Many of you may know this, but i found it useful so sharing with you all. ( I found it on reddit)
With this,
1. You can download YouTube Video without any 3rd party app ( you need VLC player though)
2. You can watch videos without advertisements.
And of course you can use all VLC features.

To watch video just Select the URL in the address bar, drag Youtube link into VLC.

Steps to save the video locally:
  • Select the URL in the address bar, drag Youtube link into VLC.
  • In the VLC manu go to tools > codec information.
  • copy the URL link in the "location" box at the bottom.
  • Paste the URL into browser.
  • Right click and select save video as...
