Every time I change from one OS to another, I feel the same: I must find an app to download any funny videos my daughter watched on Youtube and never have one that fits my needs completely. I never thought in a Python script to do this task. Their name: mps-youtube
This script will allow us to watch videos, download them to any resolution, create lists local and much more, all from console.
You need to download this script and install it with: python get-pip.py
Now install mps-youtube with:
[sudo] pip install mps-youtube
Depending on the chosen operating system, you must install a player or another (see GitHub page for more detail).
To run it, simply type: mpsyt
Upon entering the application, you will have a prompt which ask us to introduce the commands to execute. Here I show you a few examples:
/Aladdin # Search with the word(s) desired d 5 # Download video from 5th position. You can choose the file format (webm, mp4, flv, 3gp,...) set player mplayer h # Help i 5 # Info about the 5th video p,n # back page (p) & next (n)
