THe webextensions are limited which means you need additional workarounds to get youtube-dl working. If that's too complicated or "annoying" to you, you can use the youtube-dl-gui but there is nothing wrong with the command line or the Browser extensions, it's a little bit more "complicated" to learn but that's all.
- Install YouTube Video and Audio Downloader. There are similar tools for Chrome and Firefox avbl. but we're going to use it as example.
- Download and extract the ZIP file for Windows, then run the file
- Go back to Firefox or CHhrome and click the
yD buttonthat appeared on your Toolbar after you installed the extension, and then click on "Settings".
