I'd like to download YouTube videos by specifying a YouTube channel URL or playlist URL. I then want to convert the videos to MP3 and put them in a separate folder according to the playlist.
Is this possible? How can I do that?
This is a script you can run in Bash, assuming you have
Save it, e.g. under
It'll leave you with just the audio files in a folder named like the playlist.
I don't think there is a piece of software out there that will do all that for you, but I have a alternate way of doing it.
Using Firefox, download this free add-on: Download Flash and Video :: Add-ons for Firefox
This is a plugin that will allow your browser to detect any Flash video being played and download it with a simple click.
Xilisoft is one of the best video converters I've ever used so far. You can pretty much convert anything to anything (format to format).
As far as the rest of the question goes, I'm sure you can figure it out. :)
You can use the program
Then, you can use the program ffmpeg and convert the downloaded file to MP3.
