  • Best current way to mass/single download YouTube content?
    2 projects | reddit.com/r/DataHoarder | 23 Oct 2021
    I personally can recommend Tartube as a nice GUI to take care of all of my yt-dlp needs. The newest version does support it (and basically any other youtube-dl fork) out of the box. To ensure decent video quality I use a TheFrenchGhosty script.
  • How to download entire youtube channel videos?
    1 project | reddit.com/r/youtubedl | 17 Oct 2021
    To the OP: I'd recommend looking at the youtube-dl documentation and perhaps these scripts as examples https://github.com/TheFrenchGhosty/TheFrenchGhostys-Ultimate-YouTube-DL-Scripts-Collection.
  • Those of you using yt-dlp, do you know what causes partial downloads sometimes?

    Download it, install FFMPEG correctly, and use this guy's scripts.
