You-Get is a tiny command-line utility to download media contents (videos, audios, images) from the Web, in case there is no other handy way to do it.

Here's how you use you-get to download a video from this web page:

$ you-get
Title: TEDxGE2014_Stallman05_LQ
Type: WebM video (video/webm)
Size: 27.12 MiB (28435804 Bytes)

Downloading TEDxGE2014_Stallman05_LQ.webm ...
100.0% ( 27.1/27.1 MB) ├████████████████████████████████████████┤[1/1] 12 MB/s

And here's why you might want to use it:

  • You enjoyed something on the Internet, and just want to download them for your own pleasure.
  • You watch your favorite videos online from your computer, but you are prohibited from saving them. You feel that you have no control over your own computer. (And it's not how an open Web is supposed to work.)
  • You want to get rid of any closed-source technology or proprietary JavaScript code, and disallow things like Flash running on your computer.
  • You are an adherent of hacker culture and free software.

What you-get can do for you:

  • Download videos / audios from popular websites such as YouTube, Youku, Niconico, and a bunch more. (See the full list of supported sites)
  • Stream an online video in your media player. No web browser, no more ads.
  • Download images (of interest) by scraping a web page.
  • Download arbitrary non-HTML contents, i.e., binary files.

Interested? Install it now and get started by examples.

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
