Yes, you are right, sorry, the script isn't doing what I described, it's more
involved.

But my point was that manually copying the file from /tmp doesn't work either,
and one needs to dig deep in order to steal the file from the flash plugin.

Best, :-)

Hi folks! :-)

Just a small note... I just tried and found out that the youtube-dl doesn't
work anymore. Reading the youtube-dl FAQ page, it says that YouTube has
changed the protocol again (since September 2012) and that we should update
the script to the latest version.


Never had a problem with:

This is a Firefox add-on. The OP didn't say he was using Firefox (or any
other browser). At least keepvid.com appears to be browser-neutral,
though it does use Javascript.

In my case, the main disadvantage of the browser-related downloaders (as
opposed to a command line utility) is that I have a hard time scripting them.
If I am given 100 YouTube links to download locally, am I supposed to
copy/paste the addresses one by one into those
plugins/websites/javascripts/whatever? Really, the simplest way is to create a
bash script:

#! /bin/bash
youtube-dl -t <url1>
youtube-dl -t <url2>
youtube-dl -t <url3>
...

and let it run. That's my main reason for using youtube-dl. Then again, my
usecase is not very common... ;-)

Best, :-)

Even simpler:

#while read a; do youtube-dl -t "$a";done

Then you paste the list of URLs and press Ctrl-D.

No script! :-)

Default A note on youtube-dl

Folks, sorry for interrupting this interesting conversation about
youtube downloader. My question is in the same field. At least about
another goooooogle product - search engine. Is there a way to store
google search results in a text file from bash script? I used to write
site parsers to grab contents from some sites using bash utilities
such as wget. Now I want to get to the next level and parse google
output. Using my usual way goooogle returns 'sorry, you're computer
simmingly'.

I went to the link to download the downloadhelper, but I couldn't find a

button anywhere, and I don't want some fink software messing with my
registry
or trying to sell me something I don't want or need. Where can I go to

In Firefox select Tools->Add-ons and enter "downloadhelper" into the
search box. I've had luck with "Video DownloadHelper 4.9.10".

You do understand, don't you, that this mailing list is for Fedora Linux
and the registry is a Windows-specific issue?

That's OK, tish happens. Let us know how things work in Linux, or if
the program fails in the same way in both.

It's just an add-on so if you have the latest Firefox it works just as well whatever the OS.
If you're having issues installing it on XP (through the add-ons tab) then it can be something with the OS or some other extension interfering.

I don't use Windows but something I can recommend for both XP and Linux, in case you don't use already, is 'adblock plus' (another extension; just search for adblock on the add-ons tab). These never ending loading pages are more often than not due to ads or tracking sites and adblock plus just makes browsing much easier.
