Navigate over to YouTube and find the video you’d like to download to your computer.

Highlight the web address for the video and drag it down to where it says “Keep It” in your bookmark bar

Keepvid should launch and lower down on the page, if it can be downloaded should be a few different choices of the video. Usually it’s the different file types YouTube offers.

Right click on the one you want and with any luck it will start downloading to your computer.

The only gotcha I’ve found is that some content can’t be downloaded but it’s worth trying!
