In order to download YouTube videos, you need a third party program to help you. I'd suggest using Clone2Go Free YouTube Downloader. Let's take a look at how it performs:
Download the latest version of Free YouTube Downloader and install it. Launch the program.
Visit youtube.com and open the YouTube videos you are going to download. Copy the URL of each video. You can get the URL of the video from the address bar of your browser.
Click the "YouTube" button in the main interface of Video Converter Free. In the pop up dialog of "Import Video from Internet", paste the URL of the YouTube video you copied just now.
There will be a list of the added YouTube videos.
Double click the YouTube videos one by one to get the downloading process started. The downloading status is clearly shown on the list. After the status of all of them indicates "Completed", you can get the downloaded videos (in mp4, flv or 3gp format) by clicking the "Folder" button in the interface of the program.
If you want to watch the downloaded YouTube videos on iPad, you can upgrade to Video Converter Professional to convert the downloaded flv, mp4 or 3gp videos to the video format iPad accepts. Then you can feel free to watch the YouTube videos on your iPad.
After import the output videos to Video Converter Professional, choose "iPod/iPad" category from the "Profile" menu and take "iPad MPEG4 Video" as the output format.
