I have been having over and over the same problem: inability to easily download in highest possible quality videos from at least YouTube


I thought that http://www.clipconverter.cc was the answer, but aside from recently self-implemented restrictions, it found out that is has the same flaw as other sites and plugins for Firefox that I've recently tried: it is able to get a video in the highest resolution, but downloads it with a lesser audio quality that there is. And I know this because I can with compare in spectrogam a downloaded file with a file containing a what-you-hear recording of the same content played from the source location [as it turns out, what I hear on YouTube has usually 20 kHz, and various plugins save files with only 16kHz]

Does anyone know a free of charge site, plugin [not necessarily for Firefox] or software [for Windows 7 x64], than can download videos with both best available video and audio quality; without additional transcoding?


[I have a tested and working solution: http://www.tecmint.com/install-youtube-dl-...-download-tool/; but it requires way too many steps / manuall work and automating them with a script is way beyond my capabilities and thus I will be using it only as a last resort for some single problematic cases]

In most cases, you choose what kind of resolution you need before downloading video from YouTube, and then you can output the downloaded video to any hot devices including Apple devices, Samsung, 4K TV etc, as well as many file formats. For example, you can convert Youtube to wmv, if you want to play the video on the wmv-based players or devices. cool.gif

Cases of what? Web browser plugins and other means of downloading?

Quality of video was never the issue

It is the preservation of the original audio quality that is [was] the problem
