youtube-dl says bye bye to ffmpeg

Posted 06-11-2015 at 05:36 AM by jheengut

I use the python program youtube-dl almost on every website to download videos legally.

There have been/are some website whereby the protocol used is not understood by youtube-dl.

So a more powerful program such as ffmpeg is used if it can parse the particular stream. Advantage of ffmpeg was that the command used was simple to use and the ability to modify the options were easy. But its greatest problem was that it could not resume the download and had to start from...

Posted 03-25-2015 at 05:35 AM by jheengut
