A simple script I use to download podcasts from YouTube and RSS feeds


A simple script I use to download podcasts from YouTube and RSS feeds. It uses youtube-dl (https://youtube-dl.org/) and a (badly written) bash script. Files are then synchronized to my laptop and mobile using syncthing (https://snapcraft.io/syncthing-gael).

Caveat: It suits MY needs and is provided as-is. It's FOSS. Use it for whatever you want.


  • List your YouTube video or playlist URLs here (one Youtube URL per line) sudo vi /var/snap/podcast-dl-gael/common/podcast-dl/youtube-dl.conf.d/youtube-dl.url
