Download songs from Deezer

Project description


Project inspired by spotify-dl

Downloads songs from any Deezer URL (Playlist or song).

How do I get this thing running?

Pre-requisite: You need Python 3+

  1. Install using pip sudo pip3 install deezer_dl (use pip if your distro natively provides Python 3)

  2. Create your YouTube API key & fetch the keys from Google Developer Console. Set the key as YOUTUBE_DEV_KEY environment variable: export YOUTUBE_DEV_KEY='your-youtube-key'

  3. Run the script using deezer_dl. deezer_dl -u <deezer_url>

    • deezer_url is a link to Deezer's playlist. You can get it from the share music menu.
  4. To retrieve download songs as MP3, you will need to install ffmpeg.

  • Linux users can get them by installing libav-tools by using apt-get (sudo apt-get install -y libav-tools) or a package manager which comes with your distro
  • Windows users can download FFMPEG pre-built binaries from here. Extract the file using 7-zip to a foldrer and add the folder to your PATH environment variable
  1. All songs will be saved in $HOME/deezer_dl/songs. Also it will create a database deezerdl.db for caching all URL links so is not needed to access Google API to get the correct URL for the same song.
