How To: Download Private YouTube Videos

private youtube video

YouTube’s Help Center says when you
set your YouTube videos private
, they “will only be viewable by those select
members” you gave permission to. Well, that’s just like Gmail saying “you’ll
never need to delete another message” - no guarantee.

I don’t know whether Google’s considering this a feature or not, given that
it’s been around for a really long time, but sure it isn’t something the privacy
advocates on YouTube would like: you can download any private videos. :)

Now, the impatient you ask, “How can I download a private YouTube video
then?” It’s so darn easy, just enter the video ID in the text field below and
click on “Get Video”. Voilà! (finding a private video isn’t that easy
though)[VIDEO ID]
