Backup your YouTube Videos : Download as MP4

YouTube has finally added an option which allows you to download  YouTube videos which you have created and uploaded using your YouTube Account. This means you cannot download videos from any other account but only yours.

This is useful in situation where you have lost the original video you created and re-creating the video again is either not possible or will take a lot of time to convert the raw video.
