Hi,

First and foremost, awesome library. I am using the cli to download youtube videos for a research project, and I need the mpeg format for video processing.

I used the following commands, but am unable to save the file to mpeg, instead it gets saved as flv:

java -jar runytd2.jar -h http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YoEuH0pTpjw
java -jar runytd2.jar -h -f http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YoEuH0pTpjw

Please advice.

    Hi,

    it does not work with GUI either. It says "403 forbidden"
    I'll check if it's really a bug.

    Thanks for your post.

    post deleted as it was wrong (both file were .flv)

    /edit: looks like there are more video formats available which ytd2 does not know of.

    I changed ytd2 and released V20130224 so it should work now as expected.

    There is an issue I have no practical solution for. If you select HD (or use -h) for FLV then ytd2 will always download an HD video if possible as there are not HD Flash Videos. At least I did never saw such URLs.

    So, in your example -h -f is the same as -h. The use of -f only will download a FLV video.
    Video resolution has precedence over video format.

    Is this OK?

    Regards
