    Do we have a limit call when using youtube-dl to request to Youtube. I’m afraid that Google might block me since I request many times.

      No any limits applied by YouTube or Google, you can download as many as videos, like I do regularly download videos or mp3 tracks from Youtube without any trouble or issues..

    Hi, thank you about this tip. I have a question: How to proceed if there are more than one video on the same url? I’d like to download all the videos, but youtube-dl see only one from the url, for instance this url about Docker self-paced-training course:

    • Ravi Saive says:


      Yes, you can download list of videos from specific playlist, just check out the man pages of Youtube-DL here:

      # youtube-dl --help
