I generally use Mozilla Firefox but recently one of my friend asked me to help her in downloading youtube video. I know that there are many websites that could help her in downloading youtube videos but I wanted to add an extension so that it would be easy to download videos next time. After some time I realized that it is not so simple to install an extension that helps to download youtube videos through chrome store as it is against there policy 4.4.1 . Please find below screenshot.
So what does this mean to you ?
It means that there is no way you can find an extension that will help you to download youtube video’s but interestingly I found few extensions that will help you in downloading facebook, daily motion and vimeo videos. Anyways it is not our topic to discuss.So I have managed to find few third party extensions that will help you in downloading youtube videos.
And there are few restrictions in Google Chrome to installing third party extensions and there is a separate way in which you have to install third party extensions. If you don’t know how to install third party extensions then please read the below post before knowing about the extensions taht serve the purpose.
