    i don't think that's really possible, as you can't really tag youtube uploads, you can only give them titles descriptions and thumbnails, not artist/song info, the way i go about downloading music nowdays is either using soulseek as most music there is already tagged, i just need to get a higher resolution cover most of the time, or through Newpipe which is essentially that website you linked but completely ad free, it's not really for audiophiles though as you can only download audio in 128kbps (which is the max youtube's compression allows) but if you don't have a HiFi setup or don't care all that much for audio quality it works just fine, the files don't come tagged though, for that i use Automatag which is not ideal but speeds up the process a little by looking up the name of the file on spotify and extracting the track data (artist, cover, year, genre etc) from there and automatically applying it to the file, but since it looks up the track info only on spotify you won't be able to tag songs and albums that are not uploaded there.

  • spotify-downloader

    Download your Spotify playlists and songs along with album art and metadata (from YouTube if a match is found).

    Mostly I use SpotDL (GitHub) if I want to download a song but I need to search it on Spotify and then download it.
