The increible video downloader "youtube-dl" now has an Android version!. "youtube_dl_GUI" is a graphical user interface for the opensource youtube-dl python application. Extract media videos embedded in web pages and display them on any player you want! With youtube-dl GUI you can extract video clips embedded in websites (Even if your browser does not support FLASH!) having the freedom for playing it anytime, on the device you want without the need of using a web browser. Once the app has processed a web page with an embedded video and you extract the video link you can:
-Watch the video in the native Android player or your favorite Android player bypassing also the "This video is not available for mobile devices" restriction. (*).
-Download the video directly to your mobile device for later viewing without relying on an internet connection.
-Send a direct link to the video from your Android device to the TV in your living room or any 'renderer' DLNA in order to play it automatically with the highest quality possible (**).
-Share a direct link to the extracted video by email with a friend or yourself for playing it on any PC application.
youtube-dl GUI is very simple to use: explore the web (or the specific video site app) from where you want to extract the video, share the link address with the "Share" function and then select "youtube-dl GUI" in the list of available applications. If you run youtube-dl GUI manually, the application tries to find a valid video link copied to the clipboard. When you are ready to view/download/share the video, a list with all the available video qualities will be shown. Select one, sit back and enjoy the video!
For a list of all the video sites supported by the app, visit official "youtube-dl" project site at: http://rg3.github.io/youtube-dl/supportedsites.html
-youtube_dl_GUI is unable to extract embedded videos on websites not belonging to the original video own domain. You must visit the original web video for proper operation.
"youtube_dl_GUI" has been programmed in MIT App Inventor 2 environment with modifications of Dalvik opcodes in the final stage.
(*) The native Android media player does not support playback of most low quality videos (FLV). To be played on an Android device a FLV player as "Mx Player" is required.
(**) To send videos from youtube_dl_GUI to your TV or DLNA 'renderer' you need a DLNA control point as "BubbleUPnP" installed on your Android device.
