    By safely, I mean that the video I steal from someone else and upload to my account doesn't get blocked/banned etc. I don't mind giving the original uploader credit. My mission is not to rank the videos so I don't care about rankings. I need to use them on my website as how-to/instructional videos.

    Or how about I steal the video from YouTube and upload it onto other sites such as Vimeo (recommend the best one?) and then put that on the website? Is this better to do?

    i think in my experience, is better if you upload the video in another Video Upload Service, or web-site like Vimeo, dailymotion, and vid.me! youtube is too famous to steal and post the same video, if you want to use in ur web-site just upload in a "unfamous" video web-site upload, i think you have a mininal chance to get baneed or ur video deleted!

    I know there is slightly more risk because the uploader of the video can block your website or delete the video at some point. But you can just embed the video directly onto your website, there's no need to try to download and reupload it like that. Plus if you don't mind giving the original uploader credit, that's the best way to do it!

    As UptonGoodwin said why not just embedd the video on your site, It's then all legal as the video plays exactly as it would on Youtube. Easy to do, i have built whole video sites by embedding videos from youtube
