Download entire Youtube playlist in Windows OSX or Linux

I am mainly a Linux kind of a guy because Linux is fast and powerful and doesn’t get viruses or Malware as easily as Windows does.  Here is a great tool I came across which will allow you to download all videos from any Youtube playlist.

download all youtube videos in Playlist

For Windows download:

https://yt-dl.org/latest/youtube-dl.exe

OS X users can install youtube-dl with Homebrew.

brew install youtube-dl

You can also use pip:

sudo pip install youtube-dl

Linux users:

After you install youtube-dl via terminal. Make sure that your Youtube playlist url looks like this http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLFDB3092A28437EEE

If it doesn’t look like that, Youtube-dl may end up downloading just one video. If you need to save all videos in an external drive or USB, you gotta cd (example cd /media/mint/whateverdrivename)
