The largest file size usually has the best quality, avoid .3gp videos.
I cannot tell which has the largest file size until I started or completed the download. Which of these would you suggest I should try?
[360p] in flv
[medium] in mp4
[HQ5] in flv
[HQ134] in mp4
[HQ133] in mp4
[HQ160] in mp4
[HQ139] in mp4
[HQ141] in mp4
Not a pro at video quality but [HQ160] in mp4 seems the best.
Not sure of the quality. I downloaded a video today. HQ141 was 8.5MB and 720p was 44MB and 360p was 21MB
I tried a shorter Youtube with similar video streams available.
This is the file size I got downloaded:
[480p] in flv = 544MB
[Medium] in mp4 = 310MB
[HQ5] in flv = 166MB
I watch the video files and cannot really see the difference of these video file. Can you please tell me how to compare the video qualit? I am kind of confuse.
HIGHEST QUALITY TO SMALL
eg for a file
(changes depending on the size of each video that you dowload)
Only the size by file not the order
De la meilleure à la qualité la plus faible
exemple pour un fichier
(la taille change en fonction de chaque vidéo que vous téléchargez)
Uniquement la taille du fichier pas l'ordre du classement
If exist / si cela existe : 10080 & 720 HD
1080.flv or 1080.mp4___ xxx xxxko
720.flv or 720.mp4___xxx xxxko

1. Go to DownloadHelper Preferences>Capture>YouTube>Display HQ Prefix. 2. Select [HQx np WxH] or any other option containing WxH. 3. Close Preferences. 4. Refresh your Youtube Page.
Now you will be able to see the video resolutions also when you click on the DownloadHelper arrow in toolbar. Select desired resolution.
P.S. DownloadHelper works best with DownThemAll.
