How to get youtube-dl-gui? [solved]

Hi, i have been trying to get the GUI from some others places -- it is not in devuan -- but every time i try to install the application i got the same problem it says: 'this is not a Debian package'.

thanks in advanced for any idea.

Re: How to get youtube-dl-gui? [solved]

You could try this one. I don't know if it works with the current version of youtube-dl - this is a couple years old.
http://distro.ibiblio.org/refracta/file … u1_all.deb

If you want to recompile it, the source package can be found here. This is the same version as above. There may be newer sources (and maybe that's what you were trying to install.)

Re: How to get youtube-dl-gui? [solved]

Maybe the .desktop file is missing. Here's what mine looks like in jessie (for an older version)

/usr/share/applications/gtk-youtube-viewer.desktop

[Desktop Entry]
Name=GTK Youtube Viewer
Version=1.0
Comment=Search and play YouTube videos with MPlayer.
Exec=gtk-youtube-viewer
Icon=gtk-youtube-viewer
StartupNotify=false
Terminal=false
Type=Application
Categories=AudioVideo;

I found it but it do not works when click to execute, nothing happen. Any way thank you.

MXlinux has something different: youtube-dl-gui but it is not at debian packages.

Re: How to get youtube-dl-gui? [solved]

I have tried many times this option with gdebi but every time i got the same error message:

youtube-dl-gui-master.zip is not a debian package.

MIME file is an application/zip and can't be installed in this system.

Re: How to get youtube-dl-gui? [solved]

of course a .zip file is not a .deb file....
you need to build it yourself

first make sure you have the dependencies:
    Python 2.7.3+
    wxPython 3
    TwoDict
    GNU gettext (to build the package)
    FFmpeg (optional, to post process video files)

that would be:

sudo apt-get install python python-wxgtk3.0 gettext ffmpeg git

TwoDict is not available in the Repository so you need to complie that too

git clone https://github.com/MrS0m30n3/twodict.git
cd twodict
sudo python setup.py install

now you have all the dependencies and can build youtube-dl-gui like this:

git clone https://github.com/MrS0m30n3/youtube-dl-gui.git
cd youtube-dl-gui
sudo python setup.py install

now you can run it with

./build/scripts-2.7/youtube-dl-gui

it should also automatically be added to your /usr/local/bin
so you can just type youtube-dl-gui in the terminal to start it

@ alphalpha: Very cool YT-dl, quick and easy too! cool

2018-11-14--1542224579_1366x768_scrot.th.png

it should also automatically be added to your /usr/local/bin
so you can just type youtube-dl-gui in the terminal to start it

Running Openbox, added

/usr/local/bin/youtube-dl-gui

...to obmenu!

Ops checked and works as advertised!

Re: How to get youtube-dl-gui? [solved]

I'm not zephyr but . . . right click on the panel then "Add new items".   "Launcher" is the first option on the list here.  There might also be an option to do the in the youtube-dl GUI.

Re: How to get youtube-dl-gui? [solved]

It never works. Most of the icon/applications that are coming with Devuan can be adding to xfce panel but not all of them and if you install something (not from synaptic) most the time is a big problem. They are not at the menu neither ...

i was trying this:

I created a launcher, then i was looking for the GUI:

keos@kaos:~$ whereis youtube-dl-gui
youtube-dl-gui: /usr/local/bin/youtube-dl-gui

And:

Nothing happen ... mad

But thanks for answer my question.. smile

Re: How to get youtube-dl-gui? [solved]

Not my language, but I guess "orden" is for the command to execute, and then that is where the full pathname to the program should be. The next field, "directario de trabajo", is probably the working directory, and I would suggest you pinpoint one of your own directories there.

Re: How to get youtube-dl-gui? [solved]

Slightly beside the point, but, I use youtube.dll as the download-manager of SMPlayer/SMTube; that couple works fine for me.

Cheers,

Re: How to get youtube-dl-gui? [solved]

Recent Youtube changes broke gtk-youtube-viewer (maybe other clients). It was forked to "gtk straw viewer" and works again. Well here and for now at least.. https://github.com/trizen/straw-viewer

Using a youtube client avoids heavyweight browser loading, ads, tracking... This one is quite light on deps and system resources but has a very good descriptive gui. No qt deps. Probably needs latest youtube-dl to run properly https://github.com/ytdl-org/youtube-dl

I posted (probably the only) deb package: http://exegnulinux.net/apt/pool/main/s/straw-viewer/

Sources, dsc et al are at the same url if anyone wants to inspect, compile or modify yourself. If interested, please post back if you see anything wrong with the package.

EDIT: youtube-dl (and anything else that uses it) will puke unless you update it quite often.
