Projects / LuckyTubes


LuckyTubes is a command-line utility to find, download, and rip audio from YouTube videos. Its main goals are simplicity, low development overhead, and cross-platform usability, in that order. It resembles clive, but it is targeted at playing music that just happens to have a video on YouTube.
