   sleep 1 
   num=$(( num+1 ))
#some Housekeeping !!
for i in *; do  mv "$i" "`echo $i | sed 's/"/ /'`" 2>/dev/null; done
for i in *; do  mv "$i" "`echo $i | sed 's/"/ /'`" 2>/dev/null; done

#Download playlist
youtube-dl -j --flat-playlist "https://<yourYoutubePlaylist>" | jq -r '.id' | sed 's_^_https://youtu.be/_' > result.log
#set video count=1    
total="$(wc -l result.log)"
while ( $num -le $total)
url="$(sed -n "$num"p result.log)"
#%(title)s should give video title
youtube-dl -f 18 --output  $num_"%(title)s.%(ext)s" $url
