How to Download All YouTube Videos from a Channel Online?
If you find it troublesome to download and launch an app, perhaps an online YouTube channel downloader is right for you. As an online downloader, YouTube Multi Downloader is a tool marked by free-premium, free ads and user security, compared with other online downloaders such as Y2Mate and SaveFrom.
Nonetheless, when it comes to the quality, the maximum quality of videos it supports is no more than 720p; if you are about to download videos above 1080p, only no-audio ones are available. More annoyingly, there is no one-click operation for YouTube channel download. You have to download all videos from YouTube channels with the tiresome repeating click-download-click operation.
But still, it is a good choice for downloading just a small number of videos from YouTube channels. Here is the tutorial on downloading all videos from YouTube channels using YouTube Multi Downloader.
Step 1 Copy the URL of the YouTube channel you want to download.
Step 2 Open YouTube Multi Downloader and select the quality and format based on your needs.
Step 3 Paste the URL you previously copied into the bar next to Playlist Link, then hit the "Download" button. After the automatic parse of the URL, this online YouTube channel downloader will show you a list of videos on the YouTube channel.
Step 4 Download the video via:
- Right-click the button like MP4 720 under Download;
- Roll down and selecting the Save link as … option;
- Choose a file to save them and then hit the Save button;
Step 5 Repeat the operation in the previous step until all videos from YouTube channels are downloaded.
We can see from the steps mentioned above that this online YouTube channel downloader allows no YouTube batch download, which is appropriate for downloading a small number of videos.
How to Download Entire YouTube Channel with Youtube-DL?
Of course, you can also run a command via Command Prompt to download all videos from YouTube channels, apart from Inovideo and YouTube Multi Downloader.
As a Python-based command-line downloader manager available for Windows and Mac, YouTube-DL is accessible for YouTube channel download and video download from other websites such as Facebook, Instagram, and Bilibili. As for the video quality, it can provide downloads up to 1080p, a high-quality relish.
However, this YouTube channel downloader is more complicated to operate, compared with the previous 2 ways, for its cumbersome installation procedure, which is quite not friendly for a novice to download. What's worse, the downloadable format is restricted to MP4, making it less competitive compared with other YouTube channel downloaders.
If you plan to continue, here comes the guidance of downloading all videos from YouTube channels with the help of YouTube-DL.
Step 1 To start using youtube-dl, you need to head to Github and search for "youtube-dl.exe". Click it to download it.
Step 2 Create a folder in the location where you want to place the youtube-dl.exe and drag the file into it.

Step 6 On the Edit environment variable window, click the "New" button and type the location of the folder where you placed the youtube-dl.exe file. After that, hit the "OK" button to save your setting.
Step 7 Navigate to the YouTube channel you want to download and copy its URL from the browser address bar.
