Have you ever come across a YouTube video or playlist that you wanted to save for later but didn’t know how? Look no further than youtube-dl, a free and open-source command-line utility that lets you download YouTube videos and playlists with ease.

To get started, open up Command Prompt and navigate to the location of the youtube-dl script. If you’re using Windows 10 like me, you can store it directly on the root of your C: drive.

Once you’ve navigated to the correct directory, you can download the video(s) by calling the script and providing the link to the video or playlist. For Windows users, be sure to include quotes around the URL to ensure that the script works properly. In the example below, I’m downloading a video that’s part of a playlist, as indicated by the “&list=” in the middle of the URL. This means that all associated videos will be downloaded as well.

With youtube-dl, you can easily download your favorite YouTube videos and playlists and save them for offline viewing. Give it a try and see how it can simplify your video saving needs.
