    One simple Google search brought me to this:
    https://rg3.github.io/youtube-dl/

    It works well. You just need to pass the url of the video as the first argument on the command line.

    Use Firefox and this extension

    EDIT: If you do not use Firefox or refuse to for some reason, it has a userscript version also

    It's faster to just google it you moron.
    Reduces the amount of shit threads too full of stupid questions that take 5 seconds to answer.

    Was the name-calling necessary? Anyways, keepvid and the like also gives you a choice of formats to use when downloading.

    Gives you a range of resolutions to download with including audio only or video only or just their subtitles. Also in various formats including 3gp, mp4 or flv
