You want to view the video on a mobile device or phone such as an iPod, iPad, iPhone, MP3-player, MP4-player, Zune, PSP, ...
You have a slow internet connection or you're viewing HD video, which causes buffering delays while streaming video.
You want to make sure you don't lose the video when it's removed or altered by YouTube or by the author.
You're only interested in a specific part of the video and you'd like to cut out any parts you don't need.
