How To Convert YouTube Shorts to Regular Videos Easily


Staff member
Doesn't really "convert" the video so much as it just allows you to play it in a non-cancerous format. Stumbled across this solution given by Tiaabiamillan on Reddit.

Take the video's id which comes after https://www.youtube.com/shorts/ and put it at the end of https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=

I just go to my history, "watch" whatever, paste the whole url of the yt short behind what's in the address bar, delete what I don't need, and press enter. Done.
