How to create a youtube account

When I tried to download certain videos from youtube.com, it prompted for
login id/password ie credentials.  I entered by gmail email address & password
but it still did not allow the download to go through.

How do I create the utube account (step by step instructions)?  Does it cost anything?

Hello,

Youtube is free to access without even login. However you need a google account (Your Gmail Account) if you want to upload your videos and create a channel of your own. You can manage your playlists and other preferences once you are logged in.

I am not sure what do you mean by "downloading videos". well the videos from youtube can not be downloaded directly. But they have provided a way through which you can make certain videos available offline. Please look for a small icon for this right below the view count. Please note that this option is not available for all videos.

If you want to download any videos from youtube then you may try browser plugins like video downloadhelper or like. You can also use small software like Free Youtube video downloader.

I would strongly recommend that you MUST NOT download any videos that violates any laws and which involves the illegal duplication or distribution of copyrighted content.

Internet is for everyone. Help to keep it safe. Hope this answers your question.

Best Regards
Raghav.

I've followed the first 2 links & my gmail accounts allow me to sign in to youtube.

However, when I used YTD downloader to get the videos, the gmail credentials
entered would result in "Failed" download

You might use the software from below link -

It doesn't requires you to provide credentials.

Paul SauvéRetiredCommented:
many YouTube videos are blocked for download!

you can also paste the link in VLC media player which is free at http://www.videolan.org/

this is how: Media ―> Open Network Stream... ―> Network tab ―> paste the URL and click Play

here is an example of a clip which CANNOT be downloaded: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jqpwC2vXcOM

The above gave an error "Error 3: cant find map file" when I paste the
youtube url (https://... ) into it & click Download

With some other utube url (http://...)

Something to do with the https ??

I tried the VLC player as Paul's suggested, it displays the video screen for 1 second only
& then back to a blank with 'inverted orange cone' icon

do you think that you could post the YouTube link that you are trying to download, please?

MereteCommented:
I agree with Paul,  not all youtube video can be downloaded, your posting the URL into YTB downloader?
And I dont believe you need a youtube account or a google account to download video from youtube, I can't test that as I have both. And I have always used youtube downloader pro
There is also downloadhelper with firefox browser for the difficult videos that YTB downloader wont.

Hi Paul,  somehow on my mobile android I cant open it directly as it requires the user to be above 18.

I hv the link in my laptop but u may see search in Youtube for    'Transporter 2 full movie' : shd be in the 1st page returned

Paul SauvéRetiredCommented:
all the Youtube links for 'Transporter 2 full movie have the same message:
This video has been removed because its content violated YouTube's Terms of Service

MereteCommented:
I can watch it online from numerous places including youtube, Vimeo and numerous other places,  only once when you go back it is nolonger available or has major defects to make watching it difficult

However free can be dangerous with hidden spyware and offers when you click play on other sites.
Youtube offers a world of video you can pay per view / rent for just a few dollars.  from 3 dollars 99 actually or buy it for 9 dollars
Youtube has a dedicated Movie channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UClgRkhTL3_hImCAmdLfDE4g where you can watch them legally and safely.
Transporter 2  $3.99
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QYtjdOpr8LY
When you watch it and stop when you return it resumes from where you left off.
Once watched a few times the interest is lost.

There is also
Netflix Android app around 8 dollars a month, may vary with different countries
https://www.netflix.com/au/
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.netflix.mediaclient&hl=en
 Google Play
https://play.google.com/store/movies?hl=en
The age of free is over and when these rules  are broken there is a risk of being hacked .
There are always ways to circumvent these but first we are not allowed to provide this kind of stuff, 2ndly how do the actors and directors and film crew get paid if everything is for free.
Kids need to understand that free is nice when it is freely given, with movies the novelty wears off once watched.
I have shelves of bought DVD like that. I buy them from Woolworths or online.
cheers

Ignore the last post : sent accidentally.

Paul, the link I could watch on my browser is:
  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jCTxyUUV_bc
It would be taken down after a while I guess.

after a few months, I wud revisit to watch the same movie & often it's rare
to have a movie with subtitles in it (I'm not a good listener so I need the subtitles
tho it's English movie with English subtitle)

I get to the 2nd last screen Merete posted above (Get Add Ons)
but for the last screen, I don't see "Download Videos" option
(the one with 3 color button) : what did I miss?

I went to the link Paul provided above & click "Add to Firefox".
Subsequently it asks to add/install Ffmpeg which took 12 mins to download
& install & came back with a message "Video downloader installed
successfully" but I still don't see the last screen Merete posted.

Still can't get Video DownloadHelper to work: simply doesn't appear under Add-Ons / Plug-Ins ;
also what Jackie recommends, somehow could not install on my Android : clicked on it & nothing happens.

I managed to get a "FF Video & Audio downloader"  add-on which shows up on the top right corner of
the playing uTube page & downloaded the video.

Thanks to all who chipped in.  Will close this tomorrow
