youtube-dl GUI simplify

Project description

Youtube downloader is a GUI helper for youtube-dl. It provides a graphical interface to download videos from with conveniences like track the download, pause, or select the media format.




This software is based on PySide2 and youtube-dl.


Youtube downloader’s goal is comfort. To add your download you can just paste the link into the input and hit enter or press button but I strongly recommend to drag a youtube video’s thumbnail and drop it into youtube downloader.


Web Browser integration

Youtube Downloader is integrated with Firefox, that's mean it will read currently opened tabs with YouTube's links. It provides a feature to quick download currently played videos from YouTube.


Theme can be customized.



Prepare youtube downloader to work.


git clone && cd youtube-downloader
python build
sudo install 


pip install youtube-downloader


Youtube downloader is a free software released under the GPLv3.
