    youtube-dl -f best+best https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ro95_6S8gvU
    pause
    :end

    How can I get the highest quality video?
    Use the -F switch to get a list of available streams:


    Code:
    youtube-dl -F https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ro95_6S8gvU

    Decide which streams you want. 137 is the best video, 140 or 251 the best audio. Then use the -f switch to specify those streams:

    Code:
    youtube-dl -f 137+140 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ro95_6S8gvU
    Or you can simply specify bestvideo+bestaudio and youtube-dl will pick for you:

    Code:
    youtube-dl -f bestvideo+bestaudio https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ro95_6S8gvU
    youtube picked 137 and 251.
    Thank you! This is very helpful!
    I chose youtube-dl -f 137+140 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ro95_6S8gvU to get the best quality and it works!

    Hi there,

    I used this code and it gives me a 1280x720 mkv file without the audio.
    youtube-dl https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1pFUY_yfaS8
    pause
    :end

    So I used the following code and I still get the same result without audio.

    youtube-dl bestvideo+bestaudio https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1pFUY_yfaS8
    pause
    :end

    So I went to check he available streams by using this code but the screen popped up for an instance and disappeared! How can I stop the screen from disappearing?
    youtube-dl -F https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1pFUY_yfaS8
    pause
    :end

  4. As was previously stated, use the "-F" switch to get the formats. (Open a CMD prompt initially.)

    youtube-dl -f 136+140 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1pFUY_yfaS8

    Downloaded no problem.

    Yeah but the formats displayed only for an a second and that vanished. How do I make the format display stay for as long as I want?

  6. Again, as stated before: (Open a CMD prompt initially.) Open a 'Command Prompt/PowerShell' first.

    Example:

    If you're doing from a batch file add "pause" on the next line. The CMD window will remain open until you press a key.

    Code:
    youtube-dl url
    pause
