  • Integrated search for YouTube Videos

  • Editing tools such as video rotation, video scaling, inserting a custom audio file into a video file, video merging, cellphone ringtone generator.
  • Retrieve profile information and contacts from YouTube members
  • Share your favorite videos by exporting a list of video links, or import a list from another user with a few clicks
  • Crossplatform Code

Unfortunately, PyTube package doesn’t exist in Ubuntu repository. So you must download it from another site like getdeb. And then install it using dpkg -i pytube_0.0.11.4~getdeb1_all.deb. Don’t forget to run that command as root, otherwise your linux pc will scold you. :mrgreen:. Oh, FYI, PyTube doesn’t support using proxy. So, you must have direct connection to get this application working properly.

Note: This application requires ffmpeg compiled with mp4 and 3gp support wich can be found on the Medibuntu repository.
