How can I download videos on youtube and other platforms. Which is the best downloader compared to IDM in windows. How do I configure it and its extension in any browser on linux for example chromium?
Use this for downloading videos from youtube: Click here (Mozilla-Addon)
For download manager for command line, try: Aria2
sudo apt-get install aria2
To run try this for options: aria2c -h
I usually just download things to the desktop then move/view/edit them from there.
In which case running aria2 with:
aria2c -d /home/yourusername/Desktop url/file_to_download
It is pretty damn fast!
I have never used any 3rd party programmes, browser plugins, or web services to download videos from youtube or other platforms.
Neither am I familiar with the available tools on Windows.
Finally, questions regarding "the best of..." typically result in strongly opinion-based answers of questionable value.
The good news is: youtube-dl is a working command-line tool in your repository. Please try it and decide for yourself whether it suites your needs.
If you want a good downloader for windows then you can look into Free download manager, it's free of cost and has video download capabilities. Here is the link http://www.freedownloadmanager.org/
But if you want a good download manager for linux operating systems like Ubuntu then you can try "youtube-dl". If you want to install it
open terminal/command-line and type
sudo apt-get install youtube-dl
and press enter. After installing it type
in terminal to get documentation on how to use it.
It's a command-line tool, you can download single video or do a batch download and the best part of it is you can download a entire playlist from youtube if you want to. It has download support for other popular sites like Dailymotion, Facebook, Metacafe, Soundcloud.
i highly recommend you Xtreme Download Manager it's identical to IDM and you can integrate it with every browser from Browser Integration in tools menu
