Downloading video from YouTube

  DominicMarkovsky 20:28 13 Mar 2015

Bad health took me away from my computer for a year or so. Now, I forget how I used to download videos from YouTube but I certainly used to. Now, I can find several utilities that claim to do it but (q) they don't after all honor their claims; and (b) that was not how I used to do it anyway. I used to choose something from the Safari menu bar and the video would just arrive that way. What am I doing wrong now? AKA "how do I download a video from YouTube"?

Actually, I think I used to choose Window/Activity then choose the largest of the items in the displayed list but, when I tried that today, there was no megabyte-sized item in the displayed list and I'm pretty sure that is how I used to do it. Has something fundamentally changed?
