This Videos are hosted from Youtube but when I try to watch them on Youtube they are not available in Youtube.


Currently I am downloading files by individually clicking on them and when the IDM download video button appears on the Video I just click it to download but the problem is initially the video quality is only 480p but I need to download in 720p.

  • Search Google for youtube-dl. – MariusMatutiae Mar 1 '16 at 8:05
  • @MariusMatutiae: Interesting downloader but it isn't clear how that solves the problem of downloading the 720p version. – fixer1234 Mar 16 '16 at 4:10

Seems to me like they are viewable on YouTube as well.

As an example, here is the video from your link, but on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GkMKGN5DNlw&feature=youtu.be


Depending on your location, it might be that the video is not available in your country, but you can work around that by using a proxy.


There are many tools for downloading videos from YouTube. As an example, here are some plugins for Chrome that you can use.

Same strategy for finding tools if you're using another browser.

  • Thnx... But is there a way where I can just copy the link of the youtube video from the buttons and automatically download them from the link? – Rony Shawkat Mar 1 '16 at 8:54
  • @RonyShawkat you can rightclick on the video and choose "copy video URL" – Burgi Mar 1 '16 at 11:47
  • Yes I can do that but there are hundreds of videos I want to download from that site and it will be a very tiresome job to go through all the links manually and right clicking them for the link. I wanted an automated or semi automated system... :( – Rony Shawkat Mar 2 '16 at 4:04
  • You question does not reflect that. – Burgi Mar 15 '16 at 8:56
