The page that appears similar to the right image will be loaded.
Possibly, other websites similar like “keepvid.com” may also work, but we haven’t tried them. But this one sure 100% works.
Now, close Documents 6 and then go to Safari browser where we need to visit YouTube. Look for the video you want to download your iOS device and copy the URL. You can copy the video URL simply by holding your finger on the address bar until the “Copy” option appears. Whenever you copied the URL, return to Documents 6 to paste it into the “box” and finally click the “Download” button.
Wait for the browser to display the download options and select the one you like. Small reminder:
Logically, the higher the video resolution, the more space it will consume on the iPhone or iPad memory. To choose video quality, a pop-up menu will be displayed from which you can select video resolution, rename video file and choose saving location within Documents 6.
Click the Save button and wait until the video downloaded to your iPhone or iPad memory. Now, you are away from one final step only.
