The project is no longer developed. Last version, 0.4, released in July 2017, can be still downloaded from the official website
EDIT 2020-09-21: I decided to revisit this app and heard that this project probably isn't being maintained anymore. There is a fork, named TarTube, and I am going to check that out momentarily. https://github.com/axcore/tartube Tartube
YouTube-dl in its own right is a great application, and Youtube-DLG just makes the experience even better. For those, like myself, who are too lazy to use a command line sometimes, or for those who don't even want to be bothered with it, YouTube-DLG will allow you to reap all the benefits of YouTube-dl in a noob-friendly way.
My only complaint is that sometimes videos just inexplicably fail to download, though whether this is a YouTube-dl, YouTube-DLG, or just YouTube issue is unknown.

Amazing! A easy to use application. No more malicious popup ads from quote on quote "Microsoft" that says "we will lock up you computer due to bad virus. call now before we lock up you computer." from that sketchy Youtube downloader site. All that it is is a simple GUI where you feed it the Youtube link, click Download and you're ready to go!
that's great and awesome. i'm satisfied with it.
useful and novel idea with various experts in each topics that i want
A great GUI for even greater command-line utility youtube-dl which it's using internally to do the actual work. A safe alternative to all those x-downloader websites which are often dangerous and a fraud. Also, it allows much greater control over the downloaded media than downloading websites, it can download videos in various formats, resolutions and it can even download subtitles.
Relatively fast; it can download limitless playlists without the annoying limit by X videos, and one of the best things is that you can use the mp3 —if you convert the videos to that format—while it is still downloading the rest of the playlist. Maybe some kind of choosing what videos inside the playlist in order to not repeat the whole process again would be great.
I even could have downloaded playlists from SoundCloud.

Only a 30ss clip; so useless for SoundCloud.
Just works, and I don't have to deal with the hoards of scummy download sites that for some reason INSIST on using their money to pay for cloud services instead of just letting you download things yourself. Also don't have to deal with scummy Firefox addons that are suspiciously identical and lie about things to try to get you to pay them for anything better than 360p.
In short, thank you.
