Don't indicate published date in the file name while downloading video. That is mean that option [published_date] in the file-naming patern didn't work.

THE BENCH MARK Rated 5 out of 5 stars

OUT FREAK-EN UNDERSTANDING. I REALIZE THERE IS A MILLION AH WELL PLUS OR MINUS A FEW THOUSAND VIDEO DOWN LOADRERS. HELL IT SEEMS THAT WAY. BUT WHO THE HELL CARES, WHAT MATTERS TO ME IS THAT THIS ONE DOES WHAT I NEED IT TO DO. E.G. SOMETIMES I JUST WANT THE VIDEO AND AUDIO SOUND. OFTEN TIMES I JUST WANT THE AUDIO . HELL THAT'S AWESOME. THAT'S A FEATURE OTHER DOWN LOADERS DON'T HAVE. I'VE LOOKED.IF THERE'S ONE OUT THERE SO FREAK-EN WHAT. I'M A KNUCKLEHEAD FOR WASTING MY TIME. I'M NOT SEARCHING ANYMORE. WHY SHOULD I. TO DO SO WOULD BE LUDICROUS . THIS VIDEO DOWN LOADER SHOULD BE THE STANDARD BY WHICH ALL OTHER JIVE ASS DOWN LOADERS ARE MEASURED. I'M OUT. pablo

Best YouTube Video Downloader by Far Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This beats other YouTube video downloaders hands-down. It works, it can get you 1080p video and seamlessly add AAC audio to it (because for some unfathomable reason YouTube separates 1080p video and audio streams, so they have to be downloaded separately and combined with FFMpeg - which this add-on does automatically), and there are no annoying ads.

My main complaints with the add-on have been fixed with the 0.4.5 update so I've changed my review to 5 stars. Unfortunately a new issue has arisen, but is the fault of changes made by YouTube. For some stupid reason YouTube has stopped providing a separate 256kbps CBR AAC audio track and the highest quality audio now available to mux with 1080p MP4 videos is 128kbps CBR AAC. However 720p video+audio streams still contain ~192kbps VBR AAC audio. But since YouTube doesn't stream 1080p video+audio streams, your options are 1080p with 128kbps audio or 720p with 192kbps audio. Hopefully YouTube changes this soon. But until they do, here are the features I would like to see the developers of this add-on integrate:

1) Come up with a way to extract the audio from the 720p stream and remux it with the 1080p video stream.
2) Add a batch download feature (e.g., ability to select multiple videos from a playlist or search page)
3) Not a feature, just a suggestion: when opening the in-video download interface, some of the options say "video only." This can be confusing since it actually means that the add-on will download the video and audio streams separately and combine them, not just the video by itself.

Hands down the best video downloader Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I can only compare it to Video DownloadHelper, the previous reference I had when it comes to video downloading, specially from YouTube. I have them both installed, as VDH still does a great job 'cause it's still more mature and its broad range of covered sites is also second to none.

I prefer YouTube Video and Audio Downloader for YouTube, however. The devs did a great job on specializing it. On that matter, I really like that:
* the current downloads are named after the video title (helps on organizing multiple downloads, VDH calls them "media*")
* it relies on great and FREE FFMPEG to do some of the manipulation, while VDH relies on an unregistered libav (it's very good also, but lack of a $29 registration gives you a big QR sign on a video corner)
* its UI is more beautiful and quick - ok, that's low priority :-)

Only problem I've experienced so far is that, due to the way YouTube loads videos, the Download button may not appear most of the time - that really sucks. I worked around that by having the toolbar button available (and first time I thought about it, I also didn't find it - had to wait between some restarts for it to appear again), so I can quickly use its popup. Worked around that almost permanently by using the Quick Download hotkey (as most of the time, I download using the highest quality available), but I know that won't cover all of the cases.

I agree with most of the review thkbrew89 has done below, maybe except for item 2, as I didn't find any problems with that - so far.

Keep up the good work, guys, and thanks for such a very good extension!

Bad update Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Poor update. I used to be able to use this to download audio files. Now with the new update it drastically reduces the download options and only gives me video download options. Now I can no longer use this for the purposes of downloaded audio :P

Богатейший функционал при потрясающем удобстве Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Первое дополнение для скачки с Ютуба, которое у меня, как у жуткого гика, не вызывает нареканий по функциональности. Наконец-то можно не париться с самостоятельным объединением видео- и аудиопотоков после скачивания. Это несложно. Но задалбывает. Отдельный плюс - за использование православного ffmpeg, а не самопальных поделок на коленке.

Но самое главное - даже не эта навороченность, а... как ни странно, чрезвычайно высокий показатель юзабилити. Всё сделано очень удобно для простого пользователя, и в большинстве случаев - однокнопочное.

В общем, браво!

P.S.: это первое расширение, которое настолько круто, что замотивировало меня оставить отзыв.
