Have you ever had a video or song on YouTube suddenly disapear from your playlist? It’s hard to find out what the content was and you might never remember. With YT-DLP, you can download both videos and audio to save what you love.

This project is meant to make the downloading of videos with YT-DLP easier and simpler. The user provides the URL and is asked for several common options they can select including extracting audio.

Original repository can be found below:

Winner for Best Veteran Hack!


The code that the user needs to execute will require the installation of YT-DLP and ffmpeg if extracting audio.

They can be installed with homebrew with the following code into the terminal:

brew install yt-dlp
brew install ffmpeg



The extraction of video will attempt to download in the selected format, if not possible, it’ll download the best video.
