SVPtube is a tiny free app to extract direct URLs to live streams from YouTube and Vimeo and send it to your preferred video player that can play this stream as normal video with SVP and/or any post processing enabled. Just copy YouTube or Vimeo link to clipboard - and that's all!

Tested with MPC-HC and Daum PotPlayer.

Notes

YouTube and 1080p

Most of MP4 streams on YouTube are now splitted into two streams - one for video and one for audio. This is called DASH and those video formats are marked with (*) mark in SVPtube. As of November 2013 all "old" (video plus audio) formats below 1080p are still available but formats greater or equal to 1080p available in a new (splitted) mode only.

The only option to watch 1080p and (4K) now is to use video player that can load two live streams at the same time. And the right players are MPC-HC >= 1.7 and MPC-BE >= 1.3. If you know other video players that can do this - let us know.

So "1080p MP4" option is available in SVPtube ONLY when it's set to load videos in either MPC-HC or MPC-BE. It may (or may not) be changed in future versions.

Video downloading

Since SVPtube 1.2.0 it's possible to choose external WSH (Windows Scripting Host) script file as the "Video player".

One sample script is bundled with SVPtube, it's called svptube-dl.wsf and it allows to mux video, audio and subtitles tracks into one MP4 file on-the-fly by calling ffmpeg.exe.

What you'll need:

After that you'll be asked whether you want to play or to download the video. Some parameters can be tuned in the script itself with a text editor.
