Description

Instrumental-downloader was created as a command-line tool used to download a list of instrumentals based on just the song name.(and sometimes the artist is needed to identify the song) This tool is based off of youtube-dl, a tool used to download youtube videos from their url. The Python interpreter version 3.6+ is needed for this program. FFprobe/ ffmpeg needs to be installed in the PATH, as that is the program used to download instrumentals as mp3 files.

instrumental-dl -f FILE_NAME
instrumental-dl -s "SONG_NAMES" ["SONG_NAMES"...]
  (with -s the song name needs to be in quotations
  if it contains any spaces)
