Has anyone found a good way to download high-quality HD video from YouTube?

This seems like such an easy thing, but googling it results in a mess of semi-sketchy download sites, spy ware, god knows what. I tried a few programs/sites but no matter what they advertised, the quality was poor.
I'm uploading 1080p videos of the baby, and my dad is trying to get something close to source-file quality from his downloads in Germany so he can edit them -- but even when sites advertise "HD" it's usually highly compressed to a fraction of the original quality. There has to be a better way.... He's on Windows 7. Thanks.
