Youtube-dl - Download 1080

I’m trying to find how to only download the 1080p version of a video using youtube-dl.

Does anyone know a way that works?

I’ve found lots of out of date references to older Youtube syntax.

I think I’ve resolved this by looking up the content in Chrome and with my content settings set to AV.

Try this:

youtube-dl -f 'bestvideo[height=1080]+bestaudio'

This is also very easy if you use Downie:
