viddl-rb:
Created by Marc Seeger (@rb2k)
Repo: http://github.com/rb2k/viddl-rb
Build Status

Installation:
gem install viddl-rb

Usage:

Download a video:
viddl-rb http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QH2-TGUlwu4

Download a video and extract the audio:
viddl-rb http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QH2-TGUlwu4 --extract-audio

In both cases we'll name the output file according to the video title.

Requirements:

  • curl/wget or the progress bar gem
  • Nokogiri
  • ffmpeg if you want to extract audio tracks from the videos

Contributors:

  • kl: Windows support (who knew!), bug fixes, veoh plugin, metacafe plugin
  • divout aka Ivan K: blip.tv plugin, bugfixes
  • Sniper: bugfixes
  • Serabe aka Sergio Arbeo: packaging viddl as a binary
