    Sites take a ton of measures to prevent people who barely know what they’re doing from going into inspect element and grabbing the video link, you can try youtube-dl or Tartube (more user friendly interface for youtube-dl), but if that doesn’t work you’re probably out of luck.

  • Downline - GUI for youtube-dl
    e.g. - The top Google result, namely MrS0m30n3/youtube-dl-gui seems to be unmaintained - Tartube looks really powerful, but it's not quite what I'd have in mind when thinking about a really nice looking GUI. I do understand that that's more of a fault of the underlying tech, aka Gtk 3 - jely2002/youtube-dl-gui looks really nice, I'll probably check it out. Source: almost 3 years ago
