I have 1754 subscribers and nearly 6 million views of my 141 videos. NONE of the videos were uploaded in "high quality".

What's with the ellipses? Are you taking a bite of food and chewing between words? Makes it a LOT harder to parse.

Can someone please tell me how to use youtube-dl to download from youtube. Maybe a link where I can read more information ?
Firefox has the most plugins for downloading from Youtube:
3. Youtube Video and Audio Downloader
All of those can download video and audio or just audio.
Some download managers can be used, too. Internet download manager, for example.
Google Chrome doesn't really have much options/plugins as Google actually forbids downloading videos from Youtube. Opera is in the same problem as it is based on Blink, like Chrome.
