ypc : youtube_playlist_converter

Codacy Badge Build Status codecov

This python utility allows the conversion of spotify/deezer/text albums/playlists to youtube urls and/or audio/video files.

It supports spotify and deezer urls (album and playlist), as well as a list of terms to search (see below for some examples).

It also supports files containing several of the compatible search terms (one by line). Unfortunately, the mix of several types is not supported at this moment (spotify and deezer urls in the same file for example).

If you want to extract spotify albums/playlists, you need to set up a valid config.ini file with your spotify api client id and secret (go to developer.spotify.com/dashboard/login to create your own spotify application) and place it in the ~/.config/ypc/ directory (see the config_sample.ini file as an example).

  -v, --download_video  Download the videos of the tracks found.
  -a, --download_audio  Download the audio files of the tracks found.
  --no_search_youtube   Doesn't search youtube urls. Use it with the
                        -su/-du/-sf/-df flags if you want to export only the
                        track names from the albums/playlists.
  --num_threads NUM_THREADS
                        Number of threads to use to download the audio/video
                        files (Default: 4, only effective if the -a/-v flags
                        are set).


Simple Examples

Download videos for several songs :

ypc "u2 one,xtc general and majors,debussy la mer" -v

Download videos for several deezer playlists or albums using the name "deezer_export" as export folder :

ypc "DEEZER_PLAYLIST_URL1,DEEZER_ALBUM_URL2,..." -v -n deezer_export

Download audio and videos for each spotify playlists in the file spotify_playlists.txt (one by line) using the name "spotify_export" as export folder :

ypc spotify_playlists.txt -a -v -n spotify_export

The main ypc arguments you want are -a (download audio), -v (download video) and -n (set the name of the export folder, default : ypc_export).

If you don't set the -a and the -v flags, the script will still extract youtube urls for the search and write the csv files (see "Exported files").

You can set the medias (an url, a list of search terms, a file containing spotify playlist and/or album urls, etc.) to download without any argument and ypc will guess which kind of media it is (as show above), or use explicit argument, as shown in the examples below.

With spotify urls

Download the audio of a spotify playlist :


Download the videos found on youtube for the tracks of the spotify album urls contained in a file (one by line) :

ypc spotify_list_albums.txt -v
ypc -sf spotify_list_albums.txt -v

With deezer urls

Download videos for several deezer playlists using the name "deezer_export" as export folder :

ypc -du DEEZER_PLAYLIST_URL1,DEEZER_PLAYLIST_URL2 -v -n deezer_export

Download the videos founds on youtube from a file containing deezer playlists (one by line) :

ypc deezer_list_playlists.txt -v
ypc -df deezer_list_playlists.txt -v

With youtube urls

Download the videos from a file containing youtube urls (one by line) :

ypc youtube_urls.txt -v
ypc -yf youtube_urls.txt -v

Extract youtube urls for several songs with song_export as export folder :

ypc "u2 one,xtc general and majors,debussy la mer" -n song_export

Download the videos from the exported file (works with every urls_list.csv exported by ypc) :

ypc song_export/urls_list.csv -v -n video_export

With search terms

Download audio files for several songs (no explicit argument available) :

ypc "u2 one,xtc general and majors,debussy la mer" -a

Given a file sample_file.csv :

artist1 - title1
artist1 - title2
artist2 - title1
any search term

Download the audio files for the tracks/search terms in the sample csv file above :

ypc sample_file.csv -a
ypc -f sample_file.csv -a

Download the videos for the tracks/search terms in the sample csv file above :

ypc sample_file.csv -v
ypc -f sample_file.csv -v

Exported files

The script will export several files in the export folder (you can set it with the -n/--export_folder_name flag, default : ypc_export) :

  • tracklist.csv : File containing the name of the songs and the youtube urls (CSV, separator : tabulation \t).
  • urls_list.csv : File containing the list of extracted youtube urls (one by line). You can use that file with ypc (see Examples - With youtube urls)
  • Audio : Folder containing the audio files (if -a)
  • Videos : Folder containing the video files (if -v)
