Youtube Recently Announced A Feature That Will Enable You Legally Allow You Download And Watch Videos Offline … Now we are getting few more details regarding how this new feature will work.
Google sent out an e-mail to its commercial YouTube partners that gave them a heads up and elaborated on how the offline viewing system will work for both uploaders and viewers. Once it rolls out, users of the YouTube mobile app will get access to an “add to device” feature on videos and playlists which will then be added to a new “on device” section of their YouTube guide page.
The new feature is enabled by default for all content and partners who are unwilling to allow access to their content this way should tell Google before the feature launches. Partners can opt out of it on various levels. An owner or partner level will disable all content for offline viewing but partners can also choose to disable content on a per asset, video, or country basis.
Even if the video are offline, Ads will still appear in these videos and users will have 48 hours to watch these videos in offline mode.
