Since it's against Youtube's Terms of Service to download their videos (see below), it's therefore against our Forum Policies to discuss such items..

Primarily, Youtube videos aren't of high quality in the first place, (The size requirements for high quality videos is beyond any site's capacity), and second, any programs/sites which offer copying options don't provide high quality tools.. So, if you actually have permission from the owner of the video, why not ask the owner for a copy?.. You'll get the best quality copy available.

Hope this helps.
Recently went to an ACDC concert...and video was captured of me shaking hands with the lead singer. I have permission from the video owner to download it and I have tried maybe 10 different applications to download..but each one gives me far lower quality video than what is originally on youtube, grainy, choppy etc. Any surefire tricks tips to getting a good quality download from youtube?
