    I'm using


    and if using the above still cannot download some videos I use

    Video Downloader Professional extension for Chrome/FF. It'll kickstart IDM/EagleGet to download once it found the video which isn't detected by IDM/EagleGet :cool:(y)

    Last time I had used Jdownloader(way back) it came with bundleware although 'solve captcha automatically' option was not bad.I was using Uget with flashgot extension to make it default in Windows 7.Uget is pretty good, nice and clean UI.Right now using Xtreme download manager successfully on Windows 10. No complaints.
    Other mentions : Internet download accelerator which is free for personal use and Ninja download manager free(some restrictions on download quality but it's video converter is great).
    If you are an avid youtuber and don't need anything else Slim Browser (portable if you may) can directly download youtube videos and extract audio as well.Feel free to use it with another limited but needed download manager.
