Watch YouTube Videos Offline on BlueStacks App Player

The time has come where you need not to search, download and install any third party software to download YouTube videos if you are living in these three Asian countries, India, Indonesia, and the Philippines.

The worlds biggest video-sharing website, YouTube have tampered the buffering wheel to run smoothly in the tough mobile data routes of the countries of India, Indonesia, and the Philippines. It allows mobile internet users of these countries watch videos offline by downloading them into their accounts.

Note: This option is available only for those whose YouTube mobile application. If you haven’t had it on your phone yet, download it from the following links:
It is good to know that YouTube app allows us to save videos for offline viewing, but will it allow us to do so if we are using BlueStacks App Player?

It's definitely possible!

Open the BlueStacks App Player on your computer and click on Search icon > search for YouTube official app, download and install it.

Open the YouTube app on your BlueStacks player and open the video you wanted to watch.

You could see a download icon being visible under the video like as shown in the below screenshot. It will notify you when using the YouTube app for the first time.

Clicking on the download icon under the video will ask you to choose the quality with which you wanted to save it.

Ticking on the Remember my settings will not ask you the quality in future downloads.

Clicking on the Ok button will start downloading the video into the Offline section in the menu options.

Click on Show me button to go to the offline section directly or you can navigate from Menu > Offline by dismissing the message.

You can now see the video being downloaded into your offline section if you enter into it.

When the download is done, click on it to watch as usual but with no buffering this time.

You can find it showing ‘Offline’ with a tick mark underlined

There are limitations

Yes! Of course, this feature also has limitations as well. With YouTube application on your handset, you can,
  • Save videos offline by downloading them at a time
  • Watch videos even in no internet connection times
  • Watch videos with no buffering at all
  • Download it on one device and watch it later from another by just logging in to your account
Though having a YouTube app with this functionality, we cannot,
  • Download videos to your computer
  • Watch them whenever you want as they will only exist for 48 hours
  • Cannot save them forever if once downloaded
YouTube is more optimistic about the application and promises users to bring more affordable accessible ways to access videos for its growing mobile users.

It is quite interesting and hopes to see a better side of it by the next improvisation. What do you think? Is offline download feature is good? Share your thoughts in comments below.
