Disclaimer

Downloading videos or music directly won't pay the work which was done by these who made it. Please consider supporting the artists and creators if you really like their work, most of these have patreon or similar donation possibilities which can be used to directly giving them something back - it's even better than watching their videos on youtube.

Code disclaimer: I started this project in my "early" days, don't expect clean code.

Features:

  • Cross-platform and enjoyable UI.
  • Playlist, video and channel download support.
  • Many container formats are supportet, thanks to ffmpeg.
  • Download video, audio or merge audio / video streams independely.
  • No APIKey or similar required - just install and use it

FAQ

  1. "Downloads don't work anymore!" - It's always a race between the maintainer of such applications and YouTube. YouTube doesn't provide free access to many of these information Candy provides, so everything is accomplished with small hacks. If YouTube changes something some methods won't work anymore. Open an issue if so.
  2. "What about other platforms?" - For now Candy should and will only be a downloader for YouTube.
  3. "The number of playlist / channel items is not equal to these on YouTube?!" - YouTube counts private and removed videos in a playlist as videos of this playlist. Candy won't take this into account, so it's possible that some videos are missing.
  4. "Some downloads, mostly audio stuff, is especially slow?" - Since it dosn't make sense to provide high bandwidth for most of YouTube's ressources (Streaming doesn't need that much) it takes longer than other, direct downloads. It's not possible to speed it up until YouTube rises his bandwidth.
