I like Free Download Manager, I don't know how many years I've been using it, time has gotten a bit bleary of late, and by late I mean, I'm not sure what I mean, my time dimension is bleary.

Anyway it does the usual download duties, torrents if you want.
It does youtube, I used to use a program that took ages re encoding and left a big ugly watermark.
Copy the address of the youtubicle, skip over to FDM, hit the big + button and paste your link.
It could possibly fail for a while if Youtube makes a change it has to adapt to, not often, very rarely.
Why bother? because some stuff isn't permanently available, you have the urge to hoard, it is efficient and your drives are capacious.

If religions were TV channels atheism is turning the TV off.
“Religion is a culture of faith; science is a culture of doubt.” ― Richard P. Feynman
'It is said that your life flashes before your eyes just before you die. That is true, it's called Life.' - Terry Pratchett
Remember, your inability to grasp science is not a valid argument against it.
