    ERROR: This video contains content from UMG, who has blocked it on copyright grounds.

    How do you remove errors like the one above mentioned?

    This appears in case i try to download a playlist and a song is deleted, the program stops abruptly and I need to edit the start playlist command in order to skip the song manually but if it finds another one it needs to be done again and again

    Do I need to build a script similar to the one you showcased so that in case of error it skips song or is there a pre built skip to next in this useful tool?

    This is perfect for what I was looking for. Thanks for the sharing. I used to download mp3 song from Youtube video with acethinker video keeper, free and works fairly well. Share it here as an alternative to YouTube-DL.

    It is so easy to download MP3 with CL tool. Further you can change bit rate & other things.

    Oh yes, thank you!

    I’m taking my first steps with Slackware distro and I’m having fun doing many things on the terminal. So getting mp3 from youtube using command line is also great!
