Download and keep videos from YouTube and Facebook
Backing up videos from Facebook and YouTube is quick and easy. Make sure you don’t lose the things you want to watch!
Nothing lasts forever, even on the Internet. Videos, in particular, can be annoyingly transient, there one minute and gone the next.
If there’s something online that you can’t bear to be without – or if you simply want to archive it for posterity, or entertain the kids with a favourite YouTube hit when you’re away from a solid Internet connection – then you’ll need to download it. We’ll start by using the excellent Freemake Video Downloader, and check out a couple of other useful tools too.
But first, a quick note about what we’re doing here. Downloading online videos isn’t, technically, illegal, but it often goes against individual terms and conditions. Redistributing anything you download for personal use would certainly be a breach of copyright. As long as you’re careful to keep anything you download to yourself, there shoudn’t be a problem. Let’s get started, shall we?
