2.25 - You must be logged in to view this message.

TL;DR: Authentication for private videos, you don't get annoyed by the batch notice, the exception form now goes to the youtube-dl-gui repo instead of another project, preventable log issues, a protocol using "ytdl:", the language file is quicker to load (insert joke about yandere simulator)

Authentication was added. If you wanted to download something that required an account, now it's possible to do so. Quick notice, your username and password are stored in memory until it's passed through to youtube-dl, afterwards, it'll be nulled. Now, a quicker note: I don't actually use any site that requires authentication. Authentication should be straight-forward, but open an issue if any bugs appear.
Downloading using the drop-down batch option will give you options to actually ignore the same prompt.
The "Github" button on the exceptions form now properly goes to THIS repo, and not another project's repo.
A issue during logging that could have caused an infinite exception loop got fixed.
Groundwork for using the "ytdl:" protocol. If you don't know what a protocol is, it basically lets you run a program on your computer from your webbrowser. The protocol I worked on only pushes the URL to the text box on the form, but it's groundwork none-the-less.
The language file uses a switch-case system instead of if-else-end system. This isn't a game, so the logic doesn't get ran every frame, but I didn't want to be looked at like some weirdo.
New translations:
French was added (thanks @ArturiaPendragon)
Brazilian-Portuguese was added (Thanks @orezraey)
(Translations are not installed automatically via in-application updates, download the zip to download them along with youtube-dl-gui, or if you're in the application go to https://github.com/murrty/youtube-dl-gui/releases/tag/2.23, alternatively, you can go to https://github.com/murrty/youtube-dl-gui/tree/master/lang and download a specific language file.)

All features


This is simply a GUI for said application for windows users, without the inconsistent GUI bloat, and weight, and possible viruses. youtube-dl is not included because it's not my program, instead this application automatically downloads it. I don't fully understand how youtube-dl works, so this is only including 3 donload options, Video, Audio (MP3), and Custom, as well as changable audio quality ranging from 8-320k. Custom lets you input your own youtube-dl arguments. Settings is not quite done yet, but will be included once I get around to finding a way to save them. I, then, need to find a way to move the newely created file to a customizable path set by the user, but for now it saves the files in the youtube-dl folder.

Youtube-dl-gui, in my opinion is very simple and effective, and has everything you need, to use youtube dl in the best way, an outstanding feature it is the batch download, it is the only program that has this function, and depending on the site you download it from, this tool is of paramount importance, and gives a very large time gain. For me, who doesn't understand much of the youtube-dl command lines, the tools already available help me a lot! I recommend this program.

youtube-dl is very easy to setup and use on its own (without a gui), and you'll likely only need a few commands to master the command-line tool to get all the audio and video you need in the format and quality you desire. If you really need a gui then this tool should suffice, if you have .NET 4.5 installed that is - this requirement is why I gave it a low score.

On Windows, you only need youtube-dl.exe and the 2 ffmpeg tools - ffmpeg.exe and ffprobe.exe (both found in the ffmpeg zip). With the addition of a shell frontend (like ConsoleZ) you can avoid adding files to PATH and simply have the frontend open to the \youtube-dl folder - helps with avoiding long command-lines. Easy Peezy, either way, youtube-dl and youtube-dl-gui are great tools to get online audio & video to the desktop for offline enjoyment.
