Poor Man's Youtube Downloader
« on: April 26, 2015, 07:16:47 PM »

(11 September 2016) UPDATE BEGINS:

Added support to download videos in 4K and 1080P resolutions.
You can now download entire playlists in 4K -1080P resolutions.
Improved audio only download function. Audio only downloads are much faster now.
Suppressed scary & pointless youtube-dl warnings.

The script has become a bit too big to paste here directly so I'm linking the GitHub repo of pmytd here,
pmytd on GitHub
Please check-out the GitHub repo and update pmytd.

Cheers!!!

(09 August 2015) UPDATE ENDS:





(07 August 2015) UPDATE BEGINS:
Another update to 'Poor Man's Youtube Downloader'
So what's new?
'Check for updates' option is vastly improved. It now comapres the installed version of youtube-dl with available version and if an update is available gives user option to update youtube-dl.
The script will also check whether the user has the permission to update youtube-dl or not. If the user doesn't have the permission then the script will check whether the user has access to sudo or not. If the user have access to sudo then the script will use sudo to update youtube-dl else the script will use 'su'. This doesn't directly affect VSIDO but I wanted to make ''Poor Man's Youtube Downloader'' work on any distribution.
This update also make the script handle the errors related to connection and video availability in more efficient way.
View-Reviews-Comments are welcome!
Here is the updated script,

Welcome back hakerdefo!

Nice one man...  This code is just what I have been looking for

I did not have to install anything at all additional to get this to work but I did get these errors and I do not have ffprobe avprobe or avconv installed.  Even though it worked it did spit this out

Code: [Select]
WARNING: Your copy of avconv is outdated, update avconv to version 10-0 or newer if you encounter any errors.
[avconv] Destination: /home/vastone/Downloads/Julie Roberts - Wake Up Older.mp3
WARNING: Your copy of avconv is outdated, update avconv to version 10-0 or newer if you encounter any errors.
Deleting original file /home/vastone/Downloads/Julie Roberts - Wake Up Older.m4a (pass -k to keep)

What was written was also a bitrate of 237 which is OK but most everything I do is at a 320 bitrate.  I will look at the bash to see to improve that

This will be the replacement for gyts since it is no longer functioning,  I cannot tell you how much I appreciate this code and that it will be a part of VSIDO

Thank you!

Glad you liked it VastOne! The error you mentioned in your first reply was not an error but a warning! And the reason for that is youtube-dl's converter part is written keeping in mind avconv 10 or newer. If it finds the copy of your avconv version is older than 10, it spits out a warning. Now here comes the interesting part. avconv which is part of libav-tools package is at version 11.3 in vsido, which is at par with latest available upstream version. So why the error? Because Debian libav packages use different version numbering. Latest upstream libav-tools 11.3-2 is rechristned 6:11.3-2 in Debian. This fools youtube-dl and hence it warns you to update avconv.
Now regarding the audio quality, the script in most cases should get the best possible quality. Here the source audio quality plays a big part. No point in forcefully converting audio at 320 kbps if the source is not good enough, you won't get better sound and it will occupy extra space.
Cheers!!!

After much much hesitation I've started using GitHub and decided to publish 'Poor Man's Youtube Downloader' as my first project there! But remember you heard it first on VSIDO  8)

No problem.

The window manager is bspwm. A tiling wm that is EWMH compliant so you can use panels. Set conky to window_type dock or panel.

bspwm seems interesting. But it is not available in Debian repos, is it? How hard is it to compile?

Pretty straight forward to compile.

No deb packages that I'm aware of. Rooster over at #! use to maintain a repo for it, but it's gone now.

Need to get a few dependencies. Use the key binding app the author of bspwm developed.

From what I've gleaned from the Arch thread, there can be an issue with bspwm starting and you have to edit ~/.profile and add a socket or a fifo. That was a while ago when I was reading that though, I think the wm has progressed past that.

All the configuration options are in the Readme file.

Hi there VastOne,
Please update youtube-dl via 'Check for updates' option in pmytd menu and try to download that video again.
