I had posted long back about a bash wrapper over youtube-dl to fetch youtube videos using your own download manager. The youtube-dl script had changed long since then. And good news is now we don’t need to change the script in any way to get the download url. So here we go!
Grab the latest youtube-dl from here
Minor update to the linux youtube-dl script:
if [ $# -ne 2 ]
echo “Usage : $0 ”
echo “e.g : $0 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D1R-jKKp3NA steve_jobs”
todnload=$(youtube-dl -g $1) # youtube-dl is in path, right?
echo “Got the file..”$todnload
axel -n 100 $todnload -o $2″.flv” # wget -c $todnload -O $2″.flv” .if you don’t use axel
echo “Download Completed…”
ffmpeg -i $2″.flv” $2$outputfile # get the avi file
Thanks Jay for pointing this out!
