    A Simple command-line batch file i made to download internet video from many sites.
    It use the excellent youtube-dl command line utility.

    how to use:
    1 - Download youtube-dl and the latest version of ffmpeg
    2 - Create a folder, put these downloaded files in this folder
    3 - Create this .bat file with a text editor
    4 - In the .bat file, edit the download path for your preference, and save it in the same folder
    5 - Create a Windows shortcut to the batch file
    6 - Bdl-click the shortcut... paste the video url , select option ... that's it!

    this is the .bat file:

    @ECHO OFF

    SET DnBest=--hls-prefer-native --add-metadata -f best
    SET DnBestAudVid=--hls-prefer-native --add-metadata
    SET DnBestUnmerge=--hls-prefer-native --add-metadata -f "bestvideo,bestaudio"
    SET DnBestMP4_MPA=--hls-prefer-native --add-metadata -f "bestvideo[ext=mp4]+bestaudio[ext=m4a]/best[ext=mp4]/best"
    SET DnBestMP4_AAC=--hls-prefer-native --add-metadata -f "bestvideo[ext=mp4]+bestaudio[ext=aac]/best[ext=mp4]/best"
    SET DnMP3=--write-all-thumbnails --hls-prefer-native --add-metadata --embed-thumbnail -f bestaudio/best -x --audio-quality 1 --audio-format mp3
    SET DnAAC=--write-all-thumbnails --hls-prefer-native --add-metadata --embed-thumbnail -f bestaudio/best -x --audio-quality 1 --audio-format aac

    Thanks.

    I use these
    REM download the BEST regardless of file extension
    "%youtube_dl_exe%" --no-call-home --console-title --verbose --ignore-config --prefer-ffmpeg --ffmpeg-location "%ffmpeg_location%" --buffer-size 64k --no-mtime --console-title --force-ipv4 --no-mark-watched --ignore-errors --restrict-filenames --format "bestvideo+bestaudio" %theURL%

    "%youtube_dl_exe%" --no-call-home --console-title --verbose --ignore-config --prefer-ffmpeg --ffmpeg-location "%ffmpeg_location%" --buffer-size 64k --no-mtime --console-title --force-ipv4 --no-mark-watched --ignore-errors --restrict-filenames --format "best" %theURL%
    So I must look up what your flags do !
    Code:
    --hls-prefer-native 
    --add-metadata
    --write-all-thumbnails
    --embed-thumbnail
    edit: it's at https://github.com/ytdl-org/youtube-dl#options
