Mark Rice:
In reponse to the discussion on youtube-dl, I have a tip and hopefully a useful script. To download a playlist, not just one video at a time, enclose the playlist URL in quotes. I put together a script last month, which takes a list of downloaded Youtube videos, cleans up the file names, and outputs them to a separate mp3 folder.
