Netpack Youtube Downloader is a very simple GUI for youtube-dl. It allows you to download videos from Youtube™ (and other popular video websites) and save them as mp3. It doesn’t have lots of options since it was mainly built for a very specific task and I just decided that it would be better to share it than not to. If you need a fully featured GUI for youtube-dl checkout youtube-dlg by Sotiris Papadopoulos. It’s fully loaded with options and works very very well.
