For years, it was possible to download videos from YouTube for free with a browser plugin, and while some browsers still give you that functionality, the most common browser out there - Chrome - won't. Google owns both platforms, and doesn't want you to get your hands on what they see as "their property" despite the fact they do not own it at all! (What they really want, is you not having the ability to view the videos without a chance to inject their advertising into your viewtime, let's be honest.)

After a bit of a hunt, I stumbled across this little gem - a stand-alone app for Windows that you simply throw the URL of the video at, and it downloads it. No fancy API's, no overly-complication grab/crop/convert/save processes... You just browse to the video you want, grab the page address from your browser's address bar and hit ctrl-c to copy it to the clipboard, switch to the downloader and click the 'paste' button and it polls YT for the clip info. Once you have queued up all the clips you want - you don't have to do them one at a time - you hit the 'download' button and wander off to do other things.

In the free version, you are restricted to downloading the lowest quality version available - minimal resolution, lowest grade sound. For some clips, this is going to result in a barely-watchable mess... but this is more to do with the options set by the original uploader, than any fault of the app. Most videos I tested this with, I got some fairly watchable clips with decent sound. Maybe one or two duds out of the 40 or so clips I tried.

However, pay for Premium, and you get access to every available combination of sound and video resolution - and you can just go into the settings and tell the app "Gimme the best you can find" and it will. This makes for a much better result at the end of the process, obviously. However, ONLY use these settings if you have really good broadband, or you may be waiting a while. I would NOT recommend this for those on ADSL, or god-forbid, dial-up users. (Yes, there are a few out there still!) Those on Rural WiFi may have some issues depending on weather-induced throttling over the wetter months, but hey... you expect that anyway so, no biggie, right?

Overall, while I think the price will put some off, I think it's a small price to pay for not having to mess around with overly-complicated browser plug-ins or screengrab software, which often results in glitches if you click away to another tab or app. We, the masses, put the content on YouTube so that the world can see it, not so that Google can monetise it.
