How to Download Videos from YouTube

YouTube, a video-sharing website, was founded on February 14, 2005, by three former PayPal employees and was later acquired by Google in November 2006 for $1.65 billion. Today, it attracts nearly 2 billion users monthly, making it a popular platform for content creators and viewers alike.
