dlvid-core

Download videos from websites.

dlvid-core

A driver for downloading video sources from various sites. A lot of modules have been ported from youtube-dl for use in node without the dependency of python.

  • Youtube (ytdl-core)
  • Yahoo
  • DailyMotion
  • Vimeo
  • Veoh

All downloaders are implemented using the deferred interface (Q). These calls return streams that can be piped to any writable stream of choice.

Downloading a file is simple. Simply pass the url to the extractor of choice and pipe the response to what ever stream you need.

  • Dailymotion
  • Vimeo
  • Veoh
  • Yahoo
  • Youtube
var dlvid = require('dlvid-core').Youtube;
 
var download = dlvid.download('http://...', { filter: 'mp4', quality: 'highest'});
 
download.done(function(file){
file.pipe(fs.createWriteStream('movie.mp4'));
});

If you'd just like to gather information about the file available, you can do that as well.

var info = dlvid.info('http://...').done(function(data){
  // do whatever you need to do
});
