python-youtube-downloader

Still needs a bit of cleaning up, and has a couple bugs, not bad for a couple hours of hackin'. I should have them fixed quickly though. Enjoy!

TODO

  1. Add a couple small features, like output path.
  2. Write unit tests.
  3. Add setup.py.

Installation

  1. Add it to your PYTHON PATH if you'd like, not much to her.

Usage example

>>> from youtube import YouTube
>>> yt = YouTube()
>>> yt.url = "http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ik-RsDGPI5Y"

>>> # View all encoding/quality options.
>>> yt.videos
[<Video: mp4 - 720p>,
<Video: webm - 480p>,
<Video: flv - 480p>,
<Video: webm - 360p>,
<Video: flv - 360p>,
<Video: mp4 - 360p>,
<Video: flv - 224p>]

>>> #Set the filename, or get the default.
>>> yt.filename
'Pulp Fiction - Dancing Scene'

>>> # Similar to the Django ORM, you can filter.
>>> yt.filter('flv')
[<Video: flv - 480p>, <Video: flv - 360p>, <Video: flv - 224p>]

>>> yt.filter(res='480p')
[<Video: webm - 480p>, <Video: flv - 480p>]

>>> # You can even use get()
>>> video = yt.get('mp4', '720p')

>>> # Okay, let's download!
>>> video.download()
