Is there an easy way to download all YouTube vids in a series? For example, to easily select 10 (or more) vids in a series (a game walkthrough for example) and leave the rest to the downloader to grab the vids in the highest quality available?

One way to do it is jdownloader, which has a youtube parser
You enter a list of youtube URLs, (e.g. copy & paste from a text file list) and it will scan each for every version of the video and list them
You can just CTRL select the versions you want (e.g. 1080p verison) and add them to the queue. It supports multiple concurrent connections per file and multiple downloads, so be careful how you setup the download limits or you will thrash your HDD and max out your connection very quickly
Some benefits: you don't actually have to start downloading the video to parse (some other programs do), so you don't waste any bandwidth
Negative: large footprint (high RAM usage compared to other programs), runs on java
Thank you kindly, I'll look into that.
dvdvideosoft's "free youtube downloader" will do that and also allow you to name them by sequential number or even upload date. You can also list an entire user's channel and pick and choose what you want. It also will show you possible download formats and let you pick what you prefer that you can then have for all videos or just one. When i use it I have it saved as "leave original youtube format". This way it will not encode it to anything, rather let me pick from which format youtube has the video up in.
Sounds good too - however, just downloaded it and ESET NOD32 flags up a virus warning.
Donatello - The Shredder? Michelangelo - Maybe all that hardware is for making coleslaw?
yeah sounds like he either got it from somewhere else or his anti virus is giving a false positive. Before I found that software I would see a slew of them with a similar title (and 98% of them were spy.maleware crap). It was not until I saw a youtbue video talking about the dvdvideosoft version (about 2 years ago) that I went with and tried that version. I still stick with it because it is the only one that does what it is suppose to do with no issues or other crap.
Compvid, not sure where you got it from, but if you get the program from the link I gave you it is fine. If that is where you got it from your antivirus is giving you a false positive
Thanks - must be a false positive then as i got it from the page that you linked to.
