I almost always download the video from YouTube anyway because streaming just sucks.  Unfortunately YouTube blocks downloads above 720p unless I take special steps.  So if I cannot download the video or it is not 720p or better, I am not interested.  My preference would be downloading via bittorrent which is better than using a browser anyway but nobody supports that except piracy sites.

I use youtube-dl and it always downloads the highest quality available. (I do that largely so I can use mpv to upscale everything to 4K.) Maybe your version is out of date?

I have 4K Download as an application which works but I usually use a Firefox plug-in for convenience and they all seem to be limited to 720p.  I only pointed this out as a reason not to use an alternative video host where I cannot download the videos at all.  I would prefer just a download link.  I hate streaming and hate watching a video within a browser.

Probably not.
I've given up the ghost on things that went off platform, whether from facebook, YT, Paltalk ....
I download Eevblog on iTunesU (but still watch exclusively on Youtube)

I'll watch the video on whatever platform Dave links to from his eevblog.com page. That's my favourite entry point, I rarely use YT directly.
