usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/youtube_dl


#1

so i was messing around and came across

/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/youtube_dl/extractor/

and saw a list of random python packages/programs with and their pattern was “websitename.py”

Curious to know whats this youtube_dl about. Did i download something i dont know about? Is it built in all the Linux OS systems which has python3 installed? does all Parrot distro have this dir?

Ive added a snap.

Thanks In Advance :slight_smile:

Much love,
Jessi

youtube_dl is a command line tool to download videos from youtube and other sites.

It comes pre-installed on Parrot. I dont know about other distributions, or if its included with python3 (although i doubt it).
