Method 1. Download YouTube Videos to MP4 for Android with EaseUS Video Downloader

The first way to download YouTube videos to Android in MP4 is to use a desktop video downloader. EaseUS Video Downloader is a lightweight video grabber tool that helps you download any video to your PC. As an excellent video downloader, the tool can help you download YouTube videos and convert them to MP4, MP3, and WAV. If you want to download YouTube to MP4 to your Android device, you can transfer the downloaded YouTube videos to your Android devices from your PC via a USB cable. The process is very straightforward. Before we get started, let's look at what EaseUS Video Download offers.

Key Features:

👉The steps for downloading YouTube videos on a PC are as follows:

How to Transfer Downloaded YouTube Videos to Android from PC

After you download the YouTube videos in MP4 to your PC, connect your Android phone and PC with a USB cable and set it for file transfer on your Android device. Then, you can freely transfer the YouTube videos to your Android phones. See here for more detailed steps.

Method 2. Convert YouTube Videos to Android in MP4 with an Online Video Downloader 

Another easy way to convert YouTube to MP4 on Android is to use online video downloaders compatible with mobile browsers. Such online video downloaders allow you to directly save and convert a YouTube video to MP4 on your Android device. You can find one by searching "YouTube to MP4" directly on your browser on your device and find one. The one I used to keep is wave.video, a well-known free YouTube to MP4 converter website. 

👉Follow these steps to save YouTube Videos in MP4 format on Android phones:

Step 1. Search and choose an online video downloader with a browser on your Android phone. Go to the official site of wave,video, for example. 


Step 2. Open the YouTube app and find the video you want to download in MP4. Tap the share icon and choose "Copy link" to get the video link.

Step 3. Go back to your browser and paste the link into the online video downloader's input box, then go ahead. 

Step 4. After the video is analyzed, you will get some download options. Choose "MP4" and tap "Download" to save the YouTube videos to your Android in MP4.

The process slightly varies with different online sites. When you use an online video downloader, there is a large chance that you get ads or download apps by mistake. To avoid opening malicious sites, please be careful when you choose these ways to convert YouTube to MP4 on Android.

Method 3.  Save YouTube Videos to MP4 on Android with an App

The last method we recommend to convert a YouTube video to MP4 on Android is to install a video download app. We list this way for two reasons. 

  1. 1️⃣Such YouTube to MP4 downloader Android apps are not available in the Play Store, and you need to enable your Android device to install apps from unknown sources, which is risky.
  2. 2️⃣Installing an app may slow down your Android device. This is not recommended when you don't have enough available space.

If you have confidence in the app you select and have enough space on your device, you can go ahead with this solution. Here is an example of using an Android app to download YouTube videos to MP4.
