I have youtube-dl gui installed in windows and have it on my Mint ubuntu machines, but have not been able to get it installed on LMde. Has anyone successfully attempted this ? or who knows, maybe no one likes those apps.

Try here (I guess "youtube-dl-gui" and "youtube-dlG" are the same thing):
https://github.com/MrS0m30n3/youtube-dl-gui
Install From Source
Download & extract the source
Change directory into youtube-dl-gui-0.4
Run python setup.py install

youtube-dl-gui/youtube-dlG wouldn't install for me.

File:
-rw-rw-r-- 1 <user><user> 212002 Jun 18 19:57 youtube-dl-gui-master.zip

Code: Select all

$ python setup.py install
No module named twodict
$ W yout
grub-mklayout
youtube-dl
$
It doesn't say whether or not it installed, but "W yout" = find executables in $PATH with "yout" in the name, case insensitive, so probably not installed.

Apparently it needs "python2-twodict" package, which is not in the repos.

I have never considered looking at a gui for youtube-dl.
The command line for this is not complicated at all.
