This post has the top method that is 100% effective to get videos from YouKu in MP4 HD quality for Android, iPhone or computer and why it's more preferable than YouKu downloaders online.

Step 3: Select the format, resolution and corresponding file size you want. You can save YouKu videos in HD MP4, FLV, WebM, AVI etc.
Step 4: Set an output folder to process videos from YouKu Tudou to computer. Then click "Download Now" and start the YouKu video process.

The free YouKu downloader has an obvious downloading speed advantage over other tools. Specifically, it's about 5x faster than average online video downloading speed currently.
It's more reliable than online solutions to how to grab YouKu videos without software. For example, it works with the same video when online YouKu video apps say "This Page has no download links or is temporarily blocked. try later".

How to Access YouKu Outside China

The precondition for any YouKu Tudou videos download or playback is the ability to access the site. But mind that you're able to access YouKu only in mainland China. For example, you may be familiar with the message "Sorry, this video can only be streamed within Mainland China." For those who don't even know how to access blocked YouKu videos outside China, there are ways.

1. Unblock YouKu for Chrome/Firefox - Unblock YouKu is an add-on for Chrome and Firefox browsers. The plug-in is designed to help users outside China access YouKu blocked videos. Simply add the extension on the browser and then you can freely stream and also download YouKu videos with the downloader above.
2. Unblock YouKu videos on mobiles - The add-on Unblock YouKu works with browsers only. To unblock YouKu videos on iPhone, iPad and Android, capable VPN can help. VPN can bypass the geographical restriction and give you a China IP. VPNs that you can use to stream and download YouKu mp4 videos outside China on mobiles include ExpressVPN, Pure VPN, Vypr VPN, NordVPN etc.
