5. Select All YouTube Data Included and choose videos if you only want to export your YouTube videos.

Note: Google will export your uploaded YouTube videos in the original format / MP4. Per Google, either your originally uploaded videos or a high-quality transcode.


6. Click Next step.


7. Select export frequency, file type & size, then click Create export.


Depending on the size and number of videos your YouTube channel has, the process could take a few days. Google will email once your export is ready to be downloaded.
