    If you're not afraid of the CLI, this is by far the best option.

    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

    Specifically for Youtube this tool is great. Usually for facebook, vine etc I look for separate services.

    Yout downloads the audio from any YouTube video into an MP3 format, which might be more useful than the video depending on your use case.

    This is another one for YouTube. What is magic about this one is that you don't have to download a tool itself. Simply put in 'conv' into the URL and hit enter to download

    This is more technical, using the Command Line to download media...put it's not YouTube specific so may be worth testing on other sites.
