Request to add package youtube-dl in sparky repo
« on: November 08, 2018, 10:30:38 am »
Hi,

I would like to request for the package "youtube-dl", https://github.com/rg3/youtube-dl/, do be added to sparky repo since Debian don't update it regularly so it stays unusable till they upload a new version. Again an update breaks something and we have to wait for several days for a new version to be uploaded.

So if its not much work, please add youtube-dl to the sparky repo. Tons of gratitude.

Edit: I have no idea why url is being parsed as code. Sorry.

If you read the "man" of youtube-dl  you can see that it is extremely simple to update it yourself. 

type  "man youtube-dl"

One of my favourites is
youtube-dl --extract-audio --prefer-ffmpeg --audio-format mp3 --audio-quality 0 --embed-thumbnail  "URL"

Yes you need the quotation marks to escape characters in the terminal. 

edit - forgot to refernce my source of code snippet above.

If you read the "man" of youtube-dl  you can see that it is extremely simple to update it yourself. 

You can install it yourself, as it is very simple to install and update.


To install it right away for all UNIX users (Linux, macOS, etc.), type:
Code: [Select]
sudo curl -L https://yt-dl.org/downloads/latest/youtube-dl -o /usr/local/bin/youtube-dl
sudo chmod a+rx /usr/local/bin/youtube-dl

If you do not have curl, you can alternatively use a recent wget:

sudo wget https://yt-dl.org/downloads/latest/youtube-dl -O /usr/local/bin/youtube-dl
sudo chmod a+rx /usr/local/bin/youtube-dl


If you want to upgrade to the latest version:

Code: [Select]
sudo youtube-dl -U





Cheers!!
