Youtube is a great way to watch videos for free. But it requires a permanent connection to the Internet… Download Youtube video can quickly become mandatory if you need to save your bandwidth, or to store and watch your videos on multiple devices (PC, laptop, smartphone, tablet, etc.). I deliver here the most complete list of free Youtube video converters on the web !

What I like about Airy YouTube Downloader is that you can download videos according to your needs, pause and resume at will. Not to mention that with this software, the playlist is automatically saved… and you can also take private videos on YouTube. And I love it !
A fast and well-functioning service to download Youtube video
This service converts the entire Youtube video (not just the soundtrack). We will appreciate the simplicity of use and the pleasant ergonomics of the website. In addition, it is possible to choose the recording format of the Youtube video :
- mp4 in 360p or 480p quality
- webm in 360p quality
- 3gp in 144p or 240p quality
- flv in 240p quality
- mp3 in high quality
Note that Telechargerunevideo.com also allows you to download videos from Dailymotion and Vimeo for free. Thanks to this service you will be able to download videos of tutorials on how to use CRM for free for example.
Contrary to what its name suggests, this converter is not limited to Youtube videos. In fact, Telecharger-videos-youtube.com even supports an impressive number of video distribution platforms such as arte.tv, BaiduVideo, BBC, Break, CNN, Dailymotion, play.fm, Vimeo, etc. See the complete list by clicking here.
Note that Telecharger-videos-youtube.com offers a very convenient service to download a complete and free Youtube playlist. So it is one of our favorite services to download Youtube video.
fr.savefrom.net is a complete service for downloading Youtube videos or other websites such as Facebook, vk.com, Soundcloud, etc. Note the compatibility with a large number of Russian platforms.
This Youtube video download service offers several operating modes :
- by copying / pasting the URL of the video on their website like most other services
- by adding the suffix savefrom.net/ or sfrom.net/ in front of the video URL directly in the navigation bar of your web browser (Google Chrome, Firefox, Edge, etc.)
- by using shortened domain names such as ssyoutube.com
- or by downloading software on your computer (Windows compatible only) that will add a « Download » button at the bottom of each Youtube video
Finally, Savefrom.net offers a system to earn money on the Internet for its webmasters partners with sites with at least 10,000 visitors per day.
Youtube Clipconverter.cc converter
ClipConverter allows you to download videos from Youtube and Dailymotion.
One interesting thing about this converter is that it allows you to choose the format for exporting music, where other services are limited to mp3 :
In addition to the classic conversion system by pasting the url of the youtube video to download, ClipConverter offers its plugins (or addons / extensions) for Google Chrome, Firefox and Safari web browsers. It seems that this service to download Youtube video is having problems with Internet Explorer (newly Edge). Plugins are of course free.
Youtube Downloader HD
Youtube Downloader HD is not an online Youtube video conversion service, unlike the other Youtube video download sites we have seen.
It is imperatively a software to download and install free of charge on your Windows or MAC computer.
This Youtube video download service aims to distinguish itself from its competitors by focusing on downloading HD (High Definition) videos.
Youtube Downloader HD allows you to download Youtube videos in either AVI or MP4 format.
As its name suggests, this converter allows you to download Youtube videos to your PC. It offers the following conversion and recording formats : AVI, MP3, MOV, MP4, FLV, MOV, MOV, WEV, MPEG.
Note that they have developed a plugin for WordPress that allows webmasters to insert Youtube videos on their website and have a download button next to it. Unfortunately, this plugin is not available on the official WordPress website, you have to download it from the Force-download.net website.
Moreover, we regret the too strong presence of ads (including popups…) on their website, but isn’t that the price of free ? :)
If you like Youtube-mp3.com, then you will love the Youtube mp3 Youzik converter even more !
Indeed, this Youtube music download service offers an attractive website, a simple and even faster mega service because you don’t have to wait until the video is converted to start downloading.
This saves you time because conversion and downloading are simultaneous.
In addition, their website lists the most downloaded Youtube videos of the week, useful if you are short of ideas !
Finally, Youzik offers a free addon (plugin or extension) for Google Chrome and Firefox.
The particularity of this Youtube video converter is that it offers the download of the video in the original format, i.e. without conversion.
You can therefore download the Youtube video without any loss of quality (be careful however with the size of some files…).
In addition, Fluvore.com offers to send you an email with a link to download the free Youtube video when the conversion is complete. Convenient if the service takes time and you can’t stay connected !
Flvto.biz offers you the possibility to convert Youtube videos to mp3 directly online, or to download Youtube videos for free by installing their free software on your PC (Windows and Mac compatible). Flvto.biz also provides users with a plugin for Google Chrome.
Flvto.biz publishes on its website an interesting TOP 100 of the most downloaded and converted mp3s.
Youtube-mp3.org – Music
Unfortunately this service does not seem to have been available for several years now…
I love this service ! It is really fast and very easy to use. Copy and paste the url of the Youtube video on their website and a few moments later, download the soundtrack.
Nothing to install, no publicity, only happiness :)
Note that this Youtube converter is only useful for music, because it does not allow you to download Youtube video itself. But if you only need the music, why download a large video file when the soundtrack is enough ?
