    Hi everybody,

    I'm looking for a reliable youtube playlist downloader as I want to get a couple of hundred songs and I don't want to download them one by one. What softwares/websites have you used and are they reliable and safe?

    If you're comfy with the command line, or if you just want to learn how to use it (oooh it's so efficient, baby).

    Checkout youtube-dl

    All you need to type in your terminal after installing is this
    Code:
    youtube-dl http://url-to-playlist
    yeah it's just that simple.

    And if you take some extra steps to install ffmpeg as well (I can help), you can convert the videos directly to mp3 right after they download.
    Code:
    youtube-dl -x --audio-format mp3 http://url-to-playlist

    Good question. I thought it's a freeware. :) I've never used the playlist downloader function, i only downloaded single files with it for free.

    Anyway, try this: https://www.4kdownload.com/products/product-videodownloader, i think this one is free.

    Keepvid is another good one, however it seems, that's not entirely free either anymore.

    +1 for youtube-dl if you're fine with command line. It is definitely the fastest way.

    Otherwise, check jDownloader:
    http://beta.jdownloader.org/
    It's an universal tool that can download almost anything on the internet

    Here is how to download a whole playlist from youtube:
    - ctrl+c the playlist's url
    - select "complete playlist" & wait for it to scrape all videos
    - in link collector, highlight all links, rightclick -> 'move to new package'
    - sort the link list by variant & delete all non-audio-files
    - rightclick -> start downloads

    Don't worry, it's easier than it sounds ;)

    JDownloader is the absolut best
    You can set that it just downloads the music and not the whole Video before you start
    If it slows down than its YouTube that cuts your rate not the Programm.

    Thanks mate, and yeah I decided to download only audio files. The smallest problem is that it can't download the audio file of all songs, but that shouldn't be such a problem

    Have you tried that 4kdownload thingy i posted above? That appears to be free, unlimited and supports playlist downloads.

    I remember having similar problem, but I think this is not a JDownloader issue. I can imagine YouTube to limit download speed / connections when there are many requests from the same device.

    Downloads finished now?

    youtube-dl. If the question is "How can i download a video off <insert website name>?" and answer is always youtube-dl it downloads absolutely everything and the list for the number of sites it can download off is massive. and even if the website you want to download off of isnt specifically supported it just defaults to a general video downloader that usually does the job.
