  • Not possible for now. And I don't think Google will let us to change that in the future too.

Is it possible to change YouTube's offline video path to an external memory path?

This is currently not supported using official YouTube App.

The location for those offline videos is something similar to below:

Internal storage/Android/data/com.google.android.youtube/files/Offline/(system generated folder name)/streams

And more so, YouTube controls access to the offline file.

The permission is controlled on their server per account basis, to access those downloaded files.

Any external path as in Memory card I suppose. You can select/unselect your download path in YouTube -> Settings -> Offline -> Use SD card.
