We all know that we should back up our video files on a regular basis and how disruptive and even devastating it can be to lose our entire library of video content.

YouTube is the #1 medium to distribute your videos.

However, there are certain limitations when you upload video to YouTube. Those are:

  • YouTube converts uploaded videos to its own format with some loss of clarity. Which is no match to your original video.
  • Download options for YouTube video is very limited.
  • Finally the Big One!!!!
    If YouTube chooses to delete your video or suspend your account, all your videos are completely gone. Of course this also can happen if some hacker gains access to your account.

So backing up is vital.

However, only a few people actually store their original videos on local hard drives or even on the poor DVD. It’s not that you don’t want to back up your YouTube channel videos, it’s just difficult to maintain local copies.

Lets first see how you can backup your existing videos.

Luckily, any video files uploaded in the past to YouTube can easily be salvaged by the channel owner as the site keeps a copy of all your uploaded video content.

There are TWO WAYS to do this…

1. *Best Option* –
Download Your Entire Archive Collection Of Videos at Once

If you have a substantial number of videos, or want to download more than two per hour then the best option is to download your whole collection in one go

1) Make sure you are signed into the YouTube account that you need your video content from.

2) Then click on the the following link:
https://www.google.com/takeout/#custom:youtube

2) Select YouTube from the list of the Google products.

3) Configure the Settings for the Archive of your YouTube Videos

4) Click the button ‘Create Archive

Google Drive file storage5) Once created, you can download the full collection to your computer so that you have a second copy (first one will be on your Google Drive).

Which is beneficial as Google Drive not only makes it easy to backup your YouTube videos, but also makes video management simple. You can download backup videos any time, email directly as attachments, sync them locally and even preview them in Google Drive.

6) So Backup. Back up. Back up.

2. Downloading The Individual MP4 File Via Video Manager

If you just need to download a few video files then this is a quick and easy way of doing it.

However keep in mind that you can only download a maximum of two videos per hour and the video file will be compressed, not the original version.

1) Make sure you are signed into the YouTube account

2) Go to Creator Studio

4) Click on the down arrow next to the video that you need to download.YouTube MP4 Individual Download- Step 1

“You see things and say, ‘Why?’ But I dream things that
never were and say, ‘Why not?'”

~ George Bernard Shaw

For most of us, time — or lack thereof — seems to be an issue. It doesn’t matter if your an entrepreneur, business owner, or a parent. We are always on the lookout for great ways to squeeze more time out of the day.

Like most of us, we love being effective with our work, and family/ me time. We like spending as much time as possible with our family. When it comes to “me” time, well…
Nicky love’s watching TV shows, and we figured out a way to do this faster, too…

Which is Speed Watching.

This is the act of watching videos at faster playback speeds than normal. On YouTube, Openload and with programs like VLC, you can do this by selecting your own speed of playback.
Settings to Speed up Youtube VideosWhile 1x speed would play a video at normal speed, 2x speed would play a video twice as quickly and thus save you half the time.

But What About Comprehension?

Can you watch video that’s moving that quickly and still understand what’s going on? The answer is yes, and unlike speed reading, you don’t really need any practice to get started.

Tip: Now you can’t just go from 1x speed to 2x speed. Watch the videos below and you will understand why. You have to take a natural progression. Nicky started at 1.2x speed and built the speed up. While Dave likes 1.2x speed just fine.

If you started watching all your videos at 1.2x speed today, you’d immediately save more time and not lose any comprehension at all.

As you continue to speed watch, higher speeds get easier and easier to comprehend. I’ve (Nicky) has been speed watching for the last 3 years, and feel fairly comfortable watching at 2x the normal viewing speed, with some types of videos.

Speed of Youtube VideosAt the very least 1.2x speed does save you 20% time per each video.

So to take back the lost time that you didn’t realize you had in the first place, try speed watching. It might just help you binge-watch your favorite TV shows, TED Talks, or the next education video that you want (or even required) to watch.

No, we am not suggesting you watch everything fast. But perhaps you will adapt the 1.2x speed to most of you videos, so you will understand them 20% faster. While you cannot make more time, we think this is a good time hacking method – to free up some of your previously used time.
