I am looking for a webapp which can download videos from YouTube to Google Drive. I am preferring pure webapp not browser extension based solutions, because primarily I will use that webapp in mobile chrome browser. There is one webapp https://www.seedr.cc, which is for torrent downloads. I am looking for same, in which I will put YouTube video URL or playlist URL and it will download whole content and push it to Google Drive.


Unfortunately, under the current Terms of Service, you are not supposed to download videos from YouTube. It is supposed to be a service where you merely view or listen to the content on the website. I quote from the Terms:

The following restrictions apply to your use of the Service. You are not allowed to:

  1. access, reproduce, download, distribute, transmit, broadcast, display, sell, license, alter, modify or otherwise use any part of the Service or any Content except: (a) as specifically permitted by the Service; (b) with prior written permission from YouTube and, if applicable, the respective rights holders; or (c) as permitted by applicable law;
  2. circumvent, disable, fraudulently engage with, or otherwise interfere with the Service (or attempt to do any of these things), including security-related features or features that: (a) prevent or restrict the copying or other use of Content; or (b) limit the use of the Service or Content;

Seeing as there is no download button on the website, the website clearly does not "permit" this by default, and I would consider such a feature a "restriction" on copying content.

Therefore, one should not download YouTube videos directly to Google Drive.

Generically, I would recommend using a sync client such as Backup and Sync or InSync in order to push files to your Google Drive storage.


You can download Creative Commons licensed videos and upload them encrypted on Telegram with PGPgram (not a web app though).
