We all have tried downloading a YouTube video atleast once in our lives. Be it a song or a video for your school/college assignment.
True, there are plenty of browser extensions and online websites avilable to download YouTube videos. But, at times either the extension malfunctions or the servers don’t work anymore.

And hence YouTube-Extractor was made. You can launch it any time and download any video/audio on YouTube.


For the latest stable version, head to Releases

Download and extract the source code.

As an alternative, you could also clone the repository using,

git clone

Before running the YouTube-Extractor, make sure you have pytube3 installed. To do this, type the following code in your terminal.

python -m pip install pytube3==10.4.1

As an alternative you can also cd to YouTube-Extractor directory and type

pip install -r requirements.txt

To check if pytube3 is successfully installed on your computer, open your terminal and type pytube3 --version Once you have pytube3 installed, just run the YouTube file present in the src folder.

Note : Typing-Speed-Test uses custom fonts. Most windows computers have them preinstalled. However, if you don’t have them already, just open the Fonts folder present in assets and launch all the files present and hit on install.


Once you have the fonts and pytube3 installed. Just open the src folder and launch the Youtube file.

Note : In order to download an entire playlist at once, just copy the first video from the playlist -> index = 1, and select the playlist checkbox.
