These are some of the things I intend to do with this project:
- Clean the code up and use ES6.
- Resume a previously interrupted download.
- Rewrite parts that are using ytdl-core.
- Support additional platforms (deezer? soundcloud?).
- Get the lyrics too.
- Guess the file name from video name.
- Download all videos in a channel.
- GUI tool (electron?).
