YouTube video downloader

Project Description

Command Line Interface using Python for Youtube

Asynchronous Python command-line YouTube video downloader.

This project was created so I could learn Python’s asyncio library.

Requirements

The following Python versions are supported:

  • Python 3.4

The following third-party libraries are used:

  • aiohttp (asynchronous HTTP communication)
  • pyperclip (optional, uses Gtk to read the clipboard)

Usage

Download:

clipy http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fm78gjYkYKc -d

User Interface:

clipy --ui

User interface written with curses from the standard library:

  1. start script with --ui option
  2. copy youtube url into clipboard
  3. follow menu: I to inquire, D to download

Notes

Only tested on Ubuntu Trusty and Mac Lion.

Python for Windows does not contain the needed curses library so the user interface will not work “out of the box”, perhaps UniCurses can help.
