Whether it’s an edit of your favourite Heartstopper moments or a performance from Shawn Mendes at the gig you went to, the chances are that there are dozens of videos online that you’re obsessed with. YouTube is the home of video, and whilst the platform is pretty reliable, videos containing music and copyrighted content can often be taken down or muted without warning, meaning you could suddenly lose a precious moment of celebrity footage.
One of the best ways to overcome this is to use a video downloader so you can hold onto your favourite videos forever – no longer will you have to worry about them being taken down or disappearing from the face of the internet again. Below, we’ve put together some tips…
Use the right software
Perhaps one of the best pieces of advice we can give you is to find the right software when you are downloading videos from the internet. Not only is it essential that you can download your files in the correct format for use on your MacBook and iPhone, but you’ll also want to ensure your downloads are of the highest quality, so your favourite celebrity videos are preserved in all of their glory. Platforms like DVDFab are not only useful for downloading videos from YouTube, but you can also download content from platforms like Crunchyroll, Apple TV+, HBO, Netflix, Paramount Plus, Hulu, Disney+, Amazon Prime, and more. It’s helpful if you want to save an episode of your favourite TV show for breaking down into your own edits or videos or if you’re worried your favourite movie might be removed from a platform. Other platforms include Peacock, Pluto TV, CW, Roku, and Tubi in North America.
Store your videos sensibly
Once you’ve gone to the effort of downloading your favourite celebrity videos to your Mac or PC, the next step is to store them sensibly. We recommend setting up a dedicated Videos folder on your device. Hence, you have everything stored in one place, and if you’re the sort of person who likes to collect videos and content from multiple celebrities, TV shows, and movies, then you might want to consider separate folders for each one. Although your PC or Mac is the perfect spot for storing your videos, it’s also worth noting that hard drive failures are possible, so you might also want to use a tool such as Google Drive, Dropbox, or iCloud to store a backup of your favourite vids. Alternatively, you could buy an external hard drive.
Share your content with friends
Once you’ve downloaded your favourite celebrity videos from the internet, the next step is to share them with those you love. You could send them directly via iMessage and WhatsApp, or you could use a tool such as WeTransfer to send larger file formats. If you upload them to a cloud platform like Google Drive, Dropbox, or iCloud, you can simply send them a link, safe in the knowledge that they’re not stored on a site like YouTube and can be taken down.
