Youtube-dl: It's the hacker's YouTube downloader.

Why use easy-to-use GUI based downloader when you can do it more efficiently using the command line ;)

Youtube-dl not available in the Ubuntu repo. To download from the official websiet, you need to download it using the curl command.

First, install curl.

$ sudo apt-get install curl -y

Then, download the binary:

$ curl -L -o /usr/bin/youtube-dl

Next, change the permission of the binary:

$ sudo chmod 755 /usr/bin/youtube-dl

Once installed, you can proceed to the next step.
