How to Download a Part of YouTube Video?

Download a Part of YouTube Video using Clip Converter

Most people download the whole YouTube video even when he needs a small portion of that video. And certainly this wastes huge amount of data as well as valuable time. But you can easily cut an YouTube video and download only the part you need out of a large video! 

Background Story

Couple of weeks ago I was searching for an old Bengali song on YouTube. But it was not available in the largest video sharing site of the world! Fortunately, I got the full movie instead of the song. And that movie is 2.5 hours long. What should I do now? Download the full movie for a 5-minute song? Even the 3gp format of this movie is over 400 MB. When the song is only 12 MB. 

Though I know hundreds of different ways to download videos from YouTube, but I never think of downloading a small part. Then I googled to find out a way. And you will be happy to know that I got something there! Today I'm gonna share how to download a part of YouTube video instead of full video. 

Clip Converter: Free Online Media Recorder

Actually I'm gonna talking about a site which will do the cutting process for you - Clip Converter. With the help of this site, you can - 
  • Download & Convert Videos into MP3, MP4, 3GP, AVI etc.
  • Cut and download a specific portion of the large videos.


First of all, you need to find your desired video from YouTube. Then open that video and copy the URL from the address bar. You can close YouTube to save your bandwidth. Now follow the link below: 

Paste the video link in Media URL option and hit on the Continue button. After hitting the Continue button, this site will be looking for necessary information of the video ie. screenshot, filename etc.

Now if you simply wanna download the video, without cutting or converting, choose the download format from available options ie. MP3, MP4 or 3GP. Then hit on the Start button. You will be redirected and wait for a few seconds to get the Download button. When the Download button appears, download the video. 

Downloading the Part of a Video

The procedure is almost similar to the previous one. You have to enter the video URL and then choose a download format ie. 3GP. But you need to choose conversion options here as follows:

Here I choose 3GP format. When you unmark the options Start of Video and End of Video, you will be able to cut the video. But you must know the exact time of the part you wanna download. Now enter the starting and the ending time of your video as HH:MM:SS. Then hit on the Start button and wait for the download button to be appeared. As soon as you get the download button, you can download your specific part of the video! 

Note: Always load this site completely. Otherwise some button could be missing and you may not be able to see the Download button. 

Remember, there are several large download buttons in this site. Never click on these download buttons. Because these are Ads only. Only use those buttons which shows in my screenshots.
