Subject description: downloading you tube videos with command lines & GUI tool
 

There is a GUI for youtube-dl, but using this script is very easy.

Open the folder in which you want to download videos, and open a terminal. Then type :
youtube-dl + url

On a you tube video page, under the screen, there is an option to share. Click it, and copy-paste the url in your terminal, such as https://youtu.be/Rz0hEYaDZx8

It looks like this :

youtube-dl https://youtu.be/Rz0hEYaDZx8

Click enter, and download proceeds.

You can add options, such as :
youtube-dl --list-formats https://youtu.be/Rz0hEYaDZx8

This option gives you some codes, which you use to download mp4, webm, or other formats, usually -f 43 for webm and -f 18 for mp4

Here i will download the video in mp4 format :

youtube-dl -f18 https://youtu.be/Rz0hEYaDZx8

Need the title in your download, here how to have titles :
youtube-dl -t -f18 https://youtu.be/Rz0hEYaDZx8

The downloading can resume, in case downloading is interrupted. Just type same command as above.

For installing youtube-dl, it is as easy as $sudo apt install youtube-dl for Dog-based OS.

more info on dependencies (python version 2.6, 2.7, or 3.2+) and installing methods :
https://rg3.github.io/youtube-dl/download.html

With curl :
sudo curl -L https://yt-dl.org/downloads/latest/youtube-dl -o /usr/local/bin/youtube-dl
sudo chmod a+rx /usr/local/bin/youtube-dl

With wget :
sudo wget https://yt-dl.org/downloads/latest/youtube-dl -O /usr/local/bin/youtube-dl
sudo chmod a+rx /usr/local/bin/youtube-dl

Finally, youtube-dl can be used for other video websites.

Which sites? Not sure if I agree with that.

How can I use the GUI? I downloaded using

""With wget :
sudo wget https://yt-dl.org/downloads/latest/youtube-dl -O /usr/local/bin/youtube-dl
sudo chmod a+rx /usr/local/bin/youtube-dl ""

But I don't know what to do next? I am on x-tahr.

Also, how to download 720p version?

Subject description: installing from source and from .deb
 

https://mrs0m30n3.github.io/youtube-dl-gui/#downloads

For Dog-based users :
Installing from source :
First, you need to have build-essential installed.
Then, after downloading source and having extracted it, open a terminal window from extracted folder :

python setup.py install (or $sudo python setup.py install for non-root users)

Once installation is complete :
youtube-dl-gui in terminal

The easy way :
.deb file from Precise to Zesty download center :
http://ppa.launchpad.net/nilarimogard/webupd8/ubuntu/pool/main/y/youtube-dlg/
