    Lots of free utilities out there. Try Google to find one for your specific browser.

    Downloading YouTube videos is most likely illegal. Just saying.

    You can also try to capture it using VLC Player (it's free)

    VLC (WINDOWS, MAC OS, LINUX)

    Step 1: Navigate to the YouTube video you’d like to download in your browser, and copy the URL. Then, launch VLC as you would normally, and click “Media” in the menu bar, followed by “Open Network Stream”. Once done, paste your YouTube URL in the box housed within the Network tab, and click “Open”. Your video will automatically start playing in VLC.

    Step 2: If you’re using Windows, select “Tools” in the toolbar at the top and select “Codec Information” from the resulting drop-down menu. 

    This will bring up a screen with various information about the video, but we’re only interested in the “Location” bar at the bottom. This will showcase the exact URL for your video, directly from Google’s servers. Go ahead and copy the link and paste it in the address bar of your browser.

    Step 3: The video will then play within your browser. Right-click the video, click “Save As” and wait for the download to complete. That’s it! The video is now on your hard drive.
