Why can't I download YouTube videos anymore in 2018?

I'm unable to download YouTube videos using YouTube downloader. What should I do?

"Can't download YouTube videos" is a commonly-searched problem when users try to download videos from YouTube, due to the improper performance of the YouTube downloader. In this article, I'd like to explain why you can't download YouTube videos anymore with your YouTube downloader (Part 1) and how to successfully download YouTube videos with an alternative tool (Part 2), with which you can save YouTube videos to your computer or to your mobile devices, like iPhone and iPad, using the URL.


Part 1: Why can't you download YouTube videos anymore?

If you can't download YouTube videos ANYMORE, that's generally because YouTube is constantly improving their coding and site layout to prevent people from getting their videos for free. However, there are also other reasons why the YouTube downloader will not work properly:

  • Some paid videos may not be downloaded because of the copyright issue
  • The given URL cannot be recognized
  • Your YouTube downloader is not updated
  • Software like McAfee may interfere with the YouTube video downloader

If the download progress shows you 0% for a long time, it's probably because you have chosen the wrong format.
