Downloading videos from youtube – Ubuntu


Today I come across a fantastic command in Ubuntu called youtube-dl. This command is used to download videos from youtube. It has some great features like extracting sounds from the video in Ubuntu, set the audio format during extraction, resume partially downloaded files, Set the video timings for downloading etc….

Installation: $sudo apt-get install youtube-dl

Example: – After the installation you need to update the youtube-dl command to the latest version

$ sudo youtube-dl  -U

Then you can download the required video by

$ sudo youtube-dl  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TPyAMaM90ko

For more help do $man youtube-dl
