I'm afraid a YouTube video is going to be taken down. Is there a converter/"saver"?

Technically, downloading a video from YouTube violates their terms of use.  If it's your own video and you need a copy of it, there's a way to do that without running afoul of their ToU.

Log into your YouTube account, go to the Video Manager and select the video.  On the next screen is a download link.

1) Log in to the account that has the videos attached to it.
2) Click My Channel from the menu on the left
3) Video Manager should now appear as an option top left of the screen, above the banner.

I did answer the questions based on the information you (very slowly) divulged.  As I said, it is less about copyright and more about ownership and YouTube's terms of service.  If they are your uploaded videos, I told you how to download them.  If they are someone else's, you can't scrape them because YouTube's ToS prevents you and I can't tell you how to circumvent that...it would be unethical.

Have a nice day.
