Download YouTube button missing

About: Download YouTube Videos as MP4
On my desktop for a couple of years I've had the download button for YouTube videos working. Lately the button is missing. I just installed on my wife's laptop and do not see the button. Both are running Windows 10 and Chrome with all the latest updates for both.


  • I have the same problem.
  • I found this solution, it worked for me.
  • I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong but I cannot get produce the image you show.
  • I do have Youtube Best Video Downloader 2 installed
  • I now get the following message
    WARNING : Best Video Downloader 2 is not compatible with the experimental YouTube Material Layout
    which is under BETA testing.

    Click here for instructions on how to continue using the video downloading features.
    This addon will get migrated to the new layout when Youtube makes the BETA design as default, make sure you are configured for auto-updates.

    There are two links neither fixes the issue. I do NOT see the functions shown in the images.
  • YouTube has been designed to only allow users to watch and view videos on their website. Actually, no button near Utube except you downloaded some extensions. I usually download YouTube at copy youtube url to the program, every video can be downloaded at several minutes, or download video in bulk, maybe you should try this, good luck man...
  • where is the button? restored old youtube, still no button!
