Troubleshoot issues downloading your videos

You can't download your videos if:

  • Your video has been removed from YouTube.
  • Your video has copyrighted content in 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.
