Download videos that you've uploaded

Save as new feature going away soon: The ability to use the save as new feature when trimming or blurring your video will be discontinued after March 17, 2021. This feature was rarely used and we’re removing it to focus on other creator tools. You can download your edited video and upload it again to publish your changes.
You can’t download other people’s YouTube videos. You can watch videos offline in the YouTube app if you have a YouTube Premium membership. Learn more about saving videos offline with YouTube Premium.

Troubleshoot issues downloading your videos

You can't download your videos if:

  • Your video has been removed from YouTube.
  • Your video has either a copyright or Community Guidelines strike against it.
  • Your video uses a pre-approved audio track.
  • You've already downloaded your video five times in the last 24 hours. You can only download an individual video up to five times per day. After a day has passed, you'll see the option to download the video again.
