How to rip 1080p youtubes

Postby Niolani » Sun Nov 30, 2014 10:44 am

If anyone has a better method, please holler... this is what I'm having to do, for now. Previously I could even work it out.

Keepvid.com shows a load of options, which include mp4 and WEBM. A large amount of them are video only, or audio only, which are no use for anything, because the format that comes off keepvid is crook.

The first big problem was identifying an encoder that wouldn't crash on the 1080p videoplayback.mp4 files that download. Amazingly, Handbrake seems to be OK. I did set it to the frame rate that VLC showed in the codec info section.

My first attempt was to use MKVmerge, to just slip the video from the 1080p file and the audio from the audio file. That would be too simple! The framerate of the video file is 1fps, and MKVmerge says there are no tracks in it. BAH!!

Currently, I've managed to do it, by downloading the 1080p video only, and a 720p MP4 video with audio. Then I use MKVmerge to slip the 720p audio into the re-encoded video file.

We really need something like MKVmerge that can work on video only and audio only files.

Thanks for that. It appears like the modern youtube downloaders are capable of remuxing the video and audio back together.

4k says it does that as well

Keepvid obviously can't be bovvered.

Not sure I'm willing to install JD, with its billion plugins. I installed it on a server once, and the server got malwared to death.

Oh, no. I just noticed that keepvid has a video joiner. It's been in my face the whole time.

I use Freemake Video Downloader, just be careful with the setup to do not install the unwanted software.

If you use Chrome or Firefox you can get a browser plug in that will show the links on the Youtube page.

I use http://www.downloadyoutubechrome.com/

IDM (Internet Download Manager) works perfectly. Downloaded files are generic AVC/AAC in MP4 container. No need to recode anything unless you choose to do so in order to filter out blocking or noise.
When Youtube changes/breaks download capability, IDM comes out with a fix usually within 48 hours.
Even downloads 4K HD clips when available.

I'm liking Youtube Downloader, tonight. Thanks Bootbabe. I don't know if I successfully dodged all the malware. Currently it lets me download multiple Youtubes. Not sure if it's only in the first 30 days.
