Re: Video Down Loader Stopped Working

The only problem I have with formatting when using my browser (Brave) to "print" to PDF is when I do the entire page; that has a lot of unneeded garbage (ads, side bars, etc. in the PDF With this extension I mentioned, I don't get the ads, since they are blocked here with uBlock Origin . :D

Re: Video Down Loader Stopped Working

For a complete webpage, I just right click, hit print, then select PDF. I can also highlight the parts I want to save, then right click and print to PDF. When I'm being more persnickty (not often), I copy and paste elements into a Libre Office document, edit as needed (or desired), then either save...

Re: Video Down Loader Stopped Working

Thank you! Done. I made and saved a tutorial for this because I know darned well I won't remember it. No problem. :) And yeah, I know GitHub can very daunting when you see it for the first time, but it is sometimes inevitable when you need an up to date version of an open source program (Linux Mint...

Re: Video Down Loader Stopped Working

How the heck do I update? I didn't see anywhere on the page you linked on how to do it (I'm learning to really hate github!). I haven't bothered to add youtube dl(c) to my right click menu. It isn't a high priority right now. For now you can just update by running the commands I gave above again: s...

Re: Video Down Loader Stopped Working

@ marts23 and the Streak. Thanks for the suggestions but both of those went right over my head. Right now, I've got a lot going on (and not just with this computer; I wasn't this busy before I retired), youtube-dl is working just fine for me and is easy to use, and I also have youtube-dlc installed...

Re: Video Down Loader Stopped Working

I couldn't see where it would list youtube-dl or dlc. You'll have to add it via the options. 1. Click on "Add Browser". 2. In the window popping up give it a name like "Download with youtube-dl" and add the command: /usr/local/bin/youtube-dl . 3. You can choose an icon there as ...

Re: Video Down Loader Stopped Working

Dang! Up to 30 4k downloads a day? I though I was being extravagant doing an average of 1-3 1080 downloads a day. I feel so inadequate now. :wink: (I'm not putting you down, btw.) I don't really need 4k on the kinds of videos I download (almost entirely tutorials), not to mention none of my monitor...

Re: Video Down Loader Stopped Working

Thank you! Dummy me got confused by all that meaningless (to me) text at the top of the page and didn't look far enough down. No problem! GitHub can be rather intimidating, when you first encounter it. But on the top part (at the right), there is a section "Releases", pointing to: https:/...

Re: Video Down Loader Stopped Working

Thanks for the suggestions. I had someone suggest youtube-dl, who told me how to install and use it, and it's been working fine so far. I went to the github page to check out youtube-dlc and I can't make out heads nor tails of how to use that site to get a program. Can anyone tell me how to use git...

Re: Video Down Loader Stopped Working

Look into youtube-dlc . It looks like they're trying to pick up the slack. As I said in the Chat section: I've switched to youtube-dlc now. Unfortunately that repo was also taken down, but restarted under a different name: yt-dlc. https://github.com/blackjack4494/yt-dlc It's actively maintained and...

Re: Microsoft trying to get youtube-dl repo back online?

I've switched to youtube-dlc now. Unfortunately that repo was also taken down, but restarted under a different name: yt-dlc. https://github.com/blackjack4494/yt-dlc It's actively maintained and has fixed a lot of issues youtube-dl had in the last months. He removed the infringing parts from the sour...

Re: Unable to install Youtube-dl and GUI

Thank you nicolaasjan for the detailed explanation. All clear now. It is great to see these options to make the process even more convenient. I think I leave everything as it is now, but might look at the web browser extension later. Thanks to all who helped with this topic! Cheers Good to hear you...

Re: Unable to install Youtube-dl and GUI

Hi nicolaasjan, Could you please explain what this .bash_aliases file is about? I don't have it. How do I create it? What does it do? Thank you Hi gusztav, It's a file that contains 'shortcuts' to commands. :) With the line: alias youtube-dl='python3 /usr/local/bin/youtube-dl' in the .bash_aliases ...

Re: Unable to install Youtube-dl and GUI

The program is looking for python. These commands are also needed. sudo apt install python3-pip -y sudo ln -s /usr/bin/python3 /usr/local/bin/python Ooops, sorry, I didn't realize Mint 20 had a messed up python. My regular OS is Ubuntu 18.04... So I booted Mint 20, installed youtube-dl from the rep...

Re: Error Messages When Using YouTube DL

Because of YouTube has clearly fallen from grace, I now use alternative YouTube players, such as Invidious or ...

Re: Error Messages When Using YouTube DL

None of the videos I've tried to download are restricted, so it can't be anything related to that 1. Do you have ffmpeg (or avconv ) and ffprobe (or avprobe ) installed? 2. If you're using Linux Mint 20, then be aware that python2 is no longer installed by default (youtube-dl uses that by default, ...

Re: Error Messages When Using YouTube DL

Actually, it does say 2020.07.28 At the moment there is an open issue about youtube-dl not handling restricted video's on YouTube. See: https://github.com/ytdl-org/youtube-dl/issues/26152 Could that be your issue as well? I have applied the - not yet implemented - fix to the source code and then co...

Re: Grub Update trouble RESOLVED

I don't like any of this. It's not like Linux to have a mess like this. I see some of this seems to be related to Ubuntu -- which as we know is produced by Canonical and is affiliated with MSFT. Yuk No wonder we are having trouble with it. Other distributions were also affected... https://arstechni...
