There are plenty of reasons why you’d want to download videos from YouTube, which includes creating an offline music library and watching your favorite videos on the go.

When it comes to downloading videos from other social media platforms such as Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter, there only a handful of reliable names in the business, SnapDownloader being among them.
