Youtube-DL is the most amazing, most versatile youtube downloader

about youtube-dl · ·

i love youtube-dl, it's very simple, very fast, intuitive, and gets the job done on many fronts, not just audio and video downloading, but muxing it together and picking the highest quality and it's free. and it's public domain, means there are people always ready to update the software, if youtube or other sites change the way they serve streams. Youtube-DL for the king!!!


Simple and works well

One simple command line program that does it all.

Whether it's downloading a Youtube video, extracting audio from Youtube videos or download a whole playlist, this does it all and it's intelligent enough to recognize video URLs.
