You will need to download and install a third party application to acheive this as recent Google lawsuits have established that downloading materials from YouTube is clearly against its terms of service.

I think you can, but frankly - Google change things so frequently... who knows?
I'll pin this to the frontpage, and maybe somebody can check.

That is a given, but I thought the official Youtube app lets you preload (cache) videos via Wifi so that you can watch them later when you're offline?

I remember reading about this feature but it has never worked for me!

I never tried it myself, but here's one of the many tutorials http://www.guplum.com/preload-youtube-videos-android-watch-later-offline-viewing/

Of course, with Android a 7 months old how-to is pretty useless :p
It's one of the reasons I never really tried it: the moment you get used to a good Android feature, Google changes it LOL
Also: I watch youtube clips on my phone about once or twice per decade.
