YouTube is the world’s largest and most popular destination for videos. It is not always possible to stay connected to the internet and that’s why you would feel the need to download the video from YouTube to your Android device.
Watching videos online on YouTube means you would need to wait for buffering to complete, if you are on slow internet connection. Therefore, a good solution will be to save the video directly to your Android device and this is possible with the help of an Android app named as TubeMate.

You also have the option to download the video as MP3. Choose this option if you want to save the video as a MP3 file.
The folder icon in TubeMate can help you browse to all the downloaded videos. The magnifier icon is used for searching any video on YouTube.
