I find using DAP (Download Accelerator Plus) the best way to download YouTube clips and skip this way the adverts.
Just select the clip URL and from the top menu
Downloads > Add new download
The popup window will have the URL selected already. Click OK

I use Free Download Manager and this also has the facility to download from YouTube. Similar method copying the YouTube URL.

EDIT - But see below.

I use savefromdotnet The fastest free YouTube Downloader

2 ways to use it, I have it installed in Firefox, when on a video on YouTube or similar I get a little download button pop up.

Or you can pop the url into the save from website.

I take back what I said about FDM. It just simply doesn't work on YouTube. All I get is a small file called Watch. Useless.

After searching around for a solution applicable to FDM I gave up when I stumbled upon a program called 4K Video Downloader. It's installed on your computer (Windows - don't know about other OSes) and so far has functioned flawlessly,

4K downloader is a very good program, have been using it for a couple of years with no problems, they are always fast to catch any youtube code changes.
But more convenient for me is Internet Download Manager (not free), since it has an icon appearing on the top of almost any streaming video for download.
Also, DownloadHelper addon in Firefox has now support for HLS streams, works quite well too, but not in all cases.

I need a program that can download non-YouTube videos that are streamed on non GEO restricted websites.
The video clips are powered by JW Player 7.12.6
DAP can't handle it.
Any suggestions please?

Give me a URL and I'll see if 4K Video Downloader works. PM me if it's sensitive.

4K Video Downloader doesn't help.
I followed the instructions in the video clip and I get video segments in mp2t format. Not really what I want.

Thanks for trying. I know it is a hard one to crack.
What did you use to get 5 minutes? Are they adverts or from the actual clip?

Five minutes? Actually 45 seconds!

A few screenshots:

Thanks. The screenshots are for other TV series.
BTW, the actress in the TV series that I am interested in, won Miss Turkey back in 2008. She is really beautiful.
Here is a video clip for an interview with her co-star about the series. You can hide the Chinese subtitles (CC) if you want or select English
