This is a GUI version of youtube-dl found. Get it here Downloader
I have used several packages, such as WindowsApiCodePack, Costura.Fordy etc, which NuGet should take care of automatically when building(See here). So clone the repo, and you're good to go.
Copy Youtube/vimeo/dailymotion/any-other-supported-site video url to clipboard
Open YouTube Downloader.exe
Select the necessary options
This software is the result of my realization that most people (including me) are just too lazy to use the command-line tool 'youtube-dl'. So I decided to build a GUI for it with only the most bare-bone features (youtube-dl has a ton of features which are not available in my version - maybe they will soon be available :p).
You can download videos from other video sharing sites as well. A huge set of sites are supported. To see the full list of supported sites go here. The advanced options like quality etc. are only applicable to youtube at the moment; soon they will apply to other sites as well.
