download the firefox addon "Downloadhelper". Then go to the actual youtube page (not an embedded one from a forum or facebook) and then when you click on that tab on your browser it'll have the options for various qualities, including the highest quality they uploaded, whether it's 720 or 1080.
This is the best addon EVER. I've been using that for god knows how long and been ripping high quality videos since. It also works on a good portion of the most popular websites as well
Are you all that dumb, or did you just not read past the first sentence?
They are charging in exchange to not have to watch advertisements. This is very legit, and they won't lose a single customer over it. Why? Because everyone is already watching the ads, and people like me that don't give a fu(k about $2 a month will gladly pay that to not have to wait through those stupid ads before getting to the video you want to watch. Think about how many ads you watch per month before a youtube video starts, and then consider if $2 if worth getting back that time.
I forgot they even had advertisements. I haven't seen a single ad in years due to adblock addons for firefox and chrome.
