youtube-dlg PPA?

Postby Newbie_from_NJ » Sat Nov 11, 2017 12:21 am

Hi guys,

I installed youtube-dlg using below, first ppa. However, I found another guide (link #2) with a different PPA. Is there an official PPA I should be using instead?

In the meantime, I have uninstalled youtube-dlg:
sudo apt remove youtube-dlg && sudo apt autoremove

I also removed the PPA and Authentication key from Software Sources. Is there anything else I should do?

1. sudo add-apt-repository ppa:flexiondotorg/youtube-dl-gui
Source: ... ntu-16-04/

2. sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nilarimogard/webupd8
Source: ... utube.html

I wonder if you would find that answer on the github developer page?

Hi "Newbie_from_NJ",

I just read your post and the good replies to it. Here are my thoughts on this as well.

I have been using the Webupd8 PPA (Your Link #2) for this for years and it has always worked for me... I would not recommend using 2 PPA's for the same software, so remove one of them, and reinstall "youtube-dlg" if need be.

Hope this helps ...
