Youtube Music Downloader
This app downloads a song by getting the audio from Youtube sources using youtube-dl and then adds song information like artist name, album name, release date, thumbnail etc by fetching it from sources like Itunes and Gaana.
NO. YoutubeDL doesn't do that. All youtube-dl does is lets you download audio from a video that you specify. This app is not yet another youtube-dl clone.
