8. In the Share video window that opens, tap the Copy option to copy the video URL.

9. Press the Home button again and open the Documents app once more.

10. Tap your finger on the Enter the video’s link here text box. Once the on-screen keyboard appears, press and hold your finger in the text box to bring up the Paste option. Tap the Paste option to paste the YouTube video URL in the text box.

14. The video is downloaded to the iPad or iPhone, in the Documents app. Tap the Downloads icon at the bottom right of the screen (an arrow pointing down with a line under it) to see the video download progress.

15. Once the video has finished downloading, tap the video file name to open the Documents screen. If the video starts to play, stop the video and press Done to exit the video.

16. Tap the Downloads folder icon to view the downloaded video file. When the video download is complete, tap Close in the upper-left corner.
