Thanks

Nice script, I did think that you might not want to wait for the extra step of choosing quality(format) every time so I put an an extra menu item called default format so that It just downloads at format choice 18 for me without having to wait and choose, maybe you could add something like that in your script.

Thanks for the idea!
I think I'll implement that!
By the way I have almost finished a GUI version of the script. Will post it here once it's ready!
Thanks again! Cheers!!!

A few real life events kept me from completing the GUI version! Will let you know once it is ready, which should be soon, hopefully ;)
Cheers!!!

I always have the hackerdefo's pmytd script around, but most of the times I just want the 22 format, so I have a fully stripped down version to go on the fly without choices or questions. I call it yt22. When I want something different than that  I go full pmytd instead.

Code: [Select]
#!/bin/bash

printf "%s\n" "" "Enter the youtube video link" ""
read link
youtube-dl -f 22 --output "/home/$USER/Downloads/%(title)s.%(ext)s" "$link"
exit 0

In fact I don't use it as a script anymore. I made it a bash function so no in-between steps. Even faster. Just  typing yt22 paste-your-link-here

Thanks Snap, I will use your version too and make a bash function from it.
I was using a changed version of hackerdefo's pmytd script, just with an extra "Default-Download" choice.

I knew someone asked somewhere about youtube-dl script. I just couldn't remember in which community.  :D
So here we are. I've played with yad and youtube-dl and I came up with this script and debianized it: yt-get
Supports both lists and videos, you can select a format to download for a single video or download multiple videos/lists with the second dialogue.
Have fun.  ;)

Hey Misko... downloaded and installed and after updating youtube-dl all is working as advertised... I love the multiple gui options and the ease to switch between them

Well done!

I recommend you start a new thread with this excellent tool
