Part 2. Download YouTube Movies without Purchasing 

If you don't want to purchase a movie from YouTube, or the movie you want to watch is not a paid one on YouTube, we have got you another way. If somebody or brands upload a movie, you can use a third-party application to download the free movie from YouTube to Windows or Mac. Besides using a third-party video or movie downloader, there are some other options for you, like online video downloaders or plugins.
