Ripping from Youtube

Ripping from Youtube is so simple to do. If you would like to rip a YouTube video to your computer, you’ve got many online options.

You don’t have to bother with all that once you can quickly and effortlessly rip a YouTube video employing a software app most of the people have already got installed on their computer? If you want my opinion I will suggest the VLC Player.

This example has been done on a Mac OS laptop but the Windows method is extremely similar to do. The  steps are:

Step-9: By default, the video is going to be saved as video playback (without a format). So give your file a name and check out first with an mp4 format. If that doesn’t work, then try .avi.

Step-10: Your file will now be downloaded to your computer in the quality that the first uploader provided it in. So picture and audio quality will vary.

Guys, we guess after you count the steps you think 10 steps are too long and difficult to do. But nothing to worry about because it’s so easy and simple.
