Wanted to download all videos in a playlist on youtube, couldn't find a simple app for that, wrote a short script, works for me, so here it goes:

Either grab: http://phorcix.org/proj/yt/ytdlpl

or c&p
Code:
#!/bin/zsh
dump_prog="lynx"
dump_opts="-dump -listonly"

ytdlpl_this() {
    list=$1
    urls=${HOME}/ytdlpl.$list
    links=`${dump_prog} ${dump_opts} \
        "http://www.youtube.com/view_play_list?p=${list}" | \
        awk '/watch\?v/ {print $2}' | uniq >> ${urls}`
}
 
for pls in $@ ; do ytdlpl_this $pls:t ; done
This version depends on zsh(:t -> basename for bash), lynx and awk.

This creates a list of urls, which you can fetch with your prefered yt-grabber. In my case, that would be[code]cclive < $list[/url]

I'm working on a version being able to get all URLs from a user/channel, but I don't have a clue about JS, which YT uses to "load more". If someone could/would help me with that, that'd be nice.

Either way, use or ignore :)
