Josh's Media Downloader

Minimal interface for downloading content from many popular media sites.


This tool utilizes custom handlers for specific formats, providing the highest visual quality. Most other downloaders will fetch the best format that includes both video and audio. However, this will sometimes create an instance where the best format that includes both video and audio is at a lower visual quality than the original video.

For example, most YouTube videos that are 1080p and up do not provide a format that includes both video and audio, and are instead separated into split video and audio tracks.

To ensure the highest quality, this tool downloads both the highest quality video track and the highest quality audio track, and them combines them into the desired format on the backend. Most downloaders purposefully grab the best available format with video and audio just to make the download faster and smaller, but you miss out on quality that can be hard to obtain.
