Just threw this together this morning to replace a .NET YouTube subscription auto-downloader that I haphazardly hacked together 2 years ago.

Its a little rough around the edges, and incredibly barebones (a good thing in this case, I hope), but its the first Python script that I ever wrote and I'm kinda surprised that I managed to put it together so quickly.

If anyone's looking for a good laugh/headache, here's a link to the original .NET monstrosity: https://github.com/marlencrabapple/SubBuddy

Don't take me seriously!

So what does this actually download? All of your subscriptions videos? That would be millions for me.

I need to write something to download my favourite videos and put it on cron, this code might come in handy. ;-)

Kinda. It downloads whatever they post while the script is running.

Interesting. I have been working on a script that lists subscription videos and allows you to click on a button to have them added to a download queue.

Threw in support for downloading single videos since youtube-dl won't grab the highest quality video by default if its available in anything higher than 720p. Not a huge deal, but it's one command compared to 2 or 3 in youtube-dl on its own.
