« on: November 12, 2019, 05:20:38 am »
Hi

want to download video in peppermint 10  terminal but receive error -

[youtube] _uQrJ0TkZlc: Downloading video info webpage
WARNING: Unable to extract video title
[youtube] _uQrJ0TkZlc: Extracting video information
ERROR: Unable to extract uploader name; please report this issue on https://yt-dl.org/bug . Make sure you are using the latest version; see  https://yt-dl.org/update  on how to update. Be sure to call youtube-dl with the --verbose flag and include its complete output.

Is there another way to do it.

Best way to do it .. use ClipGrab.

ClipGrab is distributed as an AppImage, so theoretically you could just download it somewhere, mark it executable, and run it .. but we're going to also add it to the main menu with an icon.

Open a terminal and run these commands in sequence...

Create a directory for the ClipGrab AppImage:
Code: [Select]
mkdir -p ~/.AppImages/ClipGrab
make it the current directory:
Code: [Select]
cd ~/.AppImages/ClipGrab
download the ClipGrab appimage into it:
Code: [Select]
wget -O ClipGrab-Latest.AppImage https://download.clipgrab.org/ClipGrab-3.8.5-x86_64.AppImage
make the ClipGrab-3.8.4-x86_64.AppImage executable:
Code: [Select]
chmod +x ~/.AppImages/ClipGrab/ClipGrab-Latest.AppImage
download an image to use as an icon:
Code: [Select]
wget http://icons.iconarchive.com/icons/papirus-team/papirus-apps/256/clipgrab-icon.png
create a launcher for it by running:
Code: [Select]
xed ~/.local/share/applications/clipgrab.desktop
and when a blank file opens, make it read:-
Code: [Select]
[Desktop Entry]
Type=Application
Name=ClipGrab
Comment=Download YouTube, Dailymotion, etc. Video Clips
Exec=/home/mark/.AppImages/ClipGrab/ClipGrab-Latest.AppImage
Icon=/home/mark/.AppImages/ClipGrab/clipgrab-icon.png
Terminal=false
StartupWMClass=ClipGrab
Categories=Network;
StartupNotify=false
(be sure to change the 2 instances of 'mark' to your username)

SAVE the file.

You should now have a launcher at

Menu > Internet > ClipGrab

Hi smitla,

If you still prefer to continue using youtube-dl then be sure to run the update. In a terminal enter:

Code: [Select]
sudo youtube-dl -U

They update it fairly regularly and so I have the habit of running this update about once every week.  ;) If you continue to have trouble with it, then I guess you are best to go with ClipGrab (which I also use, but find it much slower than youtube-dl).  8)

Many thx for helping.
Prefer youtube-dl

Run the update but:

linux@linux-HP-Laptop-15-da1xxx ~ $ sudo youtube-dl -U
[sudo] password for linux:
Usage: youtube-dl [OPTIONS] URL [URL...]

youtube-dl: error: youtube-dl's self-update mechanism is disabled on Debian.
Please update youtube-dl using apt(8).
See https://packages.debian.org/sid/youtube-dl for the latest packaged version.

Hi smitla,

Hey! Great that you got it working. I don't use the debian package of youtube-dl but instead install it using the instructions here (from the youtube-dl download page). When you use that, you can get the latest versions using the command that I gave you in my last post.  ;)
