A little bit old thread by now but still very interesting topic IMO.

Personal I try to avoid install too many addons as I had my fare share of PUPs and crapware etc. Recently found a service that seams to work flawless. Even able to add custom resolution and it also works on many other videosites. Check here if you like: Convert YouTube videos to MP3, MP4, AVI - N°1 Online Video Converter

I use my own "home made" program (one, for all website file I need ).
I don't trust other tools/website for this purpose.

I made, few days ago, a post on the following thread

FOR INFORMATION PURPOSE ONLY :rolleyes:

GUIDE - IDM cannot Download Youtube Videos


The first part can be helpful for programmers.
- when in the links found in the source page there is the parameter "signature", it means the video / audio file isn't protected : the link can be directly used.
- Else, it uses the parameter "s" or "sig"
=> the method I describe is to decrypt s => signature

In the second part you can see how to retrieve the URL to download the video with only a browser (no addon needed)
=> Begin with "When playing a video on YouTube, the browser will make the job for you"
- You can even find the "sound" file only :)
(not a too complicated method, but a safe method :p)​

But remember :

FOR INFORMATION PURPOSE ONLY :D

Just out of curiosity, will we ran into legal issue if we're downloading Youtube videos? Most of them are copyrighted videos correct?

- Some videos use a protection schema like I describe, others can be downloaded without have need to break their encoded sig, by some tricks
- but that's always without using a direct link on their website, so YES I think the people that do so ran into legal issue.
- The same way, legal issue for people downloading mp3 or files (TV shows, films) without paying.
When you use your browser to watch a video on YouTube, all the job is done naturally. If protected, the browser deprotected the link. Parts of this video are downloaded when you are watching it.
=> So retrieving this link when you browser do its job reading a youtube video, and use it to download the whole video, is it running into legal issue ? And discovering this link, by looking the http traffic, also ? May be.
Let's if you download it this way to see it, without the aim to keep it :rolleyes:, is ok
