Unfortunately, it is not possible to save in MP3 directly. Download the Opus audio format if you want the best quality. Find a player that can play it directly instead of transcoding to MP3.
AAC is fixed at 128 kbps and cuts off at 16 kHz.…
Hi, I've found the reason.
Unfortunately, you have to use other tools if you want VP9.
For these videos, the stream is broken into fragments. This video has 566 fragments! Since the video is only 50 mins, each fragment is only 5.3s. I suspect it i…
I tried to upload a screenshot of the video format icons, but it didn't work.
For this video, I can see the size for 1080p M4V and download it. VP9 shows 0 kB and cannot be downloaded. Is this what you are referring to?
Only 720p/MP4 will use the title as the filename.
For the others, you need to click on the 'link', it will copy the title to the clipboard. (You will see it flash.) When you save-as, paste it as the filename. ;)
This is expected. The only two videos with audio are 720P/MP4 and 360P/MP4, for legacy devices.
For others, you need to download the audio stream separately and mux them yourself. Some media players will automatically look for the audio file with t…
Left-click only copies the title to the clipboard.
You need to right-click and choose 'save-as'. The copied title will come in useful here as you can paste it in the filename dialog box.
It works this way due to limitations imposed by YouTube.
Hi @Nitto-Huang, thanks for your feedback.
This is expected. If you want minimal fuss, download 720p/MP4. For the others, the video and audio streams are separate and you have to mux them after downloading.
When I'm lazy, I use youtube-dl.…
The reason is that most browsers will play the videos if you left-click on the links.
The exception is 720p/MP4 video (YouTube tells browser to download the video) and Edge browser. On Edge browser, you can click to save.
Since v2, clicking on the…
This is due to how YouTube works. You have to download the video and audio streams and mux them yourself.
The only two videos with audio are 720p/MP4 and 360p/MP4. I presume they are for older devices.
Hi, thanks for your feedback.
YouTube Links will hide low-bitrate audio if there is at least one above 96 kbps.
itag 171 is 87.8 kbps and itag 251 is 94.67 kbps.
Perhaps this requires some tweaking in view of super-efficient OPUS.
