YTD2 does the same except You can choose where to save the files. The author is not responsible for downloading videos that youtube refuses to show in your country. Everybody is urged to check ownership of videos before downloading! FILES The source code is available via subversion at https://sourceforge.net/projects/ytd2/. The repository contains either the latest released sources or changes for the next upcoming release. There are no branches or tags for now. The jar-files/sources of the http-components can be downloaded at http://hc.apache.org/downloads.cgi INSTALL There is no need to install it. YTD2 consists of just one runnable file. Maybe there is an option of Java Web Start in the future if javaw is able to use mirror server. RUNNING runytd2.jar should be executable via Java Runtime Environment JRE 1.5 and later. running ytd2 via command shell: java -jar runytd2.jar running ytd2 via file explorer: just click on the jar-file (works if the file has execute file permissions (on *ix platform) and JRE is a registered application for jar-files) CLI run (without GUI window) If your linux-box runs in runlevel 5 you have to clear the environment variable DISPLAY to use CLI-mode. knoedel@section60:~/workspace$ unset DISPLAY knoedel@section60:~/workspace$ java -jar runytd2.jar --help V20120407_0955 by MrKnödelmann Usage: ...

A number does not provide any extra information but the date does. (IMHO) YTD2 is named after ytd (https://sourceforge.net/projects/ytd/) but the author never changed any bug reports nor answered forum posts. THANKS My special thanks go to my family, Dean, Anonyous, "Loki" and "Odie" for testing and support! :)
