How do I use youtube-dl?

| I have no idea how to


| Asssuming you have Python installed, it's as easy as 'youtube-dl URL' (or 'python youtube-dl URL') in command line. The default parameters should be good enough.

If not then refer to the installation guide,
https://github.com/ytdl-org/youtube-dl/blob/master/README.md#installation

It covers installation on major platforms. Feel free to send another post if you're still lost.


| # man youtube-dl will help with any further questions.

since manpages may be outdated and not present in any distro, a more universal solution with probably more up-to-date content:
youtube-dl --help |less


| can i proxy that crap


| How to Google?


| >>681930 idk. Google it.


| >>681797
open a terminal emulator or command-line-interface with the youtube-dl command available (which should be after proper installation), then type:
youtube-dl --help |less
/proxy [Enter]

protip: hit "n" for next and "p" for previous search result.

no google necessary.


| Exactly what issues are being had. Additionally, if command line is a bit complex for your taste, Clipgrab is a viable option, but be sure to have some decent PC specs.
