Step 1. When on YouTube, open the video that you want to download

Step 2. Now you have to make a small change in video url [Replace “www.” to “ss”] please note: there is NO DOT! you can also leave the “www.” and just add ss before the youtube of any video, so you do not have even have to copy and paste

Step 4. After that it will redirect to a new site:
