Now I’m finally ready to tell you what’s been keeping me busy during the last three weeks.
I’ve spent them learning a new programming language called Go.
The process went so well that I even managed to write a new media player application Ymuse. Or, to be precise, a Music Player Daemon client.
What’s the easiest way to download a video file from YouTube, Vimeo etc. in Linux? And how do you extract its audio track as an MP3 file?
You can opt for one of numerous online video converters, but I personally prefer doing that from the command line using youtube-dl.
It supports video downloads from YouTube, Vimeo, BBC, CBS, and about 1100 more (even from YouPorn).
