    90% of audio material on Youtube is in 96 kbps not even 128
    Just check anything you download from youtube with "FakinTheFunk"
    Sometimes you can find very good audio on youtube for example once I found Solomun's Untold mix in 48 kHZ 320 aac quality I couldn't believe but it was really that good quality.
    I'm using this it works almost all the time

    I used fankinthefunk. Very nice site. But recently I would like to check something and didn't work. Site is dead.
    Do You know other site like this?
    There is program called Spek but not told you what bitrate really is. You must check yourself by watching where it cuts and must know every single cut to tell which bitrate is this. Without this knowledge is hard to tell exact bitrate. Little uncomfortable. FankintheFunk was automatic.


    Like this:

    + 56 kbps, 48 kbps, 32 kbps, 24 kbps. Etc, etc. You must know every single cut to know what the exact bitrate is in Spek :/

    You might or might not find 4K Video Downloader useful. It's free and will offer you a list of quality options after you input the URL of the YT file you want.

    Downloading from YouTube has been strange for me a lot of times, sometimes it just can't download an individual video no matter what website or tool I try while all other videos can be downloaded, sometimes the quality will be worse than the original when it is OK with other videos, etc..

    Check out ClipGrab, it's a freeware tool, it has often allowed me to get a video when other downloaders failed.

    It's simple

    since the beginning of the pandemic Youtube gives you only the smallest format by default

    .webm is with the same bitrate smaller and better to read

    I used Youtube DLG and the webm format for downloading and get the more clear result after 3 tries (the mp4 and mkv file are the garbage quality in this case)

    Netflix and YouTube are slowing down in Europe to keep the internet from breaking :

    Sorry, but youtube-dl says these formats are available, and when youtube-dl says that then that's the truth.

    Console output:

    youtube-dl -F [youtube link]
    [youtube] -U_sL_gAaXA: Downloading webpage
    [info] Available formats for -U_sL_gAaXA:
    format code extension resolution note
    249 webm audio only tiny 68k , opus @ 50k (48000Hz), 847.11KiB
    250 webm audio only tiny 87k , opus @ 70k (48000Hz), 1.06MiB
    140 m4a audio only tiny 127k , m4a_dash container, [email protected] (44100Hz), 2.11MiB
    251 webm audio only tiny 154k , opus @160k (48000Hz), 2.04MiB
    278 webm 238x144 144p 57k , webm container, vp9, 30fps, video only, 705.08KiB
    160 mp4 238x144 144p 126k , avc1.42c00c, 15fps, video only, 1.76MiB
    242 webm 398x240 240p 137k , vp9, 30fps, video only, 1.18MiB
    243 webm 596x360 360p 214k , vp9, 30fps, video only, 2.09MiB
    134 mp4 596x360 360p 276k , avc1.4d401e, 30fps, video only, 3.94MiB
    133 mp4 398x240 240p 295k , avc1.4d400d, 30fps, video only, 3.97MiB
    244 webm 794x480 480p 341k , vp9, 30fps, video only, 3.23MiB
    135 mp4 794x480 480p 589k , avc1.4d401f, 30fps, video only, 8.24MiB
    18 mp4 480x290 240p 304k , avc1.42001E, 30fps, [email protected] 96k (44100Hz), 5.06MiB (best)

    So the best you can get is: youtube-dl -f135+140 to dl a [email protected]/[email protected] MP4, or youtube-dl -f244+251 to dl a [email protected]/[email protected] webm file.

    btw. youtube-dl comes for Linux and Windows: http://ytdl-org.github.io/youtube-dl/download.html

    I downloaded this video using youtube-dl in the best quality ~8MB video + ~2MB audio but looks awful because it's problem with codecs. Hey but there is vp9 codec. Thanks for the list. I try to download vp9 :wink:

    Edit: Yes! Success!
    This is the best version:
    244 webm 794x480 480p 341k , vp9, 30fps, video only, 3.23MiB
    +
    251 webm audio only tiny 154k , opus @160k (48000Hz), 2.04MiB

    So problem was in crappy avc1 codec. VP9 codec is better. In this case much better.

    I never open availible format list before download. I always look into youtube and type in same max resolution like 480p or type in bestvideo+bestaudio so always this was little in the dark. I learn something new. Thx :wink:

    The best audio here is the "251 webm audio only tiny 154k , opus @160k (48000Hz), 2.04MiB" even if it's smaller than the mp3 (opus is a way better audio codec than mp3.) ;)
    Opus vs mp3 demo here


    Youtube-dl is an amazing tool, not only for youtube !

    Yeah it's amazing all the different crap softwares there are and that people seem to use for downloading from YouTube. A lot of them don't even download the streams, they convert them to other formats. Youtube doesn't have mp3, if some software has a mp3 option it's converting it, often at non optimal settings.

    Youtube-dl is the only thing people should be using.

    In most cases for audio, you either want format 140 (m4a ~128 kbps) or format 251 (opus ~160 kbps).

    You can download just the audio like this:

    m4a
    Code:
    youtube-dl -f 140 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-U_sL_gAaXA
    or

    opus
    Code:
    youtube-dl -f 251 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-U_sL_gAaXA
