Often something will popup in YouTube’s omniscent algo that I like the look of and want to snapshot to watch later so I copy-paste the URL and throw it into ytget- e.g just now:
Really nice track.
The problem is later sometimes I want to go back and see what else this creator has published, but if I have only the video file it requires a title search to locate it again.
I’ve now solved this with two lines of code added to ytget.sh:
# Generate shortcut to the video echo "[InternetShortcut]\r" > "$date - $title.url" echo "URL=$videoUrl" >> "$date - $title.url"
This generates a double-clickable (at least on Windows) link that opens the video up in your default browser.
This update is now published to the GitHub project.
