You can play the video at high quality and then use a screen recorder software to record it. OBS is good and free.

what do you mean by private?

If the owner of the video has made it private, you cannot do anything about it. It’s pointless to do anything at that point.

But if it is important then read this article about it → How To Watch Private Videos On Youtube
