2 Free Ways to Play YouTube on iPad
I'm not sure whether you are like me, who is a big YouTube fans and get used to watch videos on YouTube site every day. Recently I bought an iPad mini and I wondered if there is any way possible for me to enjoy watching YouTube videos on my favorite iPad. I tried several ways and finally I found out the most effective methods. Now, I will share the two ways here and hope the people who have the same hobby as me can get the solution they want.
The ways I introduced here are worked with all iPad models, including iPad, iPad 2, The new iPad, iPad mini and newest iPad 4. Ok, let's go straight to the topic:
Method 1: How to download YouTube videos to iPad?
The first method is downloading YouTube videos to your computer and then converting to iPad compatible video format. Sounds complex? Actually it is quite simple. Because what I used is the 2-in-1 program iPubsoft YouTube Video Downloader, which can download and convert YouTube videos simultaneously. It is completely free to use.
Step 1: Run the free software, click the tab of "New Task" and copy&paste the URL of the YouTube video that you want to play on your iPad to the specific input field.
Step 2: Choose "MP4" as the output video format by clicking the down arrow in the Video Quality section and select an output folder for saving the exported video.
Step 3: Click the "Download" button and then the program will automatically download the YouTube video to you.
When the conversion finishes, you can go to the output folder and sync the downloaded YouTube videos to your iPad via iTunes app.
Method 2: Download YouTube App for Your iPad
Another way I want to introduce is downloading the free app WorldTube HD from iTunes store onto your iPad. With it, you can search the whole YouTube site on your iPad. You are allowed to search a video while watching another one, or watch full screen video in HD on your iPad. In addition, the app enables you to share the YouTube videos with your family or friends on Facebook, Twitter and Email with a single click.
A Brief Conclusion:
Both of the two ways above are free for all. But the second method needs the Internet connection. So, for myself, I prefer the first method, especially when I am in a place where there is no Wi-Fi connection. iPubsoft Free YouTube Video Download is really a good way to watch YouTube videos offline.
