just a side note: older youtube videos appear to use FLV format, but using the HD (720p, 1080p) options usually result in MP4 format  (for those who use IE to search for the cached Youtube files in the cache folder). If the video isn't completely downloaded yet, usually the name is FLA??.tmp in the Temp folder.

I use Jdownloader 2 to download YT videos almost daily. Still works.

Still JDownloader. You can use it to download any combination of streams from youtube (and a bunch of other sites).

This is the linkgrabber window after copying the youtube URL of a video to the clipboard. It shows an audio-only stream, a combined A/V stream, the thumbnail picture, and subtitles (if any).


If you click the drop-down arrow on the audio or video steam it brings up a list of variants and you can choose what quality audio or video to download.


You can also configure the plugins to specify which streams you're interested in grabbing. Don't like VP1/OGG? Uncheck it from the plugin config and JDownloader won't grab those streams for you anymore in the future. You can also set a preferred quality level, etc.
