How awesome it would be if you could watch those videos again and again without need to pay for data and take the videos with you wherever you go? with in coming weeks, much of the YouTube videos will be available offline in India. This is huge and our users will really, really like this. You can download any video once and save it your phone and watch it again and again. [/quote]

This service from Google is not restricted to music videos and the users will have also the ability to download any video of the service and store them offline.
