    I use a simple trick that is the dl trick. First go to youtube (or vimeo and etc) and search for the video you wish to download. Add the letters DL to the URL of the video (place to add the letters is before the name of the site, so dlyoutube, dlvimeo and etc.)
    Press enter and you will automatically get directed to the downloader's site.
    Choose the quality of video you wish. And that's it =)
