Armed with user reviews and speed test results, we finally discovered the best way to download YouTube videos. Read on!

YouTube Download can feel like Russian Roulette...kind of.

Sometimes you get lucky and save the videos without a fuss, but there's a chance to get viruses and malware instead.

But stay calm – this post will show off the best way to download YouTube videos. Watch the video for a clearer perspective:

At first sight, download from YouTube seems to be easy to tackle. And in theory, it should be so. But in practice, it is a bit different (unless you’re using the app from the video).

Softorino YouTube Converter is a new superb tool created by the guys that introduced WALTR for Mac & Windows. Their new app uses the unique technology of their previous product and transfers media from YouTube directly to an iPhone.

Introducing: The Best Way to Download YouTube Videos

Softorino YouTube Converter is a Mac & Windows tiny program that downloads online videos to computer and even Apple mobile devices. It works perfectly with all iOS 5 & above devices. Yes, the name seems generic, but don’t judge a book by its cover (just yet).

Softorino YouTube Converter is the exclusive solution that can send YouTube videos directly into your iPhone, iPod, or iPad. Moreover, all your files will land exactly into iOS TV player.

Step 1. Download Softorino YouTube Converter 2

You can save the installation file directly from our website. There is a big bright ‘Free Download’ button in the top right corner of this webpage. This is a free download. You will also receive 24h trial (the full version is priced at $19.95).

Step 2. Plug in your iOS device with the help of USB.

All you have to do is to connect your iPhone using the standard USB cable.

If you want to download videos to your Mac & PC, pay attention to our guide here: Download YouTube Videos on Mac with Softorino YouTube Converter.

Step 3. Search for the needed video using in-app browser

Alternatively, you can just copy the URL on YouTube: right click (CMD + right click) on the video and then select ‘Copy link’.

Then the thumbnail of the video will immediately appear in the app’s window.

The next task is to choose the quality of the video and select where you want to save it (it can be your Mac or your iPhone/iPad/iPod).

Copy a link to the videos and choose the quality

Aaand then…just sit back and hit ‘Convert and Transfer to iPhone’. The transferring process will begin immediately.

By the way, if you ever wanted to strip audio from YouTube videos, now you’re able to tackle this in no time. You just need to switch to ‘Audio’ mode while using this YouTube download software.

Hit "convert & transfer to iPhone"

DONE! With this YouTube Downloader software, you get your files saved inside the pre-installed Apple iOS apps.

By the way, by using native TV/Music players and not third-party ones, you actually avoid extra battery drain.

Essential Features of SYC 2

Although Softorino YouTube Converter is a really teeny application, it is very multifunctional. It can handle many tasks that usually are catch-22 for other kinds of software.

For example, with SYC 2, you will have the ability to save the whole playlists within one click. Copy the URL, hit ‘Convert and Transfer to iPhone’ and dozens of video are in your native Videos.app (TV app).

We described this simple formula here: Download YouTube URL & Get the Video Saved on the Computer.

By far, Softorino YouTube Converter is the only alternative to YouTube Red. Moreover, it has features, that YouTube Red still can’t offer (e.g., converting files to MP3s). And on the contrary to YouTube Red, this tool is available in every place on our mother Earth.

What you get with Softorino YouTube Converter 2:

  • An uber fast way to save ANY online video

  • An effortless way to convert videos to MP3s

  • Turn any video into a special iPhone ringtone

  • No buffering or glitching

To compare, if you use online converters to download videos to iOS –you will face lots of impediments to get this done. For instance, if you needed that video on your iPad, you have to transfer it with iTunes afterward. And this means more wasting of time, more hassle and more irritation.

That’s why we think that Softorino YouTube Converter (SYC 2 for short) is truly the best way to download YouTube videos.

Conclusion

If you type ‘The best way to download YouTube videos‘ in Google, you’ll discover 100000s of various solutions. But I am assured that most of them are untrustworthy, sketchy, and clumsy.

Dubious Downloaders & Converters are precisely the types of software that is packed with all kinds of junk imaginable. Once you install one of those, you’ll have to put in a Herculean effort to remove it from your HDD.

And even If you got lucky and installed something without any malware agents, this doesn’t mean that it’s going to work as you expect. It’s a common fact that YouTube download software often affects the quality of the videos. Let’s say, you wanted to save the video in 1080p, but in the end, you just get 480p. Exactly what you wanted, isn’t it?

Softorino YouTube Converter is the exact opposite. When using this utility, you get the remedy for several burning problems you might experience.

P.S.

We know that probably many of you are concerned that downloading & copying YouTube videos is a violation of Google copywriting policy.

But, as long as you’re doing it for your personal use (not distributing), it is okay. Furthermore, some rare songs & videos aren’t available for purchase and can be found only on YouTube. So saving videos, in this case, isn’t a ‘crime’ at all.
