them for later view­ing.

The op­tion, which seems to only be avail­able for mo­bile users on the An­droid and iOS plat­form, seems to be a bit of a pre­emp­tive on Google, as not all peo­ple have ac­cess to high-speed In­ter­net, or even have data plans or con­nec­tions that are ca­pa­ble of stream­ing high def­i­ni­tion videos.

"We want to make sure we are mak­ing YouTube as en­joy­able as pos­si­ble for our grow­ing base of mo­bile users in Malaysia. By launch­ing a new off­line fea­ture for YouTube, we hope to help peo­ple move past the chal­lenges of data con­nec­tion, speed and cost to en­joy a smooth, buf­fer-free ver­sion of YouTube," said John Harding, Vice Pres­i­dent of En­gi­neer­ing, YouTube.

To save a video for off­line play­back, users sim­ply need to tap on the off­line icon that ap­pears just below the video, and then choose the video qual­ity that they would like to save for later view­ing. Be ad­vised, how­ever, that once you down­load it, you'll only be able watch it off­line for a pe­riod of only 48 hours.
