Tartube – A GTK+ 3 Front-end for Youtube-DL Video Downloader

Looking for a graphical interface for the command line youtube-dl video downloader? Tartube is a GTK+ 3 front-end written in Python 3.

Tartube is partly based on youtube-dl-gui and runs on Windows, Linux, Mac OS, and BSD. It’s a free and open-source software that can download individual videos, and even whole channels and playlists, from YouTube and all youtube-dl supported websites.

Besides downloading videos, Tartube can also organize your videos into convenient folders, alert you when livestreams are starting, and more.

How to Get Tartube:

Note it’s illegal to download any content from YouTube or any other site unless you see a “download” or get permission from the publisher. Use the software at your own risk!

The Ubuntu deb, Windows exe, Fedora rpm, and source code are available for download at the link below:

Download Tartube

For Ubuntu users, grab the .deb package and click install either via “Software Install” or “Gdebi” (if installed).

NOTE: To make the software work, you have to install youtube-dl, and in Tartube’s “system preferences” set the path to youtube-dl executable.
