Examples (For End-Users)

Display the information of the video without downloading:

$ you-get -i http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sGwy8DsUJ4M

Download the video:

$ you-get http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sGwy8DsUJ4M

Download multiple videos:

$ you-get http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sGwy8DsUJ4M http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8bQlxQJEzLk

By default, program will skip any video that already exists in the local directory when downloading. If a temporary file (ends with a ".download" filename extension) is found, program will resume the download from last session.

To enforce re-downloading of videos, use '-f' option (this will overwrite any existing video or temporary file, rather than skipping or resuming them):

$ you-get -f http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sGwy8DsUJ4M

Set the output directory for downloaded files:

$ you-get -o ~/Downloads http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sGwy8DsUJ4M

Use a specific HTTP proxy for downloading:

$ you-get -x 127.0.0.1:8087 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sGwy8DsUJ4M

By default, Python will apply the system proxy settings (i.e. environment variable $http_proxy). To cancel the use of proxy, use '--no-proxy' option:

$ you-get --no-proxy http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sGwy8DsUJ4M

Command-Line Options

For a complete list of all available options, see:
