We'll start from a cosuming side (download) rather than a producing site (uploading).


How to download a YouTube video

Though there are numerous ways of downloading the video, we'll use youtube-dl:

$ youtube-dl https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N6-2fVsFV8E

If we do not want to delete the original before youtube-dl merges, we can use k option:

$ youtube-dl -k https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N6-2fVsFV8E

Check what files are there:

$ ls
Yosemite HD-N6-2fVsFV8E.f171.webm  Yosemite HD-N6-2fVsFV8E.f264.mp4  Yosemite HD-N6-2fVsFV8E.mkv

We may want to rename it to a simple one such as YosemiteHDI.mp4 for later use.


Here is the downloaded video:
