clipgrab
« on: February 02, 2021, 11:57:12 pm »
Good evening, I've just downloaded/installed ClipGrab 3.7.2  by his rpm package (ANPM).
It starts, but after pasted a youtube video link in the field for downloading, it warns that link is not a valid one for video contents.
Has it maybe become obsolete due to a Youtube platform update against video grabbing?
Thank you

Wouldn't be surprised if YouTube changed its API again. Also watch out for ampersands and such in the URL, IIRC you need to prune  the ampersand and following text off.

Hi,
The version you downloaded is a bit outdated unfortunately.
The newer version of clipgrab needs webenginewidgets and that we dont have yet.
So  we need to wait till BWW have made it ready for us...

But  donations, are welcome for BWW, so they can further work on QT5 and more OS/2 based projects ....

Hi,

I just compile the latest Clipgrab but unfortunately  it wont work with OS2 anymore.
ClipGrab uses youtube-dl in order to download videos from the Internet
And the Os2 python dont work with youtube-dl

So for now its a no go, sorry  :'(

Tried running make, which failed due to no pandoc installed. It did package it somewhat, but running the script gives weirdness,
Code: [Select]
H:\tmp>python youtube-dl
Usage: youtube-dl [OPTIONS] URL [URL...]

youtube-dl: error: You must provide at least one URL.
Type youtube-dl --help to see a list of all options.

H:\tmp>python youtube_dl https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JV7xHhvowGc
W:\USR\BIN\python.exe: can't open file 'youtube_dl': [Errno 2] No such file or directory

Note that the script seems to be zipped or such,
Code: [Select]
H:\tmp>file youtube-dl
youtube-dl: a /usr/bin/env python script executable (binary data)

Anyways for now, here's the unpackaged youtube-dl. Unluckily it is very CPU intensive while loading, taking almost a minute on this I5 before it does anything.
Create a directory, yt-down or whatever. Unzip the file. run python -m youtube-dl url or python -m youtube-dl --help | less to see the possible options.
Also doesn't seem to like to run on an HPFS volume, so use a JFS volume

Did you run it in the parent of the youtube-dl subdirectory?  E:\GCC in your case.

TeLLie,
...If i unzip it and run

E:\GCC\youtube-dl>python -m youtube-dl
C:/USR/BIN/python.exe: No module named youtube-dl

I think the proper module name to run is actually 'YoutubeDL.py', at least that's what Dave has in his bundle...unless of course 'youtube-dl' is actually a clipgrab module name...not sure as I do not have clipgrab instaled here.

It's the whole subdirectory that needs to be run, not an individual file. As I said, it is unpackaged and packaging should create a binary script holding the subdirectory and documentation.

Hi Dave,
I used youtube-dl all the time till i saw you called it youtube_dl :)
Now its working

Btw: python3 is much faster to use...

Yea, it looks like I screwed up with directions, the underline is correct. Good that it is working for you and I see you're getting good download speeds.
