SMPlayer has got a GUI tool (smtube) to enable YouTube downloading.

  • Format saved - MPEG4, playable by any half-decent player, including VLC. Also FLV and WEBM.

  • Video and audio - YES.

  • Freeware - YES.

  • Adult video triggers - NOT TESTED.

  • Batch downloading - NO. The workflow centers on searching for videos in the YouTube Browser and then downloading them. The Youtube browser "allows you to browse among the most popular, most viewed and most rated videos. You can search for a video typing a term in the search field at the bottom of the window. To play a video, just double click on it". The program can be launched with one parameter: smtube "A very funny video" to display the result lists.

  • Save all URL links - NO.

  • Download video sets defined by Youtube - NO.

  • Ability to remember download history - NO.

  • Skip advertisements - WHAT ADS? Have not seen any using this tool.

  • Windows - Yes. (Linux also supported).

  • Standalone software - YES.

This tool does its work for me just fine.

EDIT: As of May 12, 2015, SMTube needs some fixing to download videos (depending on OS and available external file download managers like wget). For more details, have a look at How to download videos with the new SMTube (an archive link just in case).
