----------------------------------------
    1.  Description
----------------------------------------

    qytdl (long-form: qYoutube-DL) is a Qt frontend to Youtube-DL.  You can use
    it to build a queue of URLs, downloading the entire list when you've
    finished.
    
    There are currently only two quality options:  "auto" (best) and 720p.  The
    program has no conversion capabilities.  'tis but a simple frontend, m'lord.





----------------------------------------
    2.  Requirements
----------------------------------------

    -   Python 3 (tested:  version 3.6.3)
    -   PyQt5 (python-pyqt5) for Python 3 (tested:  version 5.9.2-1)
    -   youtube-dl (tested: 2017.11.26-1)



----------------------------------------
    3.  Installation / Uninstallation
----------------------------------------

    To install, simply run 'make install' with superuser privileges.  There is
    no compilation involved, so the scripts and other bits of the program will
    be copied to where they need to be.

    To remove the program and all its accessories, return to the directory to
    which you originally extracted the tarball (or whichever directory has the
    Makefile for this program) and type 'make uninstall', again with superuser
    privileges.


----------------------------------------
    4.  Usage
