youtube2mp3: A very simple system to download YouTube music videos and convert them to mp3 files

This is a very simple and short Bash script to provide a GUI for downloading YouTube music videos and convert them to MP3 files. I developed this for my personal use (and to help a few friends) and then thought it would be helpful to others, too. So here it is.

The script currently depends on zenity, youtube-dl and ffmpeg. I have tested it on Ubuntu GNU/Linux machines.

How to Install

  • Run install.sh

Alternatively you can simply make youtube2mp3.sh executable and then run:

./youtube2mp3.sh

on the command line (or create a shortcut to it for easier access).

Here's a screenshot :

Installation system and bitrate selection support has been added by PTKDev. See BashScript-YouTube2mp3 for more details.
