    I recently watched some ads that showed that by downloading youtube apps they will be able to watch the video in offline mode.I wonder how is that possible how will the app download the video without internet connection.In ads it is showing that people face problem in slow connection as video buffering takes time but this is a problem of network how will an app increase download speed.

    hi this is nice question. when you connecting with internet or wifi you will download and view as offline option then youtube app download the video and store in mobile in specialised format. so whenever you want if you not have internet connection also you can play video...

    Yeah that's a good question. I used this method for 3-4 months, but this option isnt available on all videos and it also uses a strange format so I cant play it in my video player.Recently switched over to save it offline saveitoffline.com since they provide like 8 different formats. Hope my comment helps some other user the same way it helped me. :)
