There are millions of helpful YouTube videos out there and these days you can even view full series of TV programs, films and music videos, which is great, but what if you wanted to download a YouTube video? Well, the simple answer is that you can’t as YouTube does not provide a way of downloading from their site.

However, there is an excellent program called 5KPlayer which allows you to very easily and quickly download YouTube videos to your own computer.


You can download the 5KPlayer from the button below:
