Download an uncompressed Youtube video from Google servers

How Can I, if I can, download some video that is in Youtube, but without Youtube extreme compression and/or less color subsampling?

You ask the person who uploaded it for the original. That's about it.

I will might have to do this! The Youtube video quality sucks, honestly, even in original 1080p videos.

How do you know they keep the original source on their servers? And why should they make it available for download?

Youtube doesn't offer any "official" way to download clips at all. Tools that let you to "download" clips from Youtube just request a stream like the Youtube player would do - and then they dump the data.

As far as I remember, you can't even download your own clips from your Youtube profile. Let alone other people's clips...

They do store originals and the only way to get them is by using Google Takeout.
