Re: Clipgrab

i seen there is a way using ppa's but i would advise against in IMHO.

you could try youtube-dl in the repos. It is cli tool but easy to use


sudo apt-get install youtube-dl

   

and then just call the app along with video address in terminal

youtube-dl https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=linktovideo

 

the default save location is your home folder

To use packages from PPAs "safely" in a pure Debian system such as BunsenLabs, grab the source code and compile it locally instead of using the (potentially incompatible) binaries from the archive which may b0rk your machine.

Re: Clipgrab

"clive" works great and is the Debian Wheezy repository, so I assume it is available for BL also.

Just right click on the Youtube video and save the URL.

Then:

$ clive the-youtube-url.com

And it will save it in Home, and convert automatically to mp4 if I remember correctly.

Re: Clipgrab

there's at least 2 utilities that should work flawlessly on jessie:

youtube-dl
youtube-viewer (gtk-youtube-viewer, with a graphical interface)

these allow you to watch & download youtube videos (maybe others too).
youtube itself offers various formats, and one can request these formats with both utilities, so i don't see much sense in transcoding. except maybe if you want audio only - but i'm pretty sure youtube-dl can do that, too.

clipgrab looks decent enough, but if i were you i'd make sure it doesn't connect to some other website for transcoding (or just data mining).

It can, transcoding would be only necessary if you specifically want mp3 or some other weird format.

Re: Clipgrab

If you want a simple gui for youtube-dl, then try a yad dialog script: https://github.com/capn-damo/scripts/bl … er/youtube
NB It is a WIP
