      Hey Shakir,
      Why you are not trying the Vidmate? For me, it’s working fine. Well, if you are a crazy fan of Tubemate, then uninstall it and try with their latest version.

          Hello Chandan,
          Tubemate not available in Google Play Store. You need to download this app from their official website http://tubemate.net/ and install on your device manually. Vidmate is also same, not available in Google play Store and you need to download from their official website.

    Hi Manik,
    Thanks for the excellent post about best YouTube video downloader apps.
    But my question is, if I can download videos directly from YouTube why I’ll use any 3rd party app? Yes, you can also download any videos from YouTube using the following steps.
    Open any web browser on your Android phone or tablet and open the YouTube
    Click on any videos to download
    Go to the address bar and add ss before m.youtube.com/something
    And press enter, you will redirect to a website where you can download videos from YouTube with your desired video quality.

      Hello Jason,

      Thanks for your valuable opinion. I’m also using your described technique to download videos from YouTube using my Laptop. I Think this technique little bit hard for newbies as well as mobiles users.

      However, again thanks for stopping by.

    Hello Fakharuddin,
    These are really excellent apps to download videos or movies from YouTube. I’m the old fan of VidMate. This is really a cool app with various features. The download speed also good.
    However, recently I tried to the Save Video option that is available on the Official YouTube Android App. That method also works good for me.

      Hey Emily,
      Thanks for your awesome comment. You are right, with the latest YouTube App, anyone can save videos for offline. But the problem is, most of the videos are not available for Offline Saving option. So, you must need a 3rd party app like VidMate or TubeMate to download them and that’s why we have listed these YouTube Downloader apps here. Hope you understand.

    I’m surprised that Vuclip is not in your list.
    The app also works good for downloading videos from YouTube and it’s free.

    I’m using online converter https://www.ytbmp3.com with direct YouTube search. It fastest of all applications.

      Hey Milica,
      We are taking here about downloading videos from YouTube that means download anything from Youtube with video format like MP4. But you are talking about MP3 that means music file, not video 🙁

    At first, I would like to thank Manik for such an awesome list of Android YouTube Downloader Apps.
    I’m using the TubeMate and already used some other YouTube downloader like Videoder, VidMate, SnapTube, etc. But never used InsTube, is anyone here who use this app?

      Hello Ellen,
      Thanks for stopping by. As a new app, InsTube is also good enough for downloading videos from YouTube with various resolution. Using this app, you can also directly download YouTube Videos as MP3 Music files, so you don’t need extra converter app to convert video files into music files. The app also can download multiple files at a time and works good with slow internet connection.

    Hi, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your blog site in Safari, it looks fine but
    when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, wonderful blog!

      Hello Brianne,
      It looks like you are using an old version of Internet Explorer browser. I just check it with the latest version of IE and it’s fine.

    Cool post with best recommendation 🙂

    Thanks for sharing Manik

    Hi Manik,
    I always download YouTube videos on my PC using this following technique.
    write ss before youtube and press enter to start download.
    Is this method works on Android phone?
    Actually I don’t want to use any of these app as they are not available in the Google Play Store.

    • Avatar

      Hello Mihir,
      Actually when you add ss before YouTube Video URL it will redirect you to savefrom.net and you can save YouTube video through the site. This is pretty good for PC but not for mobile. You need to browse YouTube from a mobile browser, copy the video URL and paste it on the savefrom.net because most of time you won’t redirect automatically when add ss before the URL from a mobile browser like Chrome. On the other hand, you can install any of the above YouTube Video Downloader app where you will find built-in option for searching videos on YouTube. You can open it and tap on the download button/icon for downloading that video.

      And the app that not available in the Google Play store that not mean that it will harm your device or something fishy. These apps not available in the Google Play store because of Google Play Store and YouTube policy. 🙂

        I know buddy how much it good for both PC and mobile. You are telling this because you are promoting these video downloader apps 😛

          I’m not the owner of any of these apps nor affiliated with them. Even none of them paid me a single penny for including their app in this list. I make and publish this post to solve my reader’s problem.

    I would like to recommend “Save from Net”. This is also pretty awesome app for downloading videos from YouTube. You can add it on your list, hope your reader will enjoy it.
