- If you're not afraid of the CLI, this is by far the best option.I use youtube-dl. Works like a charm.This is the best way to do it. You can extract just audio, download entire playlist etc. If you're on a mac and using homebrew just follow this steps and you are golden. brew install youtube-dl brew install libvpx brew install ffmpeg (to convert videos to mp4 etc) and then run this command to download the video or playlist into mp4 format youtube-dl -f mp4 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yourvideo

- Tubulator is a combined media browser/download desktop app. I'm using the Mac version, but a Windows version is available as well. Tubulator lets you search, browse and download both video and audio - the latter as MP3. It supports browsing downloading entire channels and playlists, and integrates with iTunes to a certain degree as well.
- Their bookmarklet allows me to download any video from various sites (youtube, facebook, vimeo, soundcloud, instagram and twitch to name a few) Or you can just copy paste your video link and download the file with any format you want
