Hi guys, I introduced myself last time as workting for a non-profit educational org (www.theicc.net / www.worde.org ) and some of you were kind enough to help me grab a file (you used rtm dump? something like that, i remember the name was awful !) - I could not find a version of the program that ran with my computer.
In the meantime:
C-Span sent my organization a copy of this presentation on DVD (my boss is the lady on the far right and colleages are in the middle!!!)- I have this DVD right here on my desk, alas, my 2009 iMac no longer accepts DVD's (it has been shaky ever since I got it and got progressively worse as the years went on) --- In short, I really need to find a way to grab this presentation:
Can anyone help me or tell me a good way to grab it? I've tried MPEG Streamclip to no avail... Your help or advice would be most appreciated...
Thanks a trillion dollars,

Thanks ponens, this seems like a revolutionary thing... I'm on the download page, what kind people.
How do I download it for Mac osx? I note from their website that osx is supported, but on the download page ( http://rg3.github.io/youtube-dl/download.html ) I don't see which option i need? Do I get the windows version???
Thanks so much, hope this works
And I have no idea what python interpreter is!?? The python page is a little scary to be honest... I mean as someone who's not very code proficient in any language aside from v basic html,, and has no idea what this all means

The windows version is just a single small standalone executable. You needn't concern yourself with anything about python, unless you are naturally curious.
They list discreet instructions for OS X using sudo curl or sudo wget. If this is not something you feel you can do on OS X, just forget about youtube-dl.
thanks again ponens ... I believe I've encountered "sudo" before- this means that this youtube-dl thing is something that i use the mac terminal for, correct?
And finally, just to be clear (sorry!) - I'm still confused about the download page, it has a download link for .exe (windows) and full source (is that the one i need?)
I mean it says, To install it right away for all UNIX users (Linux, OS X, etc.), type:
sudo curl https://yt-dl.org/downloads/2014.06.02/youtube-dl -o /usr/local/bin/youtube-dl
sudo chmod a+x /usr/local/bin/youtube-dl
So i just type that into my Mac Terminal and it'll install, correct???
Ok, just forget about youtube-dl. Instead, find the very long, one-time-use url. It will look like this (note that the following one will have expired):
