  1. i have a YouTube video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qj5Be-tjNgs
    this video is in VP9 but I want to download it without the vp9.
    I need only 1080p in x264
    is that possible ?
    everything I tried downloads it with VP9

  3. The problem is "ext!=webm" may give you AV1 codec (in mp4 container), not necessarily H.264.

    Try:
    Code:
    youtube-dl -f "bestvideo[vcodec^=avc1][height<=1080]+bestaudio[acodec^=mp4a]/best[vcodec^=avc1][height<=1080]" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qj5Be-tjNgs

  5. Since it is only a 1.04 GB file I downloaded it for you in highest AVC Video and AAC Audio and muxed the audio and video to a single mkv file which should play everywhere.

    Hope you're happy with it

    You can then download the streams you want. For example:

    Code:
    youtube-dl -f 137+140 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qj5Be-tjNgs
    will get you streams 137 (1080p AVC video) and 140 (aac audio) in an mp4 container.

    I know nothing about Macs but I have just read elsewhere that one can use Homebrew to install youtube-dl on a Mac OS.
    H.T.H.
