2) Solution for the above question.

It seems that YouTube Offline feature is expected to work that way, in specific regions/countries.

In India, those offline videos are not removed at all(unless YOU remove them or uninstall updates of YouTube app or if you connect the device to internet even once during the 48-hour window, the YouTube app will be able to verify the status and will refresh the 48-hour deadline.)

But in some specific regions/countries videos are removed after 48-hr expiry time.

One rule about YouTube offline videos: Anything you save will be accessible for 48 hours in the offline section on the left-hand sliding menu.

Here are some suggestions from other users who came cross the same problem as you

  • Change the date of your device and disconnect it from Internet. Change date to the one you downloaded.
  • The offline videos are often saved as .exo file format which can only played by YouTube videos. You can try to convert .exo to .mp4
  • Use a YouTube down loader app (YouTube down loader?) to completely download the videos without 48-hour limit.
