Copy the address of the video.
When you want to share a video with someone, the easiest way is to simply copy the URL from the address bar and paste it into an email or chat window.
To do this, just click the address bar to highlight the URL, then press Control + C (PC) or Command + C (Mac) to copy.
If you’re using the YouTube app on Android, just tap Share under the video and select Copy link. By copying the link, you can be sure that the recipient will be able to watch the video without any problems.
And if the video is ever taken down or moved to a different URL, the link will no longer work, so you won’t have to worry about broken links.

Click the “Advanced Mode”
YouTube offers a wealth of content in a variety of genres, and many users want to download videos to watch offline or convert to a format that can be played on other devices.
YouTube makes this process easy with its “Advanced Mode” switch. When you click the “Advanced Mode” switch, you’ll be given additional options for download format and quality.
You can choose to download the video in MP4 format at either 720p or 1080p resolution. You can also choose to download the audio track only, in either MP3 or M4A format.
Once you’ve made your selections, click the Convert button and your download will begin. With the “Advanced Mode” switch, you can tailor your YouTube downloads to your specific needs.
Select MP3 download options
When you select an MP3 download option, the MP3 version of the video will begin to download to your default downloads folder. The higher the bit rate (KBPS), the better the quality.
Higher bitrates also result in larger files. If the download doesn’t begin automatically, click Save or Download. If you’re using an Android, you can use your file manager app (such as Files by Google) to locate and listen to the MP3 file.
