YouTube is the favorite pastime for many people surfing on the web. We can spend hours watching our favorite videos on YouTube but those who are not always connected to the internet may want to download videos from YouTube for offline viewing but unfortunately YouTube doesn’t offer any such option. Wouldn’t it be great if you can get an option to download YouTube videos as MP4 or FLV?.

That’s exactly what YouTube videos as MP4 userscript does. Basically, it adds an option in the video page which allows you to download the video in various resolutions/quality and you also have the option to download the video in MP4 or FLV format. This userscript adds a “Download” button next to Like, Dislike and Share buttons. Click on it and you will be presented with additional options of ‘ video formats’ such as download it as MP4 360p, MP4 720p, MP4 1080p, FLV, etc. These options will depend on the quality of the uploaded video.


All you need to do is to just click on the option, such as MP4 720p and the download process will start. With this extension, downloading any video is a piece of cake.

Now there’s no need to download the video and then convert it to MP4 as with this extension, you can directly download the video as MP4.

If I were to choose between these two formats, then I would always prefer to download videos as MP4 so that it can also be copied to my phone, iPad or any other device that runs the format. This format is a superb choice if you want to watch the video in almost any device.
