yt-mp3chanrip() { for count in 1 51 101 151 201 251 301; do for i in $(curl -s http://gdata.youtube.com/feeds/api/users/"$1"/uploads\?start-index="$count"\&max-results=50 | grep -Eo "watch\?v=[^[:space:]\"\'\\]{11}" | uniq); do ffmpeg -i $(wget http://youtube.com/"$i" -qO- | sed -n "/fmt_url_map/{s/[\'\"\|]/\n/g;p}" | sed -n '/^fmt_url_map/,/videoplayback/p' | sed -e :a -e '$q;N;5,$D;ba' | tr -d '\n' | sed -e 's/\(.*\),\(.\)\{1,3\}/\1/') -vn -ab 128k "$(youtube-dl -e http://youtube.com/"$i").mp3"; done; done; unset count i; }

create the function and run with

yt-mp3chanrip YoutubeUsername

Great for channels like ukfDrumAndBass that only post music. No more need for third party browser plugins or websites that only convert one vid one at a time. It'll convert and save to CWD up to 300 of a user's videos to mp3s, one at a time. To increase, just increment the $count pattern. This is a concoction from commands #7718 and #7752, so it uses ffmpeg wget, curl, sed, and youtube-dl -- youtube-dl is only used to get the title of the video which it uses to name the mp3 file. You can use a different naming method if you want and the function should still work.

yt-chanrip() { for i in $(curl -s http://gdata.youtube.com/feeds/api/users/"$1"/uploads | grep -Eo "watch\?v=[^[:space:]\"\'\\]{11}" | uniq); do youtube-dl --title --no-overwrites http://youtube.com/"$i"; done }

create the function then run 'yt-chanrip username' to download that user's entire channel.

uses youtube-dl and the GData API. similar to http://www.commandlinefu.com/commands/view/3154/download-youtube-playlist

find . -type f -iname "*.mp3" -exec id3v2 --delete-all {} \;
for i in $(chkconfig --list | grep "4:on" | awk {'print $1'}); do chkconfig --level 4 "$i" off; done

works in fedora, centos and presumably other distros that use chkconfig

IFS=$'\n'; i=1; ls -lt *mp3 | cut -d ":" -f2 | cut -d " " -f2- | while read f; do mv "$f" $(echo "$i"."$f"); ((i++)); done

i use this after ripping internet radio streams to number the files as they originally played (even though streamripper can do this with -q).

to number other types of files, or all files, just change the *mp3. to rename directories only you could use

... ls -lt | grep ^d | cut -d ":" -f2 | cut -d " " -f2- | while read ...
