Every now and then, we get an email from our friends, families, coworkers, or business partners with a link to a YouTube video of something interesting or important. Rather than saving that link, we may prefer to download the video from YouTube and save the video. However, some YouTube videos may not play on your computer or portable devices naturally. Under this situation, you can convert YouTube to AVI, MP4, 3GP, or more other popular formats.

Due to we've previously introduced how to convert YouTube online videos to MP4, let's focus on converting YouTube to AVI in this post.
