In China? I don't suppose you can access youtube videos but in the event you can there are a number of YT downloader options.

         I won't want to mention a specific name but suppose you use Firefox browser - they have several 'add-ons' you can click and integrate right into the browser and some will even put a 'Download' button next to any video.

There are a number of free independent software programs (maybe they are a bit better or more options) you could find from trusted sites like 'download' .com 

 

(I use Opera and its got a little add-on that works for any videos).

 

I don't keep up with YT but I'm told they just have their own download option now? Like right under the video says 'download'. 

WhiteBear:

this what You describe is exactly real-player plugin... "download" button by every "downloadable" movie :)

jknox00:

Real Player. This is a specific commercial software vendor with their own supported file-types, advertizer and 'pay service' supported programs. 

       I do see, after installing Real Player, they do have a function allowing one to download videos,

however,

I would not recommend Real Player for that very reason that it is heavily commercialized and installs a whole lot of software and will nag you to buy this and subscribe to that at every turn.

              IF your simple objective is to download videos from YT you can do better I'm sure.

*but then again, I won't allow 'Real' on my computers so if you tried it and like it then maybe it's just great.

There are a lot of downloaders..
don't like ReaPlayer or extensions..
the best in business are 
for Windows and Mac...
http://www.freemake.com/downloads/
downloads not only YT but basically everything,,vimeo, blip, dailymotion..etc 
plus it will convert videos for you to different formats plus if you want tune only but no video it will do that for you as well.
plus it will convert to mp3 or whatever (if you want to).
cannot beat that
Note:
Windows needs Net Framework 4 that it will download for you from M$  
and install it for you during overall installation..

For Linux platform the best in business is this baby: 
link: 
http://xviservicethief.sourceforge.net/
very similar..as freemake for Win & Mac
