I downloaded the video from list using youtube-dl, but due to connectivity problem, I couldn't complete my download all the videos. Only 100 out of 200 videos were completed. After watching few videos, I deleted first 50 videos. Now I want to continue download from 101st video. When I start download from list, it always starts from 1st video. Is there any option available to start download from some specific video other than 1 ?

Extra Info : My list link : Android Application Development Tutorial (1 - 200), which is Video Tutorial list.


you can use the command in that way

youtube-dl --playlist-start=101 <URL>

this should do the trick

you can also use the -s to simulate the downloading to check you are doing it right
