How do I convert longer than 2 hours YouTube videos to mp4?


YouTube is full of videos on various topics. All videos are of different quality and length. Some interesting videos can last for a long time - longer than 2 hours - and we do not have an opportunity to watch them here and now. You can copy the video URL and save it to notes or remember the video’s title and try to find the video later. Anyway, there’s always a chance to lose the YouTube video you’d like to watch. That is why it’s easier to download the video from YouTube to your laptop and enjoy it later offline when you have enough time to watch.

From this guide you will learn how you can download longer than 2 hours videos from YouTube and watch them any time you want in MP4 format.
