How to Download Youtube Videos using Wget

I use the Linux operating system and all the commands here have been tasted on linux only!

What is wget

GNU Wget is a free software package for retrieving files using HTTP, HTTPS and FTP, the most widely-used Internet protocols. It is a non-interactive commandline tool, so it may easily be called from scripts, cron jobs, terminals without X-Windows support, etc.

How to download youtube videos using Wget

  • Copy the address of the video you want to download in the address bar of youtube.
  • Use a web service like keepvid to get the download link of the video
  • To get the download link using keepvid, just paste the address gotten from the youtube address bar into the keepvid address field and click on download
  • Then right click on the links provided and select copy link address as shown below
  • Use a web address shortening service like is.gd to shorten the download link
  • Open a terminal and type
  • wget  "shortened address"
  • When the download reaches 100%, the video should be in your current working directory

Please if you encounter any errors or problems in the following steps, just leave a comment and I will get back to you as soon as possible
