How to Download Your Watch Later Playlist Videos Before They’re Taken Down

YouTube is the biggest video streaming service where you can find videos on literally every existing topic. No wonder that with so much content available, you might simply have no time to watch everything you want to. That’s where the Watch Later playlist comes in.

Unfortunately, if you save a video to this playlist, it doesn’t mean it can’t be gone—a creator might delete or hide it as a private piece, YouTube might delete it for violating the service’s terms of use, or videos might get taken down by rights-holders due to copyright infringement. Such cases are numerous. How to make sure the videos you want to watch later are safe and don’t go anywhere? Use 4K Video Downloader+.

How to Find Your ‘Watch Later’ Playlist on YouTube

The Watch Later playlist is a convenient tool for organising a collection of YouTube videos that you may not have the time to watch immediately but wish to view later. This feature allows you to compile videos in one designated place, eliminating the need to recall channel names or sift through various channels to locate desired content.

Here’s how to find the Watch Later playlist on mobile devices and desktop computers.

Here are the steps for users accessing YouTube on their smartphones:

  1. Open the YouTube app.

  2. Navigate to the Library icon in the bottom-right corner.

  3. Tap on "Watch Later" under Playlists. Whether you are using an iPhone, iPad, or Android device, these instructions should be applicable across different operating systems.

  2. Sign in to your account if necessary.

  3. Click on the three horizontal lines in the top-left corner.
