The 3 Top Choices to Save and Watch YouTube Videos Offline
1. PowerDVD by Cyberlink
PowerDVD's video playback remains the best in its class thanks to its TrueTheater enhancements, which can be applied to YouTube videos you watch through the software.
You can watch YouTube channels in up to 8K within PowerDVD or download videos for offline viewing. Let's take a look at how easy it is to enjoy all your favorite YouTube videos wherever and whenever you want.
How to Watch YouTube Videos Offline on PC
The PowerDVD “Pin” feature makes streaming and watching videos from platforms like YouTube and Vimeo as easy as a click of the mouse.
Follow these three simple steps:
- From the home screen, go to “PC Mode” (the other option, “TV Mode,” is fantastic as well, but not what we're talking about today!). On the left side dropdown menu, you'll see an option to open “Online Videos.”
- Go to your platform of choice (you can sign in directly from PowerDVD), and once you've found the video you're looking for, hit the ‘Pin' icon.
- You'll get your choice of file size, and when the downloading is complete, your video will be in the “Pinned Videos” tab, ready to watch offline.
That's it. PowerDVD makes it simple to build an offline YouTube video library. Download it today to start your collection.
2. 4K Video Downloader
If you're looking for a Mac solution to watching YouTube videos offline, unfortunately, PowerDVD is not an option for you. However, 4K Video Downloader would be a great choice for you.
Downloading the software is simple and straightforward.
3. ByClick Downloader
The ByClick Downloader plug-in has made a name for itself with its auto-detect feature, which finds a video on a webpage for you as soon as you arrive and automatically offers you the choice to download it. This works for individual videos and also for entire playlists or channels.
Be aware this is not a playback software like PowerDVD and 4K Video Downloader. This means you will need a separate program to watch your videos.

If you want to enjoy YouTube videos anytime you want, PowerDVD is hands down your best option. It's also the leading media player for any file format from DVD and Blu-ray to 8K and MKV. Download it for free and see what you've been missing.
