Forum recently I ran across this package. -- runs in the terminal.

very nice and simple if you would like to download  stuff from youtube,
Particularly music tracks if that interest you.. ;)

It has been around for awhile, I wonder if you guys have ever used it before.

There's a GUI (Graphical User Interface) front end for that .. youtube-dlg

For Peppermint 9
https://launchpad.net/~nilarimogard/+archive/ubuntu/webupd8/+files/youtube-dlg_0.4-1~webupd8~bionic9_all.deb
download that file and double-click to install

For Peppermint 7/8
you'll need to download 2 filess and install them in this order
https://launchpad.net/~nilarimogard/+archive/ubuntu/webupd8/+files/python-twodict_1.2-1~webupd8~xenial0_all.deb
then
https://launchpad.net/~nilarimogard/+archive/ubuntu/webupd8/+files/youtube-dlg_0.4-1~webupd8~xenial4_all.deb
download that file and double-click to install

In either case you'll then find it in the main menu under

Menu > Internet > YouTube DL GUI

Yes, I've "downloaded" a few videos and even a few full lenght gigs using it :)
Only used it from the command line, though.

An alternative, which I haven't tried is avideo. Supposably, more secure.

I've used ClipGrab as well and had alot of luck.  Gui interface and can convert to all sorts of formats.
