  • Same as other command, however uses youtube-dl internal search (thanks to qoxxxx mentioning this) It does however seem to be a little buggy and youtube-dl crashes sometimes. ## pyt 'Stairway to heaven - Led Zeppelin' pyt 'brain damage - Pink Floyd' No web browser or even X needed. Just a cli and internet connection! mplayer is pauseable and can skip ahead This may break if youtube changes their search html.

    pyt() { youtube-dl -q -f bestaudio --max-downloads 1 --no-playlist --default-search ${2:-ytsearch} "$1" -o - | mplayer -vo null /dev/fd/3 3<&0 </dev/tty; }

  • yt2mp3(){ for j in `seq 1 301`;do i=`curl -s$1/uploads\?start-index=$j\&max-results=1|grep -o "watch[^&]*"`;ffmpeg -i `wget$i -qO-|grep -o 'url_map"[^,]*'|sed -n '1{s_.*|__;s_\\\__g;p}'` -vn -ab 128k "`youtube-dl -e ${i#*=}`.mp3";done;} squeezed the monster (and nifty ☺) command from 7776 from 531 characters to 284 characters, but I don't see a way to get it down to 255. This is definitely a kludge!

  • Before you use this command you want to replace everything after the "https:" with the url of the video which you want to download. This string and it's switches will use "youtube-dl" to download the Youtube url into the directory/folder where it is called from. It will output the video using the same name as Youtube uses.

    youtube-dl -c -o "%(title)s" -f 18

  • The above line is the meat of the script. What I do is have a key in uzbl that puts the current URL into the clipboard (use if I am on the YouTube page) or right click a link to a YouTube page, or however you want to get the URL into the clipboard. With xbindkeys I run this from the keyboard. The script: #!/bin/bash # Get URL from command line arg if given, else use clipboard. if [[ "$1" == "" ]] ; then url=$(xclip -o) else url="$1" fi # Strip it down to remove cruft url="${url%%&feature*}" url="${url%%&list*}" url="${url%%&index*}" # optional zenity --warning --timeout=1 --title="Running mplayer" --text="$url" mplayer $(youtube-dl -f best -g "$url" 2>/dev/null) Show Sample Output

    mplayer $(youtube-dl -f best -g "$url" 2>/dev/null)

What's this? is the place to record those command-line gems that you return to again and again. That way others can gain from your CLI wisdom and you from theirs too. All commands can be commented on, discussed and voted up or down.

Efficiently extract lines between markers
GNU Sed can 'address' between two regex, but it continues parsing through to the end of the file. This slight alteration causes it to terminate reading the input file once the STOP match is made. In my example I have included an extra '/START/d' as my 'start' marker line contains the 'stop' string (I'm extracting data between 'resets' and using the time stamp as the 'start'). My previous coding using grep is slightly faster near the end of the file, but overall (extracting all the reset cycles in turn) the new SED method is quicker and a lot neater.
