Does Opera have an EASY way to download Youtube videos?

  • I'm using a Toshiba 64-bit laptop with 8gb memory, 2T hard drive running Windows 10 Home and Opera 53.0.
    .
    I used to use Easy Youtube Video Downloader but evidently it is never going to be released to work in Opera, so I've given up on that. According to the developer, it's been waiting for approval for six months or more. There is only so much patience.

    Is there a way to download Youtube videos using Opera? Not using Chrome (nightmarish results when I tried that one) or any other browser. Preferably an easy way to download the videos. I don't want an option where I have to go here, do this, then go here, do this, then go back here and change this. I want something user friendly, like Easy Youtube Video Downloader was back when it was working.

    Is there another Add-in or Extension or something else that works with Opera?
    Thanks for your help.

  • There are extensions and userscripts to do that, but, sometimes Browser's speed is lower than Accelerators Downloaders.

    You may like to look at them also:
    jDownloader, Orbit, Eagle, Ninja...

    They would work from the clipboard (URL copy) or with an extension.

    For UserScripts:

    You will need TamperMonkey ext. or similar to make them work.

  • Well.. You could find one of those old DL extensions (code) and make it yours.

    Using an online service comes with guaranteed tracking and logging. But if that's what u choose to do then for example https://y2mate.com/ u can make that paste url line a search engine <- and then use it through context menu.

    Developer tool of the browser let's u DL videos from MOST of sites. Follow these easy steps for achievement with Dev tools:

    That's what I used to use for yt and fb. But, now they use blobs. Some other sites use XHR to fetch ranges done via playlist files. Sometimes you can modify the range to get all of the file with one URL, but sometimes you can't. There are often tokens that expire pretty fast too where the URLs you're messing with start failing if you don't hurry up and do your modifications.

    When youtube first started serving the video and audio streams separately, there were quite a few extensions that would let you just fetch the raw aac file where you could then use mp4box to wrap it in an mp4 container (with m4a extension) and add tags. That way, there was no lossy conversion again. Haven't seen anything like that in a while though.
