Downloading YouTube Videos – is it possible?

Everyone knows that YouTube is promoting its “Premium” offering now, and it wants as many people as possible to use that. Why? Because it makes them money.

But there is a drawback: despite what many people think, downloading videos from YouTube isn’t possible from their website, even *if* you have a YouTube Premium subscription. So inevitably people are looking at other ways to download the YouTube source video for offline use.

Some reasons why people might want to download YouTube Videos are:

  • For educational purposes i.e. for your study
  • To make a backup or copy for safety reasons
  • To edit it and add it to another video that you’ve made
  • For many other “fair use” reasons not otherwise listed.

The easiest way that I have found to download YouTube Videos is to use a program like Viddly or DLYou.tube. They are Freemium – that means they are free to an extent. It’s not possible to use them completely for free but it depends on your usecase; for most users you won’t need to pay I suspect!

Websites like SaveFrom that promise ‘free’ YouTube video downloads always come with dodgy spyware or browser extensions. The disturbing thing here is that you DON’T KNOW what is inside them. They are not downloaded from places like the Play Store or from Chrome Webstore – that is very worrying.

All is not as it seems…

Why do websites like SaveFrom not use the Website or Mozilla Extensions website to promote their browser plugin? Because quite simply they don’t want the code (source) to be analyzed. It contains all sorts of dodgy things. I am going to post about my deep analysis of SaveFrom shortly, the results may shock you. Most surprising is that despite having millions of purported downloads, nobody seems to have spotted what they are doing!

Why did YouTube close my account?

If you have a website and you have been using YouTube as a method of driving traffic to your website, then you may want to take note. It would appear that Google – who have owned YouTube since late 2006 – are on a mission to clean up the internet by ridding it of spam and ensuring that all content created and published by webmasters is ‘useful’ to those who are reading it.

For many years, thousands upon thousands of people have been complaining that their YouTube accounts have been terminated with not so much as a warning, an explanation or any hope of getting them back. Today there seem to be no signs of things changing, as it is estimated that Google permanently deletes over 10,000 YouTube accounts every single day.

 

Why is this Happening?

Google’s official explanation for the sudden removal of accounts and uploaded videos is that such content is in violation of one or more of over a dozen different policies that they have created and enforced over the years. These policies have been designed and created in order to ensure that all videos uploaded are suitable for the YouTube audience.

As a result, all videos that are uploaded to the website are monitored in order to ensure that they do not violate any of these policies. Depending on the nature of the content of the video, it may be subject to further moderation and in many cases even manual review. YouTube account holders who upload too many videos that violate the strict policies will find that they are promptly banished from the website, and any subsequent accounts created afterwards – regardless of the actual content of the videos uploaded – will suffer from the same fate.

Ads From Companies Have Been Placed on Racist Videos on YouTube

A new report suggests that around 300 top companies are affected by YouTube showing racist adverts before and during their videos. Not only that but some of them promote child abuse, according to Forbes.

A large number of the organizations said they didn’t know their advertisements had been set on the recordings and were making a move to make sense of why they were set there. At the point when organizations publicize with YouTube, they can focus on their promotions in light of client conduct and socioeconomics. They can likewise piece particular channels and pick a “delicate subject rejection” channel, as per CNN, which ought to keep advertisements from showing up on specific channels.

YouTube said it needs to work with sponsors to control wrong substance, yet it didn’t address how the most recent issues happened.

“We have banded together with our publicists to roll out huge improvements to how we approach adaptation on YouTube with stricter arrangements, better controls and more prominent straightforwardness,” a representative for the organization told CNN in an announcement. “When we find that advertisements erroneously kept running against content that doesn’t conform to our approaches, we quickly evacuate those promotions. We realize that notwithstanding when recordings meet our promoter inviting rules, not all recordings will be fitting for all brands. In any case, we are focused on working with our publicists and getting this right.”

This isn’t the first run through organizations have discovered their promotions set on fanatic substance. A year ago, several organizations cut back on their YouTube promotion purchases after they took in their commercials were being shown on disputable substance. In any case, after that occurrence and others like it, promoters came back to the stage.

“We have partnered with our advertisers to make significant changes to how we approach monetization on YouTube with stricter policies, better controls and greater transparency,” a YouTube spokeswoman said in a statement.

“When we find that ads mistakenly ran against content that doesn’t comply with our policies, we immediately remove those ads. We know that even when videos meet our advertiser friendly guidelines, not all videos will be appropriate for all brands. But we are committed to working with our advertisers and getting this right,” she added.

However, the YouTube statement does not address why the issue keeps happening.

Compared: Vimeo vs Youtube, which is best?

YouTube and Vimeo are two of the most popular video sites around, and at first glance they look quite similar, but there are some key differences.

Whether you’re looking for a platform to upload and share your videos, or you want somewhere to watch great quality content, there are lots of factors to bear in mind. Both YouTube and Vimeo offer free services, but both also have various premium services, which differ greatly. Vimeo also allows for much higher video quality than YouTube, which encourages users to focus on quantity rather than quality.

Upload costs

Vimeo works the other way round, letting viewers watch videos for free, but charging creatives to upload their content.

A Vimeo basic account is free, but comes with some strict limits on the amount of data you can upload (see below for full details). Premium Vimeo accounts are priced as follows:

  • Plus: $7 / £6 / AU$7 per month billed annually
  • Pro: $20 / £16 / AU$20 per month billed annually
  • Business: $50 / £40 / AU$50 per month billed annually
  • Premium: $75 / £70 / AU$75 per month billed annually

YouTube gives watchers a chance to watch recordings for nothing, however on the off chance that you would prefer not to be hindered by promotions, at that point you’ll have to move up to YouTube Premium. This is free for this first month, and $11.99/£11.99/AU$14.99 every month from that point.

All about the costs and prices

YouTube Premium additionally gives you a chance to play recordings out of sight while you utilize different applications on your telephone (perfect for music recordings), and gives you access to YouTube Originals (TV arrangement and motion pictures appointed by YouTube).

Recordings on Vimeo aren’t peppered with advertisements, and many are allowed to watch, yet others are accessible on a compensation for every view premise called Video on Demand (VoD). This offers three levels:

Lease, which enables you to stream the video for a particular period

  • Purchase, which gives you a chance to stream the video for whatever length of time that it stays on Vimeo
  • Buy in, which gives you access to everything on the VoD’s page, including any new recordings that are transferred in future.
  • VoD installments go straightforwardly to the maker. All makers acknowledge US dollars as installment, however different monetary forms (counting pounds sterling and Australian dollars) are discretionary.

Summary

So overall, it would appear that YouTube is better, although if you are employed in the arts, graphics or design then Vimeo offers a viable alternative solution, albeit for a higher price.

Solved: How to spot fake-popular YouTube videos

Is this story actually true? Who knows, but it caught my attention, as I have my eye on a BMW M3 and also because it involves YouTube 🙂

If you watch the video above, you’ll see that the story goes like this:

YouTuber had BMW M3 stolen, and saw it by chance on YouTube again being re-sold illegally at a junkyard.

This roused my suspicion because a BMW M3 that is only a few years old should not really end up at a junkyard / scrapyard. Even though the bonnet is open on the video, and there is some minor damage to the front-end, it looks (from where we are sitting anyway) to be a fully repairable car. And using the VIN you can see from here that it’s not actually ever been scrapped or written off…

The first bad sign?

No insurance underwriter is going to write off a car that is still worth about £25,000 ($40,000) without good reason – i.e. it’s worth way less than that. But why would it be?

When some people started to question this is in the comments, they were mysteriously locked and all comments removed/disabled. That’s the first warning sign.

The second warning sign is that you can see the likes and dislikes are disabled. A video with over 1m views would have at least one rating – it’s inevitable. And indeed I’d expect the number of likes/dislikes to be well into the five figures, for a video with this many views.

Locked comments are a red flag

YouTube gives you the option to lock comments, and also to prevent likes/dislikes being left. I can’t see any genuine reason to do this:

Every so often a video on YouTube goes viral and yet it doesn’t take a genius to figure out that it’s probably not fully true nor is everything as it seems. These are my two tips to spotting fake videos on YouTube – do you have any other tips?

TheVerge also has a fairly useful article here on how to spot fake viral ones (i.e. they’ve bought the views). Let’s be honest though — it’s much easier to create a fake video than it is to create a real one, and buy the views. If you create the right clickbait video title, the views will come.
