There is not a GUI for youtube-dl in Solus. But of all the programs one must run in the Terminal, I'd have to say youtube-dl is the easiest. It's a nifty tool. You have to make your destination folder. I know --help files blur my eyes, but I found an article that laid it out pretty good.

Wow, did not know. I did it and it worked as well. But I think I'll go back to the terminal use. The gui options aren't as extensive as the terminal options, i.e., how to handle cookies, etc. But still a good tool in the pinch.

The error message says you need to install twodict. Try

Code: Select all

sudo pip install twodict
Note that this package will be added in the repository together with youtube-dlg as a patch was submitted for it.

Make a .desktop shortcut if you need it.
