clipgrab downloaded successfully, but where my files goes ?


I have downloaded a video from youtube using clipgrab, it said successfully downloaded.. but when i want to look for it, it said file not found. What happened ? is there anywhere i can find log or live log on clipgrab activity log ?

The attached photo is the clipgrab that says downloaded successfully. I downloaded it to desktop, but i just can't find it in desktop folder.

Where is log or activity logged of clipgrab, at which point the downloaded file was removed or what happened.. why the downloaded file is gone ?

*If it is required, i am using manjaro kde , but this should be not relevant to what happned*.

Downloads usually are placed in the Downloads folder unless you have directed it elsewhere.
Try looking around a little bit because they are seldom placed directly on the desktop.

If you know the filename, try
Code:
find ~/ -name filename

Check the preferences under ClipGrab and see if there's an option to set a folder where files are downloaded to. Wow, I learned something today...ClipGrab. I'm a youtube-dl fan, but it's nice to know about another option.

I hope you are having fun with clibgrab .. lol
Clibgrab is using youtube-dl cli command itself to download from youtube.
However, youtube have initiated an algorithm to throttle "youtube-dl cli" hence clipgrab also being affected.. Lately download youtube video is way way slower then watch it online in browser.

A workaround is to use yt-dlp.

It's not exactly the same, but running it as "yt-dlp --compat-options youtube-dl ..." should be the same as "youtube-dl ..." and thus might allow Clipgrab to continue doing whatever it does without the throttling.

Thanks for telling.

I also have read that aria2 can make clibgrap overcome throttling.. downloaded it, but still learning how to use it.

BTW, I don't understand this that you said:
Since clibgrab is programmed to use youtube-dl to download .. how does it "switch" from default "youtube-dl" to "yt-dlp" ? I only heard about this cli now , from you. no idea how to make it work with clibgrab.

first get the real youtube-dl out of your path (uninstall it)

you could either simlink youtube-dl directly to yt-dlp, or create a "youtube-dl" script to use that compat option switch to be 100% sure it does it right and put it in your path.

i.e.
Code:
sudo ln -s /path/to/yt-dlp /usr/local/bin/youtube-dl

Ahem.
Code:
find ~/ -name '*part-of-filename-you-can-type*'
Maybe even use -iname.
