Its developers have concentrated all their efforts on offering us a fast and reliable product, leaving aside frills such as a graphical interface that is pleasing to the user.

How to download YouTube videos with this program?

- Download youtube-dl.exe to your computer.
- Open the command line using the command prompt.
- Try to navigate to the path where you have saved the executable.
- Just type youtube-dl [ruta del vídeo en YouTube] and hit Enter.
In a few seconds the video will be downloaded to the same folder where we have left the .exe and we also have the possibility to add hundreds of parameters to the command that will affect its format and quality.
