How to Convert YouTube Video to AVI

By Emily Watson, Friday, Oct. 30, 2015

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 won't play on your computer or potable devices naturally. Under this situation, you can convert YouTube to AVI, MP4, 3GP or more other popular formats.
