This is the only tool that I know of that can download *all* YouTube streams in their original form.
Other tools (including tools that are **not** free):
1. Only download three pre-muxed and low quality encoded files (flv 240, mp4 360, and mp4 720), and
2. **Re-encode** those files to make "fake" 1080p files and/or 480p files.
Complete YouTube Saver can download the *actual* 1080p and other high quality video DASH streams, *and* high bitrate audio streams, then **only** uses ffmpeg to mux the stream content to a MP4 file format (there's NO re-encoding, it's the same encode that plays direct from YouTube. You have the option of downloading the higher quality DASH streams for 1080p, 720p, 360p, 240p, etc., as well as *only* high bitrate audio streams... a lot of people don't realize that many YouTube videos actually have 256K CBR and/or 192K VBR streams available, and Complete YouTube Saver can download these in their native M4A encoding!)
While YouTube is not encrypted for the most part, the actual download links for the streams are, which Complete YouTube Saver is able to decrypt from your browser's ability to play the links. YouTube regularly changes the way this works, and it usually stops Complete YouTube Saver from working, so with no more updates, this final version won't last very long.
It would be an ABSOLUTE SHAME to lose this important and useful tool because 150 people (of the over 22,000 users) could not spare $2.00 per month.
Some points to keep in mind about Patreon:
1) For the Patreon "rewards" of adding your name to the donations page and/or adding your name to the "about" window, ***YOU HAVE THE OPTION TO JUST PLEDGE AND NOT HAVE YOUR NAME ADDED TO ANYTHING***, if privacy is a concern for you.
2) YOU CAN EDIT YOUR PLEDGE ***AFTER*** PLEDGING!!
Please don't let this add-on die!
Users who wish to be anonymous on Patreon can create a user name different from their real name, or simply make their account private.
Thanks so much for the great review and support!!
