Youtubedl-gui is a simple new graphical interface for the popular command-line YouTube downloader youtube-dl.
The tool is quite simple to use, just paste the video URL, select audio quality and format, video resolution and format, and click download! And of course, there’s an option to change the destination folder of your downloads.
Once you click download, a small dialog will pop up with the process bar.

Waited awhile for the gui version to back after 18.04+ nuked dependencies. I’ve been using TarTube in the interim buts is way overboard than just what gui used to be.
I’m getting errors when installing from PPA:
dpkg: error processing package youtubedl-gui (–configure):
installed youtubedl-gui package post-installation script subprocess returned error exit status 1
Errors were encountered while processing:
I do have pip3 version of youtube-dl installed, not the standard one. And install says: Requirement already satisfied: youtube-dl in /usr/local/lib/python3.8/dist-packages (2021.1.16)
gtk-update-icon-cache: The generated cache was invalid.
Looks like this is important for Ubuntu install 20.04+:
sudo apt install build-essential qt5-default qtdeclarative5-dev ffmpeg
and I was able to do:
git clone https://github.com/JaGoLi/ytdl-gui.git
sudo make install
but audio and video still don’t download; get errors
Did not install for me after installing the developer’s PPA. I am using Linus Mint 19.3 Tricia.
