For those looking to download a video or two, this is all you need. But when you have a library with hundreds, maybe thousands, of uploaded videos, there is a better way.

How to download multiple YouTube videos at the same time

YouTube doesn’t provide an official way to download other people’s YouTube videos – unless you want to download them offline on the YouTube app to watch later. A YouTube Premium subscription is required for this.
