  • ffmpeg (pacman -S ffmpeg)


pacman -S hypervideo-gui

  2. Enter the URL of the video you want to download into the top “URL” textbox.
  3. Then enter the folder to save the video to in the “Output Folder” textbox.
  4. Next choose the video format
    • To download the highest quality of video, select the video format Video - Best Quality
    • If you only want the audio (saved as .mp3), select Audio Only - Best Quality
    • If you want another video format, click Get Formats, which will fetch the available video formats and populate the dropdown with the available formats. Warning: some of these formats may be video only or audio only!
