  1. Hi

    So just to start i have downloaded both avcon and FFmpeg so that shouldnt be a problem

    However, what im trying to do is to download only the audio file from video (preferrably mp3 since m4a sometimes shows up only under my video files/ albums and wont play when connected to the bluetooth in my car) but extract that audio file from videos I get from places like Youtube, Soundcloud, and Vimeo...

    From the research ive done I have come up with this to type in the terminal

    youtube-dl --output "%(title)s.%(ext)s" --extract-audio --audio-format mp3 --audio-quality 0*--add-metadata --write-thumbnail "Video URL"

    Now i dont know I am most likely totally off but im not to familiar with these languages or working with the terminal so ill be proud if im even close lol..

    But essentially what i would ultimately want or like to have is for it to download the audio only (mp3 prefferably or a format that will always work when connecting my iphone to the bluetooth in my car) the title of the song, artist, thumbnail, and I think possibly the metadata even though im not to sure what that would be used for other than to help identify things like the album and artist and what not.. but maybe im wrong.. so who knows maybe i dont need or want that part after all..

    Also and i hope its not to mch to ask i would also like to be able to save these audio files in a place besides the home directory where it automatically saves..

    From doing my research ive come across this as the way to do it

    mkdir -p ~/.config/youtube-dl/

    echo "-o ~/Downloads/%(title)s-%(id)s.%(ext)s" > ~/.config/youtube-dl/config

    Now other than the mkdir standing for make a directory i have no idea what that stuff even means.. when i have worked with the terminal in the past i did things like

    chmod +x

    and then

    cd and then would drag the folder directly in the terminal and it would auto generate the path for me..

    So can anybody please help me out?

    This is really confusing for me and ive been working on it all day
