Oh I can do it, and I know how to do so technically. I'm just pointing out by the letter of YouTube's TOS it's not permitted. :)

Thanks for the extensive explanation, and as someone who's helped with
Wikimania video in the past, I absolutely feel your pain and commend you
for doing what you have so far.

Downloading from YouTube violates their TOS, though you'll notice people
do it all the time.

I've uploaded thousands of YouTube videos to archive.org, I can do these too with no problem.
