How Do You Save a YouTube Video to Your Camera Roll?

Are you tired of constantly buffering YouTube videos or losing internet connection while watching your favorite content? Luckily, there is a solution to this problem – saving the video to your camera roll for offline viewing. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the steps on how to save a YouTube video to your camera roll.

Step 1: Download a third-party app
Unfortunately, the YouTube app itself does not have an option to save videos directly to your camera roll. Therefore, you will need to download a third-party app that allows you to do so. Some popular apps include Documents by Readdle and Video Downloader Pro.

Step 2: Copy the YouTube video link
Once you have downloaded the third-party app of your choice, navigate to the YouTube video that you want to save. Tap on the share button below the video and select “Copy Link.”

Step 3: Open the third-party app
Open the third-party app that you downloaded in Step 1 and tap on the browser icon within it. Paste the copied link from Step 2 into the search bar and hit enter.

Step 4: Download and save
The third-party app should now display a preview of the YouTube video with an option to download it. Tap on “Download” and select “Save Video” when prompted. The video will now be saved directly onto your camera roll for offline viewing.

– Make sure that you are downloading videos for personal use only and not violating any copyright laws.
– Keep in mind that some videos may not be available for download due to copyright restrictions or other limitations set by YouTube.


Saving a YouTube video directly onto your camera roll allows for convenient offline viewing without any interruptions. By following these simple steps, you can easily download and save any desired YouTube video onto your camera roll. Happy viewing!
