There are several tools that help you download YouTube videos easily. But downloading private YouTube videos can be a pain if you don’t know how to do so.

But don’t worry – you’ve come to the right place. In this article, I am going to tell you the five ways in which you can download private YouTube videos of any kind easily in full HD.

As long as you follow these simple steps, you can even download unlisted YouTube videos:

With the help of a Firefox add-on

The first method is very simple and easy. All you need to do is get your hands on a Firefox add-on known as the Video Downloader Professional.

Out of all the browsers available, Firefox works best and certainly better than an extension like Google Chrome as Google has restricted YouTube downloader extensions.

All you need to do is follow these simple steps:

  • Download and Install Video Downloader Professional add-on from https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/video-downloader-profession/
  • Open the Firefox browser and go to the YouTube page. From here, you want to search and open the specific private video you are looking for.
  • Once you have access to the page you want to download the private video from, click on the Video Downloader Professional add-on that should be visible on the top right corner of your screen.
  • From there, you should see a bunch of download options with different video qualities, choose the version you want access to, and hit download.

Note: If you didn’t already know, YouTube stores audio and video separately for high-quality videos (1080P or above), so this Firefox add-on would only allow you to download videos up to 720P quality.

With the help of ByClick Downloader
