Tube Site Downloader

Tube Site Downloader is a front-end to the Linux application youtube-dl. It allows the user to enter a URL and download the video from that site.

The software is my first attempt at writing an application using Ubuntu’s application development framework, called Quickly. The application is written in Python and GTK. Tube Site Downloader offers Ubuntu integration by making use of the launcher icon to display the current download progress.

The main functionality of the software is complete, the outstanding tasks are to tidy up the help and configuration features. Once that’s done I’ll be submitting it to the Ubuntu Software Centre and adding a download link on this site.
