First of all, remember to enable Unknown Sources from your device’s Security settings, to allow installations of non market Apps (safely ignore the subsequent dialog). Please note: in newer versions of Android, this kind of permission is not system-wide, but has to be given to single apps;
If the “install” button is not working, temporary disable apps as Halo, Screenfilter, Twilight, password manager or anything similar (apps that do “draw on other apps”);
To install the app, click on your notification bar message for the completed download (if using the system downloads app, otherwise this may vary: i.e. if you have a file manager installed, you can browse to your downloads folder and install YTD’s apk directly, clicking on the file).
Search for video and music within the app itself, OR
Select the “share” button in the YouTube App while watching a video (or share any YouTube plain text link via any App) and choose “YouTube ”;
You’ll see all the video codecs and qualities available for the video you’re on - then:
Press an item to download the video locally (on the device) or to send the download via SSH to a remote PC. Destination machine requirements: Bash and (for on remote side). Other SSH info available in the app;
Long-press an item and choose between copy to clipboard or share link as text. Note: such a link (differently from when you send it via SSH) can be only used from the same device where it has been created OR from the same LAN, if you share it to another PC;
Use the Dashboard to interact with downloaded video (audio extraction/conversion/mux and file management);
On or above, you can copy/move/rename/delete files on external .
Download of YouTube videos (support for remote download to another PC via SSH);
Multi-threaded downloads: maximizes bandwidth available and minimizes YouTube’s speed throttling;
Support for any format/quality available from YouTube;
Audio extraction/conversion to via item menu in the Dashboard;
Mux Audio- and Video-only streams into a complete video (to enjoy HD resolutions available as separated streams only);
File management options via long-click on an item in the Dashboard;
Handle download link: copy and/or pass it to other apps;
Video list filters by format, quality via (left) sliding menu;
